I believe the prototype out accelerated a Porsche 911. Your diesel must be pretty good to match that but with all that torque you stated the diesel would way out pull the Cybertruck. I think you are wrong. Shall check back in three years.


Aaaaaa Time, I never said my diesel. I said my hot rod street rod. If you think you have a tesla that will beat it, bring it. I'm game!

Every body laughing at the cyber junk. Even Denny's. LOL This is golden! [emoticon]

It was only about 10 days ago that Elon Musk revealed Tesla's new Cybertruck to legions of adoring sycophants and - well, the rest of the world who laughed at him and ridiculed the truck's design. Even Denny's took shots at Musk.

And why wouldn't they? The unveiling of the truck was a full scale disaster, complete with two broken windows and a passenger side back wheel that looked like it was about to fall off from underneath the truck. So, naturally, Musk claims that the cult of Tesla has already pre-ordered 250,000 of them. We documented the full unveiling circus in a writeup here.

Now, we're starting to get a glance into why the truck and its unveiling looked like such a poorly planned concept: because they were.

Musk said in early November, just several weeks before the unveiling, that the company does "zero market research whatsoever" when designing a new product, according to a new article from the Wall Street Journal.



Zerohedge wrote:

In other words, Musk wants to enter the best segment of the auto industry: the highly profitable, billion dollar pickup truck segment, and he has done no research as to how best to meet the needs of potential customers.

Is it any wonder the company is losing close to $1 billion per year?

And how does Musk defend the strategy of doing no research? The idea seems "seems especially reckless in the age of Big Data," the WSJ says. Especially while companies like Google, Apple and Facebook have based their success by doing nothing but harvesting and analyzing data. In other words, they don't make blind bets, like Musk is doing.

Let me try to explain to the fan bois why an old truck like I own puts out many, many times more torque that the Cyber junk.

The truck I own puts out 650 ft/lbs at the crankshaft. That torque is fed to an Allison tranny with a 1st gear of 3.10 to 1 gear ratio.

Now that 650 ft/lbs of torque that is feed into the tranny comes out as 2,015 ft/lbs of torque.

But we are not done yet. Now fan bois, we need to feed that 2,015 ft/lbs of torque into the 3.75 rear end.

So, 2,015 ft/lbs go into the rear end and the tires see slightly over 7,500 ft/lbs of torque.

It has been reported that the Cyber junk will have 1,000 ft/lbs of torque. If true, my 12 YO truck will put out 7x's the amount of torque the Cyber junk will put out.

If I have time I will do some more math to show that lying Elon is FOS.

BTW, what happened to the Tusk 300,000 tow rating? LOL


This

With all that diesel torque and power why is your truck slower than Cybertruck?

It is in the same place as the F150 pulling 1,000,000 pounds and the Tundra pulling the space shuttle. These are limited exposition demonstrations not for consumer use. But you're not that dim to actually get pulled into this marketing hype so why do you repeatedly ask the question????


I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 300,000 pound tow rating for the truck by anyone. I might be wrong. I did see where musk mentioned a 300,000 pound tow capacity. I would think it can tow at least 3 times that without difficulty. Heck, even a toyota has the capacity to tow the space shuttle. Ford pulled a million pound train. I would think the cybertruck has the capacity to do the same.

On edit. We may have to wait for real tow ratings on cybertruck but the only speculating on ratings is max 14000 pounds.

There is a video of the model x (that has a tow rating of around 5000 pounds) with the capacity to tow about 250,000 pounds out of a mine. I’m sure the cybertruck will be considerably more.

There is a new search called google....

"So far this week, one Tesla has recorded a very unofficial Nürburgring 7:23 lap time, versus a recorded lap time of 7:42 by the Taycan Turbo.Sep 19, 2019"

So that was more than two months ago. Sorry really hard to keep up with real progress at Tesla.

The difference is Ford and Toyota never stated that was the tow rating.

Neither did Tesla. The only tow rating numbers given by Tesla were max 14000 pounds. Elon tweeted something to the effect of 300,000 on twitter when someone asked about a tow capacity of 30,000 pounds. I think he was being way conservative at 300,000 pounds. Are you possibly getting those confused?
