        Based the on the shots that let us see through the glass towards the back, it looks like there might be a literal one or two foot long bed that would have gotten tesla stock laughed into the ground if they had shown off the actual functionality of their toy.

      Absolutely this. The grade of stainless steel doesn't even matter simply because of how thin all stainless steel panels have to be for consumer grade shit the first place. It WILL bend and deform, and when it does, your replacement panel will be on backorder with the Chinese supplier that fabricates it for at least 8 months.

      Oh what? Your ss panels look warped? No sweetie, per our quality engineers who have reviewed the photo, this is "within tolerance of natural deformation from usage and care of the material," and we're not even replacing your panels.

      Lol not at all. I personally know farmers that wouldn't even give up their old ass 3/4 farm trucks/duallies because they rely on them. They tow heavy loads with a gooseneck on a frequent basis, I have no clue how an electric truck like the Cybertruck would preform under work like that given it's claimed tow capacity. Then there's refueling, it's gonna take a while to recharge a EV truck. I don't know if many farmers across the country have close access to a recharging station since most don't have charging infrastructure in their rural locations, there's not that many here in Nebraska.

        Electric motors are inherently stronger for low speed high weight such as towing, but the range is always the problem. If you just need to pull shit around on a farm it will probably be fine, but cross country you'll want a normal engine.

        My best guess is they need the big flat front as an air dam to keep air from getting under the truck for fuel mileage. Without all the weird creaces, a big flat wall of a front end like that would look very strange.

      I realize this is a meme car that will never see production, but you would think the "brilliant" design team would have driven a real truck before putting a literal open ractangle steering wheel in this thing. Anyone who has ever used a truck for actual work knows you have to constantly use the whole steering angle to maneuver tight spots, hook up to trailers, etc. A wheel is quite literally the most convenient method of control for doing this. Proof that nobody at Tesla has actually used a truck for work a day in their lives.

      I don't know much about the cybertruck myself, but if it's got a sturdy monocoque body, it sounds like it could have a major space saving advantage, which would free up room for batteries and increase range.

          They're not quite the same, since even the outer skin on this acts as support, unlike the average normal car with a unibody where the skin just hangs there. The downside to the cybertruck then is the fact that any major body damage will be a bigger problem than it would be on most cars.

            The only part of a "normal" car that isn't structural is the front fenders and bumper covers. Your pillars, rear fenders, roof, floor, transmission tunnel, and firewall are all entirely structural.

              Alright but based on what I've read, in most cars the outer body panels provide no meaningful support.

              >whole outer skin acts as structural support
              You mean monocoque design that's been around forever? Truly a revolution. But I've owned two monocoque cars and neither of them had an issue with oil canning panels.

              What cars did you own? I'm interested in searching for information about them to see what they're made out of and how they differ from the CT's construction.

                Practically everything except pickup trucks have structural bodies. They don't even sit on top of a "frame" because the whole body is the frame. I've generally heard it called unibody.

    Stainless steel paneling is based and you can't convince me otherwise. No more worrying about the slightest ding and scrape fucking up your paintjob, sun fade and clearcoat cracking.

      It will be coated. No way it isn’t as it will swirl and scratch too easily.

    i'm probably getting old, because i legitimately think this car is PT Cruiser-level ugly. the retarded muhnimaleest tesla interior has always looked awful and looks even worse in contrast to the angular exterior.
    i have a zoomie in one of my tg groups that loves tesla and daddy elon and the interior and le yoke which only lends strength to my theory that i'm too old to like tesla.
    i love the engineering in the plaid and the 0.0002 second 0-60 and shit but all these childish decisions like the interior and yoke are such a massive turnoff.

      No, you're not getting old, every tesla is ugly as fuck. They're EVs, they could be what ever shape they want, and woke up and chose Downey.

        the audis are the bottom of the barrel in EV design and tesla still looks worse
        the taycan legitimately looks good, and the tesla looks MUCH worse.

    I'm curious to see how it'll end up. The car industry is boring and everything is predictable, so it'll be interesting to see if they can somehow make this a successful product in the long term.

    Do Tesla cars HAVE to stop when you walk/drive in front of them because of their programming? I know they dont have fully self driving but most cars have that auto break feature or are they just collision detection at certain speeds. But if two people wanted to sit in front and behind of a tesla can they just trap that vehicle? If it was a regular car and the person considered it life-threatening enough they could just try to drive around the person or hit them. But from what i understand a Tesla wouldnt budge. Is that true? What about if you just walked in front of one going 55. Obviously most people would swerve anyway and if it was able to be proven that walking in front was done intentionally that would elevate it to some kind of murder charge. but a high profile assassin-prone target may have some policy of just plowing down a random person trying to walk in front of their path when going high speeds. (they probably just wouldnt have a tesla then or override that auto stop/auto swerve shit. Anyway I just want to exploit telsas more. I think im going to just ignore them at 4 way stops since I no longer have to worry about the driver being an idiot. The car will stop for me.

      Apparently on autopilot they do stop for pedestrians. I know nothing beyond what I just googled though.

      You'd get the gun to your head or just get run over. Autopilot only stops in emergencies. Driver can still override and run you over like a bitch you are.

    I don't think the fit and finish is worthy of the price tag, but for like $35k that would be a really cool trugg.

    Wow so it fucking turns out that cars are made from very thin sheet steel and one of the reasons manufacturers stamp compound curves and body lines into them is to help them stay rigid, and that cladding a car in flat lengths of thin sheet results in shitty bendy panels.

      Supposedly it's made out of sheet metal too thick to stamp like a regular car and the whole outer skin acts as structural support. Probably just another lie by le evil racist oppressor elon musk, I know, but that's what I've read.

        You mean monocoque design that's been around forever? Truly a revolution. But I've owned two monocoque cars and neither of them had an issue with oil canning panels.

      Its likely gonna be coldrolled 3-4mm stainless steel that they use at Starship construction.

    How is this not a road hazard when light reflects off any panel?
    And don't you have to engineer vehicles these days to be pedestrian safe in the event of a collision to be road legal? The thing looks like it's meant to kill anyone it strikes.
