    The Cybertruck will be built in Texas. Tesla announced the site of its next U.S. factory on Wednesday’s Q2 earnings call.

    Forgive me if I don't display much confidence in Tesla's ability to execute. Model 3s were made in a tent after Musk's epic fail at building an automated assembly line in Fremont. A new vehicle design being built in a new factory = endless QC problems as is the hallmark of Tesla.

    Out of curiosity, is it possible/likely that having a factory in TX will have ANY impact on buying a Tesla in TX? If so, in what ways do you think it could change things for Tesla buyers in TX? It's a broad speculative question: any type of impact this TX factory could have on purchasing a Tesla in the state?

    This will be, what, Teslas fourth factory? I think by then, they'll have worked out the kinks.

    You should see the speed limit OUTSIDE the construction zone! That's why they need Teslas.

    I bet they'll be big enough to allow a factory store and get rid of the antiquated dealers laws https://www.trutv.com/shows/adam-ruins-everything/clips/the-real-reason-car-dealerships-are-the-worst

    Dear Austin friends,
    we need some of you to step up and start doing drone footage similar to what we get for Shanghai and Berlin!
    Thanks

    There is a military base nearby. I don't think drones are allowed in that airspace.

    What map are you looking at? There is no military base nearby. Austin-Bergrstrom Airport is nearby.
