    Exactly.

    Can I meet the team that sat together in a room and decided this styling was worth it to combat door dings at the local piggly wiggly

    Musk also said the glass was unbreakable. I don't believe that number one bit.

    With only a $100 deposit it doesn't surprise me. The model 3 had a $1000 down for the preorder. I'm willing to bet many of those preorders aren't followed through with, once everything sinks in.

    It's a no-commitment $100 deposit, fully refundable. I bet the amount of people who will actually follow through with a purchase will be under 10%.

    No doubt. But based on the available information, it’s already poised to “sell like hot cakes.”

    250k pre orders. Even if a small fraction of that number ends up being legit orders, first year of production is already sold out.

    It will be a small fraction. Does anyone really think that this truck will sell 1/4 of the number of F trucks that Ford sells? It just doesn't make sense. Ford sold just almost 1.1 million F series globally in 2018. There's no way this thing will sell 250k units. This is just people doing a pre order for the novelty of it. If I'm wrong, I'll eat my words but I really don't see them selling that many of these.

    They'll sell that many but not in a single year. Even if the truck is the best ever, Tesla simply doesn't have the capacity at this time to challenge the big 3 volume.

    It's only $100 to preorder, and it's refundable. A great way to stir up positive press, is what that is to me.

    Who rendered that? One of the Big 3 should buy the rights to that design. It looks futuristic, but not awful like the CT.

    Or Toyota should, as it would fit in with them too. Nissan sucks too bad to be considered.

    The big three aren’t going to make a unibody truck. It is nice looking though

    If unibody can be made to tow as much as a body on frame truck, what's the point of BoF?

    Here is a render of something a bit softer and closer to what it may look in production. I like it.

    That kind of looks like it could be a natural evolution of a Tundra in the future.

    Toyota could definitely build something that ugly. Except theirs would run 14s and the frame would still rust.
