Very interesting and I've only seen the first half. At https://youtu.be/J3Orfp1WUFg?t=1817 They talk about the paint shop at the Fremont plant. Does this explain why Elon Musk has had it with Commiefornia?

Watch out aerohead. Denton, Texas might get a gigafactory.

edit:
Now they're making wrapping up noises. Interesting parts are Sandy Munro did a proof-of-concept flying car in 2008, and the connection of the alchemical metallurgy Tesla is shipping to one of my all-time favorite airplanes — the Republic Seabee.

I looked this up while I was listening: insideevs.com: Sandy Munro Thinks Cybertruck Will Be A Cash Cow For Tesla

One step closer to Bucky Fuller's Omnidirectional Transport.


electrek.co: Elon Musk hints at Tesla Cybertruck being amphibious is he kidding?

It needs Siamesed tambours, one over the bed and the other over the cabin.

It's obviously going to be a submarine!

Too lazy to go back through 53 pages of postings, so hopefully this is new info here. Seems like Cybertruck isn't all that original . .

In a post in Aerodynamics/Interesting Aerodynamic Cars... I posted about the Aston Martin Bulldog. Fits this thread as well.

Did anybody watch the Lordstown Endurance unveiling? Don't bother, it was all fluff. But the truck looks pretty decent at a mid 50's price, especially considering it has 4wd.

And Rivian has a new hardcore off-road video out. Really awesome if you're into that. But I think a Rivian is outside of my price range.

Anyway, that's a little update on the competition. I'd still take a Cybertruck first.

I'm not one to salivate over a vehicle, and I'm still not, but I kinda hope a Cybertruck is in my future. If we grow the family, maybe I can use the 6th seat as a selling point to my wife.
