Throughout the weekend people are going to be posting more and more. We'll get to the bottom of the mid-gate question and have better looks at the bed (with possible climate vents) for sure.

This is gonna be good.

Yeah, you can definitely see the rear wheels moving In that clip.
That video shows the third CT, the one they drove on stage with wiper but no frame extensions.

Climate vents may just be rolling down mid window.

So I found another much better video of the potential midgate.
Sadly, it doesn't look like the window is was open from what I can tell.

There seems to be glass reflections where the window is meant to be on top of the midgate. It's clear and not tinted so harder to make out in these lighting conditions...

There is however a clear change in the design in the "midgate" bed wall, in that it appears the original Z shape is higher and stretched out, and there is now a small shelf under the window itself. The window also appears smaller. It also looks like the midgate wall angle extends straight to the bed floor. This "could" allow the window to fit when it slides down into it, however, it might require the window to tilt first and then slide down.

That would get rid of the problem of the window fitting into the midgate itself, meaning it could then fold down forwards into the cab. The little shelf would then become a load stop, potentially with some type of extra fold up panel so stuff doesn't go flying forwards into the cab.

Is this enough to prove there's a midgate? Not quite yet for me, but I'm still hoping.

Oh that would be sooooooo cool if it is true. Please be true!!!
Honestly, I think they knew they had to do it to keep the rest of their potential market from going to the GM competition. CT is so cool, but if it doesn't have folding midgate they will def lose a lot of people for function. I'm really glad they stepped it up.

Now LFG!! Make me a Cybertruck, CLOWN!

I wonder why they didn't just take a few minutes to talk about the specific things that changed.

I keep looking at these videos and photos and I can't see anything that specifically tells us whether there is a folding mid-gate... and I definitely don't see any signs of 4 wheel steering. Considering how many tight turns they made inside, we would've noticed that.

You can hear "Ellie From Space's" voice in the background at the 1:45 mark lol.

I’m confident that at least one attendee brought a tape measure or laser measuring device into the factory to confirm the actual length and width of the CT.

Must be all midgaters and non truck buyers in the crowd! 🤣
How hard would it have been to stick you phone up in the air and take a quick picture. A real truck buyer/user would have. Something is fishy about this verbal testimony. Many people had their phones out.
