Nope. I offered to drive!

You would, of course, have to sit shotgun to a total stranger. And as a side job, I instruct people how to drive there sports cars on the race track, so driving in NYC was fun. For me. Maybe not you.
Can you recommend a good resource to get any kind of education (book, YouTube, ....) on how to drive my car? I am too far to drive to you for an official lesson.

Well, you might laugh, but I think one of the best books out there is from the 1990s by Jackie Stewart: Principles of Performance Driving.

It's easy to read, easy to understand, and does a really good job of explaining the basics of performance driving; apexes, braking, shifting (when cars had standard transmissions), trail braking, etc.

Maybe some day there will be enough Tesla's to rent a track for a day and teach basic car handling skills. I have connections in New England with two race tracks that we could put together an event.

I also want to do a CT event at an adventure park. Jeep trails, hill climbs, autocross, etc. I think that would be a blast!

Thinking about that makes waiting a bit easier ;). You may have to make that an annual event. By the time I get my CT, the rest of you probably have done this three times already.
Thanks for your help, I will check out the book.

The Cybertruck is on display in NYC! @ 860 Washington Street. It's there to coincide with Elon Musk's appearance on SNL. It's there until Sunday, says Musk.






Updated with street sighting videos!




Are there running LED lights at the top of the windshield or is that just a reflection? Inside the truck bed too?

I forgot to mention that this CT was sporting the solid white dash material, not the dash that was seen on the reveal night.

Not new news, I know.

Also, the lower rear side lights appear to have cameras in them. Looks like it as two per, actually.

Anyone can guess what that circle in the bed is for?

there are actually 2 of them (the other is not visible in this pic, but you can see them in the pic from when it was at Giga Texas).

My best guess is 5th wheel attachment point.

Good catch. And a nice protected place to have cameras. Less chance of crushing them off-road if they are so protected by SS.

That’ll be the machine gun mounts.
