Rationally, I agree with you 100%. By every metric it makes more sense to do the model y first and put the cyber truck line in place alongside it while you work out the kinks.Not to burst bubbles, but despite all the rumors Model Y will be first at Austin. They cant keep up with demand for it at Freemont now. They already have the lines perfected and would be easy to replicate to another location.
CT is going to be a all new process to build and lines to develop. Yes they are already working on this but it's not as ready to go as another Model Y line would be.
The Giga presses are already cranking out model Y castings. So far we have seen no evidence the 8000 ton Giga press require for CT castings is even in place yet.
CT is taking 3-4 parking spaces. Looking forward to have frontier comments on how it is to live with.I’m sticking to my Cybertruck production hunch: Q2 of 2022 at the earliest.
Tesla still has a lot of pieces sitting on the table before the puzzle is finished. They have been behind schedule on every vehicle so far minus the Model Y (6-months ahead).
It would make the windshield a bit more strong. The line on top look straight though. The curvature of the glass must gradually disappear as it gets to the top.Also, the CT exoskeleton does have some curves if you look very closely. When I viewed it at the Peterson Museum I noticed a very slight curvature in three areas. The windshield, front valance and frunk hood.
