A few weeks ago, we shared some exclusive new pictures of the Cybertruck at Jay Leno’s Garage. The season opened last week, and the episode featuring Tesla’s Cybertruck was aired yesterday. The Cybertruck coverage is only about 6 minutes and 20 seconds (honestly, we were expecting more), but if you’re curious, you can see the whole segment on YouTube.
This week we’re partnering with Evannex to give away a Portable Mini Vacuum for your Tesla. Very practical and rechargeable from the USB ports of your car. Want it? Check out our pinned tweet to participate, good luck!
A few months ago, there was some speculation around if Tesla cars with AP2.0 would be able to upgrade to FSD or not. The answer is yes, and it can be done right now if you’re also getting the MCU2 retrofit. Reddit user ‘chillaban’ has shared his experience so you can read more about it here. If you’ve purchased FSD and are waiting for the Infotainment upgrade to be available, know that you can just schedule an appointment and request it. Most likely, you’ll get an appointment to get both done at the same time.
One could think Elon was joking when he explained Jay Leno’s how the new Roadster rocket thrusters will work, but he actually wasn’t. “We’re gonna use ultra-high pressure compressed air. It’s a cold gas thruster. The main thruster will be behind the license plate. So for acceleration, it drops the license plate, and behind the license plate is a rocket thruster. It’s like full-on James Bond".
At this point, I can believe anything coming from Elon Musk. I just can’t wait to see it.
After all, it seems like the Cybertruck size is going to be pretty similar to the one unveiled back in October. Elon recently said on Twitter that even a 3% reduction would be too much. This leads us to think it will probably not fit in your average garage. He also said that they “want to be a leader in apocalypse technology”. As they say, go big or go home.
