No something I'd buy, but love seeing the creativity in the exterior design. It may be polarizing, but at least it isn't the boring turds that every other brand (including BMW) is offering.

I wasn't a fan the first time I saw this thing, but it has really grown on me. I like the new retro wave/synth genre and this thing just fits into it so well. Considering the horribly ugly cars which are being produced these days across many manufacturers, this thing is really fresh and unique. I think they're going to sell as many as they can produce and like other Teslas I believe these will be all over the place within 18-24 months.

Elon does it again.

Why did they stop at bulletproof panels and shatterproof glass? The average person also needs a vehicle that can sail across a lake on the way to work. Should have been an amphibious vehicle in my opinion (already looks like one)... you can always dodge those bullets shot at you on the highway everyday but you can't drive across a lake without sinking and dying

Would you be really mad if I told you how long it takes up to take up a big pool with just a regular hose? Or how long it would take to fill up gas through a straw?

Gas filling is at one rate.
On the other side we get granny cables, 7kw, 11kw then dc fast charging again not simple different speeds for different states of charge of car.
Fill a pool using a needle,syringe,straw,hose, bucket,flood and a variety of shades in between!

Panel gaps look absolutely atrocious in photos, I can only imagine how bad it is in the flesh.

The flesh option is a lot more money and not as durable and pretty sticky. Would stay with the stainless steel.

As much as I hate Tesla I have to begrudgingly agree, compared to say an XM this thing is way better.

Elon Musk – You Are Wrong About Forming Stainless Steel – Part 1

Musk went on further to also state that the new stainless alloy (developed by Tesla for their starship rocket) could not be formed into any shapes because “it would break the stamping press”.

“Reason Cybertruck is so planar is that you can’t stamp ultra-hard 30X steel, because it breaks the stamping press.” Elon Musk

Are you sure Elon? Various automotive components have been stamped from “ordinary” stainless steel for decades. These include exhaust components (usually 400 series stainless steel), as well as some cosmetic components such as bumpers and aftermarket accessories (usually 300 series stainless steel).

Could the new SpaceX “Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel” be so strong (not hard) that it would literally break the stamping press? I don’t think so.



Thus, Elon should have stated “forming a complete exoskeleton using our new 3mm 30X Ultra Strong Stainless Steel will break our stamping press……so we decided not to form or shape the panels”

Clever marketing? OR genius engineering?
