Can't one simply lower the air suspension to fit in a normal garage.

That depends on the maximum clearance of the garage and the minimum height for the Cybertruck.

We don't know how low it can go yet, but if you can fit a truck, you can probably fit a Cybertruck

Jeez why is your garage so low? Does your garage door only open 3/4th of the way?

Should be no need; the CT is no taller (or longer or wider) than a common full-size pickup.

Just checked the intended parking spot, 8' door & 24' deep. Funny story why the doors are 8' tall. My previous garage door was lower and I broke a few glass camper shell doors when I forgot and backed out without closing the shell glass. New house and the new garage is idiot-proof in that one particular area, I am sure I will find something else to work on given enough rope.

Elon mentioned in one of the interviews that they would adjust the CT dimensions to fit a standard garage.

I remember Elon saying that they needed to reduce the size overall by 5% to fit in a standard garage, later he specified that the actual reduction was going to be 3%. This was followed quickly by Elon stating that reducing the size by even 3% would make it too small and that they weren't going to do it. The size of the Cybertruck should very close, if not the same, as the prototype. I would actually be pretty happy if they could make it slightly bigger. I remember when they first talked about making a truck that it was going to be a big truck. While the Cybertruck is the nicest truck I've ever seen, it isn't really that big compared to regular trucks.

Let me ask this other garage-preparation question again. (Maybe somebody's seen the prototype close up, or knows if there's a standard with the other Tesla models.)

At which corner of the CT will the charging port likely be located?

Its behind the rear driver side wheel well. You can see the port door in photos.

The Cybertruck should fit in a normal height garage. As stated, length is usually the problem for many garages.

My truck can be raised or lowered around 2 inches either way with its air suspension which is pretty typical for trucks with air suspension

It is a nice option have to have, but I would not want to park somewhere daily that I had to lower it just for clearance.

Lowering mode is really meant more to let grandma and the kids in or if you have a short wife etc.

2 inches lower makes a huge difference for some people getting in.

When I raise my truck 2 inches it is quite a bit harder for almost anyone to get in. 2 inches makes a more noticeable difference than it sounds. I also have non OEM tires that add an inch of height. Raised mode is really meant for extra ground clearance when driving slow though and not meant for parking, even though I am able to park it raised.
