Since GM made somewhere close to 40 Hummers in 6 months of 2023. I would imagine Tesla will be able to build about 40 CTs in 2023. Am I Too low?

Nah. Just tired of the bullshit running rampant here. Maybe come back when there is a truck instead of people arguing over piles of assumptions and stupid shit they drew in Photoshop.
Oh come on! No worse then watching Jerry Springer and Judge Judy.
My wife had an ‘11 Miata. Trunk was 5.3 cubic feet. This looks about the same. Could handle bags and beer for a weekend getaway or a shopping trip, but not both at the same time.
So bags were left behind then?

Now there is a mashup I might just watch, combine the Jerry Springer and Judge Judy shows.

whats that on the front left of the frunk?

My guess is a cargo net hook that has a matching one on the other side and possibly a couple more further up on the liner to secure items from flying out, when the Frunk is opened?

Seems odd to put it outside of the sealed tub.

Could be a compressed air outlet or just an additional frunk locking point.

Some of you make me feel old at only 60 by expecting everything to be automatic, so the biggest muscle you have to exercise to open frunks and trunks is your tongue muscle. And this is on a vehicle in which weight is a real design consideration because it must accelerate, corner and brake. Lightness and simplicity help increase efficiency, reliability and affordability of an item that is already expensive relative to most peoples budgets.

I can only imagine all you "youngsters" who find it too inconvenient to open a trunk or frunk of their work truck with their hand, must have already upgraded their kitchens with power cabinets, power fridge and power oven, with voice commands, of course. Or maybe you just wave your toe back and forth under the cabinet or appliance you want to open. Because your hands are often full or wet/messy when preparing food. And the design considerations in a kitchen don't include minimizing weight, yet you think even a vehicle should have this added, as standard, despite the extra expense/complication/weight.

I feel like my kitchen is so inconvenient now that I've realized it should come with a power oven door and a fridge that I only need to say "Open sesame, you most awesome food chiller"! How much do these "must have" kitchen upgrades cost and where do I get them? Or, should I just stick with simplicity and come to terms that I might get a little tomato squeezings on my fridge door handle or have to open the oven manually, while holding the cooking tray in the other hand? This is before I consider how many times I have to open the kitchen cabinet doors with my hands full!

And I thought power can openers were an odd kitchen accessory when they started to become popular in the 1960's. I guess this same principle explains shoes that no longer require a manual and laborious shoelace tying procedure. Because shoe tying knots are hard. Next thing you know, a car will not be good enough without a power rear view mirror and a self-closing glovebox. Because who wants to do those inconvenient tasks using manual labor? What if my hands are busy texting? Oh, yeah, there's a solution for that.

Pretty soon, we won't need to get out of bed because the bed will send focused beams of high-frequency electrical energy to stimulate the muscles and provide effortless exercise while an IV drip provides all the necessary nutrients without food preperation, and a VR headset makes you think you are laboriously walking outside using your own muscles and opening your car door manually to get in and go to work. What a wonderful life we could have if we take this line of thinking to the limit! 😉
You are welcome to wrestle with the tailgate and frunk if you want; for me I want to use my muscle for sport. I am surprised you aren’t arguing for walking everywhere, riding a bike, or for horse and buggy. Surely you draw the line somewhere :)

There is Frunk there, and sufficient room to probably fully satisfy 95% of the people who need a Frunk. And the rest would probably make do apart from the exception, in which case the CT is not for you.

I am interested in power outlets.. I would have liked a 240v outlet behind the charging port.

I’m a bit surprised about some of the forum members bitching about the small frunk space.

Remember that lot of reservation holders bitched about the concept truck not fitting into a standard 20’ long American garage. Tesla answered your wishes by shortening the truck to under 19’.

Cybertruck buyers also forget that Tesla uses a cab forward design. You can see in the concept vs. production photo below that the nose has gotten stubbier.

I could care less about the small frunk. It still has plenty of storage for my needs;

-Secure 6’ truck bed (rolling tonneau cover)
-Sub-trunk storage in bed
-Frunk storage

I still plan on following through with my reservation because I absolutely love the exclusive Space X inspired stainless steel exterior of the pickup. No other pickup truck or ANY vehicle on the market offers this type of durability.

note stubbier front nose compared to the 2019 concept

You could have just said you could care less about the small frunk and leave it there. Instead you had to call out and dress down other people. And spare us the fanboy sales pitch. We are all here because we like the Cybertruck.

A closer look at the complaints shows that it's normal for some people to complain voraciously that Cybertruck is too big while also complaining that the frunk is too small.

If they made the frunk bigger and shortened the bed, they would complain the bed was too small.
Maybe. Personally, I like to feel like I'm driving an uncontrollable boat down the road. But to each his own.

The Frunk was a revolutionary idea but Tesla is playing 4d chess.

Who needs a Frunk when you have the Mothers Attic on our dashes. We have liter upon liter of storage up there.
