How has this been on the original prototype so long with nobody noticing?
And this picture has indoor studio lighting, who took it?
Petersen staff?

Tesla Cybertruck New Cybertruck chargeport picture reveals special Tesla logo 1667505309801

This photo does not pass the smell test for me. I’m not a pro, but it looks funny, too clean or something.

There are texture marks above the door, and the door doesn't open all the way, which is indicative of the prototype. Must be after they wiped it down.

I can confirm using my RC car that in fact this does match up as expected:

No thanks. Eliminate the wire, cut out and little light. Less penetrations and detail $20 here and there add up.

Am I the only one who thinks it’s a REALLY BAD idea to put the charge port exactly where all the mud, water, sand, and ice tend to accumulate on my current truck fender?
It's tucked in behind the area where mud can directly be deposited by spinning tires. I'm sure if the mud was caked on thick enough you might have to swipe some away before opening the charge door but that's possible no matter where you put it if it's that muddy. I like keeping the stainless steel exterior as clean and unbroken as possible so the new location is a big improvement.

I do wish they would put an illuminated ring around the charger port like the Model S has so I can see exactly where to plug it in when it's pitch-black outside. My Model 3 has the illuminated "T" to the left of the port but strangely enough, I still have to go in little circles with the charge handle before it plops into the port when it's really dark out.
