Luck of the draw indeed. My biggest fear, sloppy exterior fit and finish, was realized went I picked up my R1T in December. Audi or Porsche QC would not have allowed my truck to leave the assembly plant. My expectations are high on a $80k vehicle.
Almost every panel was slightly out of...
I just received my overpriced touch up paint pen from Rivian.
As small companies grow they tend to lose touch. My paint pen is a great example.
Rivian promotes itself as a green company yet they shipped the paint pen in a large 12” x 8” x 4” cardboard box. It‘s a great example of the left hand...
Great to hear everyone was OK.
I love how everyone chimes in as If they are professional automotive insurance adjusters.
Our Model Y was in a minor backing accident last year. The total cost of repairs? Slightly over $10k and 3-weeks in the body shop.
The trains, no tire marks on the pavement and incorrect side lighting were the giveaways for me. It was fun and different so I thought I would post.
The 2024 Dual Motor CT will most likely MSRP in the mid to high $60's. The BEV pickup wars are about to begin in the fall of 2023.
A lot of the LG trucks are over $80k MSRP and are tough to move.
Even if the upcoming $50k Dual Motor Cybertruck gets a 40% price increase, which it won’t, it will still MSRP for under $70k. This will undercut R1T and Lightning pricing and put a dent is sales and effectively cause some...
You're spot on. Musk is the king of marketing products with a zero advertising budget. He lets others get the word out. When revised pricing is announced it will be covered by nearly every media outlet on the planet.
The term 30x is used for marketing purposes. The average Joe thinks the...
Here is a leaked photo of what the Cybertruck looks like under the skin.
Tesla vehicle engineers were thinking outside of the box. The cab appears to be quite conventional while rear section is all cast aluminum.
SS and the unique aluminum Giga casting are two of the reasons it's taking nearly 4-years to get the truck into production. Space X engineers have a lot of experience working with stainless steel.
I think their toughest engineering challenge was making the stainless steel front end yield in a...
The one thing I am curious about is the SS exoskeleton. For weight and affordability reasons I am curious to see if Tesla will stick with 3mm, nearly 1/8" thick, stainless steel that supposedly was on the Cybertruck concept truck.
