Wind tunnel testing! :) edit: (at least that's what i think the white tunnel is)
It’s not technically a wind tunnel. I would call it a semi-controlled airflow simulator. A wind tunnel is: (1) a tunnel, (2) generally closed, (3) the airflow is highly controlled, and (4) the device is highly instrumented. The facility at Giga Austin is a mobile unit to get ad hoc measurements at manufacturing facilities rather than sending them out to a real wind tunnel. They need not be accurate as they are intended for manufacturing tweaks.

Thanks for killing the mood, Professor

I am also happy to see anything Cybertruck, this included. I was unhappy when folks on Joe's Patreon page insisted on calling it a wind tunnel, and I apologize for my training and work history as an aerospace engineer but that is just the way it is.

It doesn't even have the aero hubcaps on; they'll be getting false readings.

Would this be used to test for wind noise in isolation from road noise?

I imagine they might be difficult to differentiate in some circumstances.

We accept your apology for your aerospace engineer training.

You shouldn't apologize. Everyone here should be happy about what you're saying. It means they are tweaking the production line, not the design of the vehicle. That should be obvious as they design in Cali not Texas and presumably the design is long since finished, but your tidbit says this is all about getting things going to crank out trucks.
