I hate to be a realist, but the CT ramp probably won't be as fast as the Y. Y shared 80% parts with 3.That was your take away? Huh...
I had the opposite feeling, with 4680 production tripling, Semi NOT using 4680 and still able to get the range they promised (and that it will be at no cargo loss compared to an ICE truck, probably thanks to the extra 2,000 lbs EV Class A trucks get), that means that that ever increasing number of 4680 cells are pretty much for the Model Y and Cybertruck.
I think they are sandbagging. I am expecting (assuming no great depression or world war) that it will be more like the Model Y launch, early (in that it will be before August of 2023) and ramp quickly.
Obviously, opinions differ.
The folding process is new, the gigacast is bigger and Tesla struggled with the front cast on the Y (rev ? Y)
This all said, the team that builds the factory that builds the car is getting better every year. Telsa is a true manufacturing expert now. Big, but innovative and flexible at the same time. This is the true story.
