Does the new Cybertruck design cause major problems for the Cyberlander people?

On the original Cybertruck model the rear top glass appears to lineup with the vertical line of the back door. On the new model the top glass/divider seems to be about 6 inches beyond the vertical line of the back door. I imagine this slight change will cause a redesign of the Cyberlandr.

They can’t reasonably finish designing their product until the Cybertruck ships with it’s final design.

While we have some blueprints and specs out there, they are all estimates. They have always been based on a bit of guesswork and subject to design changes.

The CybrLndr was never more than just a few sketches and a render. While it might make it trickier in that they have less space to work with, they ultimately are no further behind then before.

No, it was also a few physical motion mock ups.

But they were always going to have trouble with the overhang as shown on the original prototype.

Certainly, the cab of their pop-up will have to fit in the footprint of that open square, and yes, that makes it pretty small.

The 6” rear roof projection into the pickup bed footfrint is a clean kill of the CyberLandr MVP - pop down functionality.

It precludes a company piggyback on Tesla, its Cybertruck or any backflash on Tesla product in the event of a piggyback calamity of sorts unknown occurring.

That doesn't sound true at all.
