Assumed by now we might see the service center demo units have the barriers come down.

So a little surprised we haven’t heard of people at least showing up to a SC to ask?

I was going to go back to San Jose to find out but hoped that they would reach out to everyone that came with an offer to get a closer look. After all they grabbed all of our information at the door.

Bellevue, WA still roped off yesterday. In fact, whole store had barrier up with a greeter asking for signups as folks walk in. No ETA on ropes around truck coming down, and/or vault being shown open, tailgate down, etc…

I think it will be roped off until test drive units arrive.

Yup, I stopped by the Denver showroom on Sunday. They were closed but I looked through the window and it was still roped off. I’m gonna raise the BS flag. The event is over, deliveries have started, time to drop the barriers and let people inside and get their fingerprints on it.

ps - if you see drool on the showroom window it’s mine 🤪

After the mandatory signup at the door, they texted me trying to get me to buy a different Tesla (Cybertruck might just be a bait and switch mechanism??). I have texted 2-3 times asking if we can test drive the cybertruck, still no luck.

Has anyone tried going in wearing a hard hat, carrying a clipboard?
That's the costume that allows you to go anywhere and do anything.

I don’t know that I’d call the CyberTruck a bait and switch mechanism

but I have zero doubts that getting Cybertrucks in the showrooms in November was anticipated to assist in lifting non-CyberTruck sales during Q4 of 2023, a notoriously finicky quarter in any calendar year, and arguably never more so than this

My girl sat in the model 3 while we where there and was like "oh this is nice I could do this".

the entire history of marketing and sales says it’s effective

just like halo products like the Cyberbeast sell more base models like the AWD

we’re simple animals
