It might need to have been changed due to road legal length and height restrictions. It's not as aggressive looking now though, but even so, I can't wait to have one.

I admit part of the reason I like cybertruck is its aggressive difference, but for long term use and comfort I am excited they are lowering the window sill since I thought it was high before. I had an Audi TT and it had high sills which look cool from the outside but ultimately proved kinda annoying long term. If they have to lower the rake of the belt to lower the sill I'm good with it. Shorter is good for easier parking as long as the bed doesnt get smaller than 6.5. I'm a smaller person so the cab looks huge to me.

None of us have seen the revised truck yet. We’ve only seen rendered guesses. We should probably wait before reacting one way or the other.
Agree- the home renditions of what Elon said completely level the center line , Musk words were more level - not completely level, meaning it still can be raked, but just not as much.

raked line gives it a sportier look (maybe that’ll be plaid version?), but completely center line looks okay too. Doesn’t change functionality, which is my main reason for purchasing.

He also said more level center line.... which doesnt make much sense but we are just guessing he meant belt line.

True - we don’t know for sure what centerline he’s talking, nor how much.

Impossible to tell if the new more level center line will be good or bad without seeing the design changes, it might look bad or maybe even better than before.
Cant wait to see the updated look
At this point I'm not concerned about how it looks anymore. I want to see the final performance specs.

To be honest, there's a couple home renders that I like. But I'm trying to not get excited about them because they are just guesses and could be way off. Don't want to be disappointed.

But the difference sounds real small.

Exactly. Musk didn't even say how much more the truck would be leveled. It could be 0.1 degrees for all we know. The Cybertruck is Musks' pet project and baby, I have confidence he's not going to make its design worse than the concept. Here's an image from the other thread by @CT4FP demonstrating how subtle a change a size reduction and angle change could mean.

I think a raked center line will be conserved for design dynamism. Otherwise 5,70 m instead of 5,90 m will be fine for our little french road 😎
