One of the really old videos (I think it was a video) of Elon driving the truck to some CA restaurant had pics of him leaving at night and i am pretty sure the range said 612. I never gave it much importance because it was just a prototype vehicle but showed more of what they could do if they wanted to.
The range estimate on my Teslas have, from time to time, indicated I have 999 miles. That's because I have been driving down hill using negative power. At that rate my range is actually infinite but the display only goes up to 999. Of course I would only realize that estimate if I drove in a Maurits Escher world.

I think Nikola motors already patented limitless gravity power anyway.

Anyone want a drone with their CT? Anyone catch this one? A drone to scout the trail you are driving to map the geography ahead of your drive.

[0127] As described above, the representation 504 may include information determined using cameras or sensors positioned about the vehicle. For example, pedestrians, other cars, cones, animals, lights, stop signs, and so on, may be determined by a system included in the vehicle. These may be rendered in the user interface 500. Similarly, the representation 504 may include rocks, dips, inclines, and so on, of an off-road area surrounding the vehicle. In some embodiments, a drone may be stored in the vehicle. The drone may fly from the vehicle and perform a mapping operation of surrounding terrain. For example, photogrammetry techniques may be used. This information may be provided to the vehicle, and used to render the representation 504. In some embodiments, the vehicle may render the representation 504 using, at least in part, simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) techniques.

We will have to see on which days in California at 12:05 PM it was 84 degrees to narrow down how long that 610 has been in play. That could also mean how long a CT3 has been rolling around undetected. All screenshots of the display from prototype has mileage bellow 300.

California temperature ranges about 50-100 degrees F every day. Most days there's somewhere that's 84F at some point in time.

I think Diehard is on to something here. The clue is 12:05 pm AND 84 degrees. That should make it a lot easier if we just focus on that time and temperature. For example, it was 84 degrees at 12:07 pm just the other day in Anaheim. Getting close ;)

About that 20" suspension travel.

I'll have to check but I'm pretty sure the GMC Hummer EV won't even come close to that.

And I'm pretty sure no production vehicle has ever come close, EVER!

AWSOMENESS!

Tesla's design studio - where the prototype was first made - is in Hawthorne in Los Angeles. In Los Angeles, the high is usually around 84F July through September.

Great. That means, CT3 has been around for at least 8 months.
