There was a link to submit a request to cancel order there previously but yeah, definite changes within just the past couple of hours. I checked my order page earlier today, maybe 6 hours ago, and it looked the same as it has looked for over a year or more. Mine now looks same as yours and probably most everyone else. Good to see some movement happening.I don’t think they had a conspicuous Cancel Order link previously either, I think you had to email to do that.
Cancel Order has (usually) been there.I think they split out “Manage Order“ as well? (I pasted it together here)

Or maybe I hallucinated the whole thing.
You're obviously free to speculate but as others have already explained there is practically no chance of it happening given everything that's been communicated over the years. Maybe there's a remote chance of a black oxide finish but not paint.You are possibly correct. Your statement that “job postings have nothing to do with…” shy of serious internal knowledge, is another assumption, which MAY or MAY NOT be true.
The real question that I posed was; What if the Camo is there to cover a painted truck?
Unless your W-2 at the end of the year says TESLA on it, it is ALL speculation. I’m just suggesting there is an avenue of speculation we haven’t discussed.
The Hummer (Humvee) was designed to Army program requirements as a military vehicle first and only later sold commercially. In terms of approach, departure and breakover angles it probably won't. There are also many limitations to EV's in those applications (weight, range, charging availability and time).I wasn't even referring to the cybertruck being at a base level bulletproof to 9mm rounds, unlike any other vehicle including a hummer. I meant because it is tactically quiet, would save the military immense amounts of money on fuel, is an extremely capable off-road vehicle (capable of standard off-road, far better performance than any current car, capable of floating in water), more capable in every way even than the hummer I suspect, although it was not designed to nato specs, and I suspect when fully speced out is still significantly cheaper than whatever the military is currently using as a transport vehicle.
Not to mention that the military would ask for upgrades that would make it more capable than it is in its base mode.
To be clear, I am not advocating that Tesla make military equipment.
I am surprised that you would misinterpret my statement without first asking for clarification as to what I meant.
update: but mark my words, even if it's not a tesla cybertruck, the United States military will be using electric tactical vehicles within 20 years.
At GM, the trucks went through the paint booth and then just kind of into a corral out in the open inside the factory. We didn't have a clean room. Things have probably changed a lot since 1998 though...Mostly agree. Particularly about durability. But people like to personalize vehicles. You spend $70,000 on a truck and you want it in your favorite color.
Tesla didn’t want **PAINT** because painting a vehicle massively slows down how quickly you can get a vehicle out the door. When you paint a vehicle, you have to a giant clean room for it to dry. That’s time consuming and expensive. If they have a quick/ easy/ automatable way to wrap the truck after it’s done with production, then it might make a world of sense to do it.
That’s a big huge IF though. Most likely wraps will be aftermarket or maybe done at the service centers.
I don’t think this is an indication they are wrapping trucks. I think these trucks are camouflaged for the same reason the Model 3 Highland is camoflaged. There are features of these truck they don’t want to be revealed yet.
