The Tesla CEO told the Ride the Lighting podcast that “It just can’t be unaffordable,” but that its styling isn’t for everyone.
While astronomers agree global internet service is a worthy goal, the satellites may be too bright. Tyler Nordgren, an astronomer working full-time to promote night skies said: “This has the potential to change what a natural sky looks like.” At present the company who envisage a colony on Mars have launched 60 satellites.
Tesla Model Y Production In Fremont Is Currently A Default Plan
“It won’t look like a normal truck. It’s going to look pretty sci-fi,” said Musk, who has also said it’s like something out of the “Blade Runner” films.
While private companies see major business opportunities in low-Earth orbit and beyond, many skygazers fear that space will no longer be “the province of all mankind,” as stated in the Outer Space Treaty of 1967.
So far Tesla has only released a shadowy teaser image of the truck, which Musk confirmed depicts its front end.
The space internet project will connect the entire planet to the internet, and introduce a new line of business for the private spaceflight company, one that could potentially fund their ambitions to send humans to Mars.
Musk told the podcast “the goal is to be a better truck than an F-150, in terms of truck-like functionality, and be a better sports car than a [Porsche] 911.” He has previously said that it would feature all-wheel-drive, a self-leveling suspension, a range of 400 to 500 miles per charge and the ability to tow 300,000 pounds, which is unlikely to be its SAE-approved rating.
The $49,000 figure happens to be right around the current average transaction price for an F-150, which starts under $30,000 but can be optioned up to over $70,000. Ford is working on an all-electric model that could go on sale as soon as 2021, which would likely be the earliest that Tesla could launch its truck.
Maja Moldenhauer from Cuphead developer Studio MDHR confirmed the work on the limited port to IGNs Ryan McCaffrey, saying Tesla only required that the game “play super, super clean” on the cars internal hardware. For this reason, the game will only work by plugging in a wired USB controller rather than allowing for controls directly on the touchscreen itself (or with the Teslas steering-wheel buttons). And before you ask, the car has to be in park to play the game, a move that probably makes Teslas lawyers very happy.

Ford is also investing $500 million in startup automaker Rivian, who is scheduled to launch its premium electric midsize pickup next year with a 400-mile range at a starting price of $69,000.

Tesla has been struggling to reduce the cost of its entry-level Model 3 sedan, which was briefly available for $35,000 before increasing by $400, while a version with a 310-mile range currently starts at $49,900 before fees.
We did not, however, think of the Tesla car line as the next Cuphead port platform. And yet here we are, listening as Elon Musk announced during a podcast interview this week that Cuphead is “working” on the cars central-console touchscreen.
The “sadistically difficult” cartoony shooter will be playable in the Model 3, Model S and Model X — while parked.
Teslas are getting a major gaming upgrade, with Elon Musk confirming Model 3, Model S and Model X are getting run-and-gun platformer Cuphead.
The Tesla CEO revealed that his company worked with Cuphead developer Studio MDHR on Sundays Ride the Lightning podcast.
Tesla backpedals on plan to build Model Y at Nevada Gigafactory.
“Its a cool game. Its insanely difficult, its sadistically difficult. Its a twisted plot. Its dark. It looks like some cute little Disney thing and youre like, This plot is very dark,” Musk told host Ryan Caffrey.
The game first hit Xbox One and PC as a Microsoft exclusive in 2017, before coming to Nintendo Switch in April. Its carefully crafted after the Fleischer and Disney 30s animation style and pits you against a bunch of increasingly intense bosses.
Cuphead should hit cars later this summer, but will only include the games Inkwell Isle One segment due to storage limitations, Tesla told IGN. Youll only be able to play it using a wired USB controller — itd be impossibly frustrating using the displays touchscreen controls.
