    Ford Mustang Mach-E GT Performance

    I was a very early (first day) reservation holder planning to get the GT with Performance package. A couple of months ago, when it was time to convert reservation to order, I decided to cancel thinking I’d be getting my late reservation LE by the end of this year ... and even if delayed a bit in...

    RJ Scaringe: first Rivian R1T deliveries delayed from July 2021 until September

    I just want those goddamn kids, general contractors and engineers to get off my lawn!

    “RJ has been talking to customers who’ve repeatedly expressed they are looking for a vehicle to help them better connect with nature. As such, Rivian is proud to announce the latest in bringing the outdoors inside — no available windows.”

    I think we should start a new theory and rumor that, in order to cut costs, Rivian now has axed front windows... maybe they will offer as an option in future vehicles.

    1st deliveries in November says my Rivian Guide. Communication from RJ expected today

    Of course we all hope this is correct. But we also know that this is what CS was saying until June 27 or so. Rivian is on track to deliver... until it’s not.

    Cool Rivian Patent/TradeMark Info

    I thought about that too. As Rivian’s application is written, the Bronco would infringe Rivian’s claimed patent. The Rivian application describes the turn being accomplished by having forward torque on the front wheels and a negative torque on at least one rear wheel. The rear wheel doesn’t have...

    Cool Rivian Patent/TradeMark Info

    Looking at the full application, the broadest claims (the claimed scope of the patent) are for a K-turn (which is described as a turn with a pivot point somewhere beneath the vehicle) being accomplished by applying forward torque to front wheels and reverse torque (through braking or motors) to...

    Tank Turn-Anyone heard more about this?

    Of course a patent application doesn’t meant that it’s incorporated into the product. In fact, this is a publication of the patent Rivian applied for in Dec. 2019... so no guarantee this is in today’s product. Of course, we haven’t heard anything to indicate it isn’t... but the published...

    Rough Calculation of Rivian Orders, Delivery Times

    Oh, man. This exactly describes me waiting for my Tesla Model 3 for more than 2 years. I was a schmuck.

    If blacked-out wheels are any indication, I can’t afford blacked-out handles.

    We actually haven’t seen any videos of the folding mirrors in action. The only explanation I can come up with is that Rivian just now realized that the drag from the mirrors has brought down the forecasted 300+ mile range to barely 120 miles. I bet they are scrambling to figure out how to...

    I’ll also use it every time I’m working on the truck in the garage... love some music when doing oil changes and replacing timing belts.

    I can’t counter all the negatives, but I’ll be first to say: This meets and in some ways exceeds my expectations. I’m happy and just as excited — if not even more so — to get my R1T.

    Especially if they throw a K&N sticker on the back of that thing.

    Find your Rivian Order Number & Post it Here!

    The Mach-E is not a good test of what is feasible. Ford announced it would only produce 50k units of the first model year due to battery shortage. I expect they planned their production and ramp up to keep the line operational throughout the first year. In other words, Ford had no reason to do a...

    What will we learn 6/7 - 6/13?

    I am so glad not every company (and hopefully not Rivian) is Tesla and willing to ship out not fully baked products in the hopes that loaners and fanboyism will make up for design and quality control.
