OP is from Charlotte, the plants in Austin. Maybe a friend that works there or something, but I'm calling bull.

From Giga Texas employee:

Cybertruck deliveries should start 01 23' with crash/test vehicles being produced later this
year.

Tesla truly is taking this time (2022) to absolutely crush
everyone on software. We should significant improvements in all possible software areas for all
vehicles/users.

In addition, Tesla employees get ESD for free and they are now launching a program (starting in Austin) where coworkers can get together to give other Tesla employees educational tips on FSD so that more of them opt into FSD beta for free.
Isn't this basically what Elon said in the earnings call? Crash test vehicles before production would be expected.

The first 20,000 res holders will hopefully be getting letters in July. Do you want upgrade to the Quad Plaid?

Sure, that was why Musk was noncommittal about the Cybertruck being produced anytime during 2023.

He said it was most likely in 2023.

My feeling is he doesn’t want to commit to anything when there are so many factors outside his control which can screw up timelines. For example, last time he committed to a timeline on products there was a global pandemic and massive supply chain knock offs which people feel compelled to pin on him.

Now we’re seeing war in Europe which may also cause supply chain issues and knock on effects. I’m sure if this turns into an even bigger mess, it’ll still be Tesla and Elon’s fault if there are more delays.

It's his fault and he's late until I have delivery of my truck - then all will be forgiven as it will be awesome!!! Meanwhile I'll off-road my lowered M3P! :)

Heard a similar rumor from Whole Mars Catalog on twitter. He has in the past had some good connections.

If true, should see some on public roads sometime in the late summer/ fall.

No, I can't see paying more for the quad/plaid. Just give me my tri motor with FSD at position 4200 please!

There is no Tri motor. Quad four wheel drive or dual rear wheel drive. Take your pick.

I wouldn't be surprised if you are right. 4x2x2 and 4x4x4 will likely be the only configuration choices as they are significantly different enough to warrant their own model and pricing.

But in saying that they might all become quad motors first, with a base and performance model with different pack sizes, power electronics but the same mechanical drivetrain and plaid motors.

A dual motor 4x4 just seems less likely if they only ditch two motors from the front and rear assembly, but for that have to add a differential and provide power train etc to the front. Motors aren't the only cost.
