I already put my deposit on the new Tesla Cybertruck.

I put my deposit on the new Tesla Cybertruck.

I like the Blade runner look. I think it will grow on people.

The truck/range specs are ridiculous and it certainly resolves my two biggest issues with the 4Runner: the gas mileage sucks and it's slow.

I've always been a Tesla fanboy anyway. Driving one puts all other cars to shame.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my 4Runner, but this is a thing to behold. We'll see what pans out in 2 years!

Maybe if it looked like this.

Good luck on getting it in two years. Elon will probably have his factory slaves busting 20 hour shifts and hand-making parts to meet deliveries that are 18 months behind schedule.

I not a fan of the looks of this "truck" as LandCruiser eluded too....but I read that old Elon said...."Elon Musk has stated that the design will allow for full-cabin pressurization and drivability as an amphibious vehicle, and operation on Mars."....WOW talking about a road trip...Mars....I wonder if they would consider adding a optional ray gun as well , while I would love to go to Mars that would be one hell of a drive and I'm not sure I'm up to it!!

Considering that the consistently have issues with the initial launch of almost everything they make, Id personally wait for the bugs to get worked out before I committed that much money. Additionally the Rivien looks a lot better with similar performance.

While Teslaís can be ridiculously fast, and Iíve driven most of them, they have zero ďsoul.Ē

Curios to see how the Tesla truck performs while towing. How does it super hard exterior panels react to crash protection and energy absorption.

I think it looks absolutely absurd, but I did pre-order one because it destroys everything on specs--also it's only a refundable $100 so why not?

I really wish they'd make an SUV variant of it as well. Someone needs to photoshop an arctic camo wrap on it.

We have a very-shortly-after-launch Model 3 and it doesn't have any lingering issues. It had two minor issues initially: one was fixed via software update the other was a driver's side floor mat that wouldn't stay flat. Not sure what you mean by "soul" either. The Model 3 is a smooth, quiet, fast, and relatively stress-free ride and it's quite fun on twisty mountain roads. The only thing it's "lacking" is engine/exhaust noise.

The Rivian (I have a pre-order on an R1S) may look better, but its performance is nowhere near similar.

Rivian R1S/R1T at $70k (lowest spec):
4.9s 0-60
230 miles of range

Tesla CT at $70k (highest spec):
2.9s 0-60
500+ miles of range

I hope Rivian drops their price after the CT reveal because as of now the CT blows them out of the water in basically everything other than looks.

As far as Tesla’s go the they can be hit or miss. The latest issue my buddy just discovers was the his entire computer system bricked and came to find out there is an issue with the computer rewriting data to the computer and after so much data gets rewritten, the drive just dies. He was unsuccessfully in getting a replacement from Tesla and had to settle for one pulled from a totaled car. It was not cheap at all.

Granted we are in the infancy of electric vehicles so there are bound to be growing pains.

As for the Rivian, the performance is comparable to Tesla. The top end is 3 second 0-60 and 400 mile range. The Tesla will probably be slightly faster but for a Truck....who cares. Both are insane. And yes the Rivian is more money but I’ll wait until they can do a direct comparison before a cast judgement.

I just personally enjoy an exhaust note and being able to actually work on my vehicles. Maybe some day but that won’t happen anytime soon.
