Issue 194 - New Tesla Cybertruck design

Feynlab ceramic coating in a new Model 3

Thinking about protecting your car? This new owner did PPF, Feynlab Ceramic Coating, and Madico tint. We’re proud sponsors of Feynlab, they have more than 150 installers in the US, and requesting a quote is free and very easy to do online.

Model S

A detailed comparison: Model S Plaid vs 2020 Model S Raven

Great Twitter thread by an owner of both cars, in their own words, " while these cars may LOOK alike, they are absolutely NOT the same".


New Tesla Cybertruck design spotted at Fremont test track

The new Tesla Cybertruck was seen on the Fremont test truck. This new design has rearview mirrors, a huge wiper blade (see next entry), and seems to be missing the light bar that the prototype had, or maybe it is just hard to see when it is off.

Tesla Cybertruck wipers in recent sighting won’t make it to production, confirms Musk

According to a couple of tweets made by Elon, the huge wiper blade that we saw in the recent Cybertruck images won’t be the production wiper. Now, how do you picture the wipers for that huge windshield?

Cybertruck cruising around the Fremont test track

Every time I see a video of the Cybertruck it looks like CGI to me. It is still hard for my brain to process this car is real and will be on the streets soon, can’t wait to see more of it!

Software updates

Sonic, the Hedgehog, coming to all Teslas

That is what Elon said on Twitter. I wonder if Tesla is going to open their platform to more games πŸ€” Also, does “all Teslas” mean those with MCU1 as well? That would be cool.

Tesla App and 2021.44.5 show Cabin Overheat Protection

It isn’t that I frequently want to change the cabin overheat protection, but it is convenient to have that available to change via the app, and that, is what’s coming up soon in future versions.


Tesla China new video

I love seeing the factory, all working in harmony. Tesla is doing a great job in China and soon will be in the new Giga factories as well. As Elon has said in the past, Tesla is building the machine that builds the machine.

First production Semis just spotted

Seems that Tesla built a factory for the Semis right next to Giga Nevada and in the photos, we can see what appears to be the first production Semis 😱

πŸ’‘ Tip of the week

Use your frunk for your take away food: If you don’t want any smells in the car, the best play to put your take away food is in the trunk. Now, don’t forget the food in there or cleaning that up will be bad, really bad.

πŸ€“ What the acronym?

As Tesla fan I find myself sometimes having to remember what are all those acronyms, here is a list of the ones you can find in this issue.

  • CGI - Computer Generated Imagery
  • MCU - Media Control Unit
  • PPF - Paint Protection Film
