- 2013 Toyota Tacoma, registered for dual motor CT
At this point, the only thing attached to a CT that might be real is the tent shown in the initial CT announcement. Everything else is artist's renderings (AFAIK).I realize that, but this particular one in the pic I'm referring to is bolted to the roof (bolted, glued, screwed, tattooed, whatever, but its connected to the roof.
The CT is different in that the body is the structure but even so, I'm sure Tesla designers will be adding something underneath the body skin wherever they will be providing attachment points. It's the same as on my Tacoma. They have factory attachment points that are accessible from the roof by removing the rubber rain gutter. These threaded nuts(?) go through the rood skin and into the cab framing. I presume Tesla will do the same thing.
Does this mean I'm attaching my rack to the roof? Yes, if you include the roof skin at the point when the nut attaches to the frame. It's a multilayer construction. Anyway, I see it as attaching to the roof as a general way of describing where they are. The roof skin is simply part of the frame structure at that point.
