Per Jeff Robert's video today:




Looks like a really interesting delivery not mentioned yet...


Tesla Cybertruck Stainless steel rolls spotted during delivery to Giga Texas today (9/20/22) ? interesting delivery


Is that what I think it is? Sample rolls of steel to possibly start testing a certain piece of equipment?! :)

But can you tell what material is is? Could just be the aluminum or steel they use for the MY?

Months have passed and Austin has produced 10000 vehicles.

Jeff, Joe, Brad would spend close to a combined full-time job filming every week.

it's the first time we have seen it.

Timing is not out of sync.

Can't say for sure, but it's tempting

The question isn't if the metal is stainless. I zoomed in and saw no stains so obviously it's stainless. The real question is, did it see its shadow. If it saw its shadow, 6 more months of no CT news. If it didn't, we should see an early CT soon!

Knowing you’re half taking the piss: since Elon claimed the CT is angular because the steel is so “hard” (incorrect term) that it would break presses (incorrect consequence), I can’t imagine that a rolled-up steel sheet would be relevant to any “test”

If it were aluminum, they would've bee able to load a lot more than two rolls on that truck. Makes me think its SS.
It's possible there was a third roll over the rear exle that was already unloaded...?

Aluminum metal sheets are not used for MY, only Model S&X as far as I know. But it's much more likely that's the regular steel for MY
