This seems awfully optimistic. According to the report from a couple weeks ago, they just ordered the 8,000-lb Giga Press, I believe from a European manufacturer. It's supposed to be the first of its kind. Three months to manufacture the machine, test it, ship it across the Atlantic and reassemble it in Texas is probably extreme best-case.

Looks like no CT in 2021.
That article says nothing of the sort. Simply refers to his tweets about Model Y production in Austin and then implies this must mean no CT production there. Which is, of course, plain silly.

Recycled news is the worst kind, added tidbits are often wrong. One can make an assumption on the unsaid. Which is what most are doing. Much different position financially than last product launches. Could see Tesla be more aggressive on a few just to have them out making press. Let's hope good press.

Seriously. Can’t be a coincidence that he decides to roll around GT in a CT. Hoping there’s something there, even if it’s just to get the workers there excited about rolling some out soon.

Someone on Reddit also noted his cousin saying they see Cybertrucks all around the GT factory, for whatever that’s worth.

He responded to a question, "Cybertrucks this year?" and his answer was, "Model Ys, yes."

He could easily have said, "yes, low levels of production by end of year" if that were the case but he pivoted to Model Y. Tesla's own slide decks show Model Y coming online first in Austin before CT. I'll be happy if it's proven wrong as I have two reservations, but Elon completely dodged when asked about CT production in 2021.

Elon has been late on almost all the new vehicle releases except the model Y, i believe that was ahead of schedule. But that was also sharing the majority of parts with the Model 3, Cybertruck is a whole another beast
