Exactly. I suspect 50-51", just like the F150.
Agree. In order to fit the four 12.5"-wide tires in the bed like we've seen in a photo, you'd need a minimum of 50".

I understand there could be. I make no baseless assumptions that there is.
Hence the use of words such as 'appears' and 'could'. We're in the realm of assumptions not facts but I wouldn't call them baseless.

And some ”4x8” sheetgoods are actually 49” wide (think MDF) to allow for edge damage in transport.

so I doubt it’s actually “4’” wide. Random Tesla employee was just generalizing.

This guy attempted some calculations based on the light size.

When it rains, the Cybertruck wipes for them both. The wind from the swooshing motion just blasts the rain off the S.

The had to install some vortex generators because the effect was a little too much. During one of the rainy day test drives they accidentally blasted a 1987 Yugo into a ditch. Fortunately there were no injuries.
That’s why it’s recommended when it rains that all Model S drivers drive at least within a 3-mile range of a Cybertruck to help the Model S windshield stay rain free.

You didn't use those words.

"There's 3 sizes. The OG with no mirrors, this one with square-ish mirrors, and the latest pre-production model with triangle mirrors."

We DO know there are two sizes, the prototype - which was basically a Model X with a custom body placed on top of it, and the "pre-production Beta" that was seen at Investor Day. We have comments from Elon stating the production would be smaller than the original, and the unknown worker at Investor Day saying it was 5% smaller. No one has been close to or measured any of the other test trucks, so we have no idea of their size relative to the first and most recent vehicles. We also don't have actual measurements on the most recent truck, just comments from a worker. That's why saying there are 3 sizes is baseless. Could be, sure, but it's just speculation without data.

I didn't write that, it was somebody else. When you wrote "We have nothing to indicate that there is a size difference" I mentioned there is evidence to suggest that is the case. Anyway no big deal.

You all look the same to me!

Evidence that the lights were working earlier, vs a truck in which the lights have been seen to be malfunctioning?

I have to say I LOVE the reduced size I think the truck was going to be too big for most situations. Especially for people in Europe.

Just hoping that it weighs under 3500kg so I don't have to get a new license (required here to get a different license above that weight)

I didn't say it was conclusive evidence but it's evidence nonetheless, couple that with the other bits (smaller fenders, console, launch specs) and it would be reasonable to think the beta proto isn't more than 80" wide.

2027mm / 25.4 = 79.8"

And that is before 5% reduction
The OG Cybertruck was 84 inches wide if you believe Elon's tweet.
If you look at the Ford vs Tesla drag race, you can clearly see the OG was the size of a Ford F250. It's longer than an F150 which is 231 inches in length.

5% of the OG is about 79 inches wide, and 225 inches long (or less). Nice fit for a standard 18x20 feet US garage.

Don't ask, I'm guessing just like everyone else.

Yup. The prototype was actually 250" in length, 84"wide. The specs displayed at launch were 79X230", so they fully intended it to be smaller than the proto from the get-go. The Beta is probably 79X230, not an additional 5% smaller than that.
