If there are major changes to the prototype other than mirrors, wipers or batteries, I’m out and going with hummer. I ordered my Cybertruck in the beginning based on the prototypes look and size I’m not trying to buy an electric ranger. I don’t feel I’m the only one that feels this way, other than those that have always bought subcompact vehicles with a small garage or no garage. They can wait for the sub compact pickup of the future. I want a big ground pounding bullet proof tank that can blast thru road blocks at lightning speed and laugh all the the competition. HELL YAAAAAAA
Yep! As long as it will fit in my garage and parking spaces. For what it is worth, Elon first said 5% smaller, then he said 3% smaller, then he said same size, then I heard somewhere one inch narrower and 6 inches shorter, so it is anybody's guess. Guess we'll have to wait "a month or so" to find out for this revision. Guess you could always put those "monster truck" car smashing wheels on it if that suits you. Maybe cheaper (and bigger) than a Hummer EV.

I would like to see a 400+ miles Dual Motor.
Any idea of when this announcement will take place, does Tesla have something else going on in December where this could be included or will it be all about the CT.

C'mon, C'mon, C'MON! Get this thing moving!
I can't wait another day! DETAILS, DETAILS, I NEED DETAILS!
And they better let some people crawl all over it with cameras and even calipers.
None of this six feet away behind a velvet rope schtick. Fuzzy pictures on a screen crap.

I want to know what REALLY is going to be used for bed tie downs... where the ladder rack attachment points are... exactly how the rear seat is fastened to the floor.
And a thousand more... The little things mean a lot.

I have a HD image that shows those things. I reduced the size on this graphic but here it is.

Now with a rack mounted to these points, and with an inch or so clearance from the body and the tailgates adjustable flip up flap raised to stop whatever you were carrying sliding off I wonder what length of pipe, sheet or timber you could strap to that rack before you overhang the top of the windscreen, not that overhanging it would be a major issue but keeping it below that point would make it more aerodynamic. Just a thought.

I would think that most racks for carrying longer things would still be horizontal and not sloping. No need to follow the lines of the roof. 16' kayaks would be nose high and just catching the wind on a sloping rack. Bike racks would be fine following the slope.

The less they catch the wind, the less range is lost. That's why the standard bike rack offered for a Tesla is on the back bumper.
