Not a Cybertruck (yet)

The limiting dimension in most cases will be the height of the open garage door.
I think the automatic suspension is supposed to remedy that, e.g. the CT will automatically lower itself to minimum height as you approach your home.

While the show did indeed show the Cybertruck, the show was a big letdown. The only thing I got from the show that I didn't get from the trailers was Elon standing on the vault cover... No, wait. That was in the trailer. Most. Disappointing. Leno. Drive. Ever.
My thought exactly. The entire CT-related videos shown were previously released. It was perfect promotional material, but why release essentially the program as a teaser?

I did learn two things from the episode;
-The strength of the vault cover is outstanding
-Tesla scrapped the marble looking dashboard in the concept for a solid white one

Hoping that the YouTube Jay Leno's Garage channel shows an expanded segment as that was just 7 minutes air time.

Also disappointed in the show.
did not learn anything new except the rear cover is very strong and can support some weight.
also it was nice to see how the vault cover retracted into the bed cleanly.

I agree. I’m not a fan of the white dash.

I can already see the glare from reflections of a white dash. No thank you. If they truly do end up being white, mine will be either covered or painted by the end of the first day.

Yeah, the CNBC show was awful. I hope cable TV producers just ruined it and there is a lot more footage and more car guy questions from Jay.
Leno's YouTube channel is great, I had no idea how bad the CNBC show was, until I watched this.

With Elon you never quite know until it’s put into production. First he said 5%, then 3% and then tweeted the concept size will not change. My guess is that the majority of buyers want their new pride and joy to fit inside a standard residential two car garage (18’ wide, 20’ deep).
Standard shmandard.
Smart Summons from robotaxi parking lot + garage conversion net additional living space value = paid for CT.

Forget Jay and go watch Sandy Munroe blogs. Jay just likes cool things, Sandy is a real trucker.
