The more I think about and learn about the CT the sharper my vision of my ideal CT comes into focus. I know we all have our opinions and needs so my CT may not be your best choice but that's part of the fun of sharing on this board... anyway if I built it it would have:

Side view mirrors with big convex mirrors built in.... like a tow mirror
Rear view mirror
6 pass seating with fold down armrest middle front
A round heated steering wheel
An awesome stereo with external speakers for tail gate parties
Ability to slave power to the house if needed
Multiple outlets in the vault and frunk to plug in
A sunroof that opens
Huge frunk
Door handles
And all of the amazing stuff that sets the CT apart.... stainless steel, vault, auto pilot, FSD, long range, and incredible style.

That's alot of extra equipment to pay for.

There will be 360 camera coverage.
There will be a main screen and rear view screen.
There will be external speakers on the Cybertruck.
The center seats will fold down for an armrest.
The yoke probably will be heated.
There will be many outlets in the Vault, probably some in the frunk.
The frunk will be bigger than most trunks.
There won't be any need for door handles.

The only thing on your list you'll miss really is the roof. But if we get the midgate, it'll be like it opens.

Looks like a pretty great list. I am going to add round steering wheel to the list. And I would really like to see the gate fold down flat so that you can sleep in the vault and the cab at the same time.

Forgive me if I am incorrect, the post reads of trolling. Sounds as if you are attempting to push the F150. I don’t know where sunroof came into play.

More power to you for whichever vehicle is best suited to your need. My use, very happy with the CT direction.

Not trying to troll... I actually just came out of a lease on an F150. I couldn't stand how easily the aluminum body dented and scratched so easily. I am very much looking forward to my durable CT.
My CT design is just a little more traditional with mirrors and a round steering wheel.

My Cybertruck would have… a giant ribbon on it because I got it for my next birthday… in May.

* Would also love the mid gate.
* I’m hoping I can put two bikes in the back with the vault closed.

Plus a few other little tweaks. But even the above are niggles, I’d be content with what rolled out on stage. Or at least the production version of that with the specs they’ve posted.

I like your list, although I have no need for a sunroof or beefed up audio. One thing I would like to add is a traditional dash display like the model S. I know the main screen will have all relevant info but I would still like to be able to glance slightly downward to see speed and a few indicator lights for high beams, blind spot detect, etc. I’d also love to have stalks for shifter and signal instead of buttons but that ain’t happening.

Everything we think it'll have plus:

- A 10k (minimum) winch
- Bulkhead passthrough or fold down for bed access
- Climate control for the bed (with tonneau closed)
- Air compressor
- Heads-up-display

Move the rear view mirror to the area reserved for gauges.

windshield will be completely clean, no screen nor conduit dropping from the top.

if we are retraining side view mirror visual cue location, let’s go all the way.

I wanna plug my 50 amp camper into the truck for power.

I'd also like to be able to plug the solar on my camper into the truck and have it charge while driving. (yes, I'm aware my camper will not keep up with the electrical needs of the CT)

I need a brake controller for my trailer

I want a charge port in the front of the truck so I don't need to unhook the trailer.

I MUST HAVE the ability to pull a 5th wheel.

Ability to plug trailer backup camera into CT monitor.

I hope it’s so you can reposition a fifth wheel or maybe for short runs? I’m afraid a load heavy enough that a 5th wheel is mandatory would require unpractical charging times. I agree though, it would be a bonus if the CT could jockey my 5th wheels around too.

Nope. I want it to be my tow vehicle.
My plan is to (hopefully) get up and going at 8am, tow at 50 mph till noon, charge during lunch, then tow to a campground to recharge for the next morning.

We won't be traveling fast, but we're not in a hurry.

If it won't do it, and my bitcoin does well, I'll just get the semi. :)

Hey I think I somehow end up behind you every time I’m late for an appointment 😆.

Most of all I want an automated GO-FINDING-A-PARKING-SPACE function. I would looove to be able to pull up the front of an establishment and press "Automatic Valet" button. Is it lazy? Yep. Would it at times be possibly illegal or obnoxious? Also yes. Would it be cool af? Hell yeah!

Also,
  • I would love solar panels even though I still think they are excessive.
  • We've beaten the T-slot thing to death around here but I'm hoping.
  • Round steering wheel.
  • Ability in software to tell the CT which tires it has on w/o going to a service center, basically make tire changes and software play nice.
  • Winch mount/frunk mounted winch
  • Telemetry through telematics, racing team quality information available
  • and FFS A MAP SYSTEM THAT ISN'T BORDERLINE GARBAGE
