Latest Flyover Photo

It looks to me like a lot fewer inventory cars in the latest photo but it is a bit difficult to tell since many of cars have moved. The pictures do not show it but overall the factory looks cleaner as some of the construction debris have been removed.
 
After owning my car for 3 months, it is insightful to see the same color of dirt that I continue to find in the nooks and crannies of my car after it sitting on one of these lots for 5 months. Does it ever go away?

You have to ask it very nicely

If you had ordered yours with that Tahoe interior. You won't notice the dirt. It blends right in.
 
Poor cars exposed to the Arizona desert sand and sun for months at a time with not even a plastic cover on them...

I went by the Ferrari dealership in Scottsdale. They have Ferraris, Bentleys, Rolls Royce, Lamborghinis, Maserati MC20's roasting in the sun. Cars nowadays are manufactured with that in mind. I even saw a 2 million dollar Lamborghini Countach!
 
TBH, all the heat also helps bake out and outgas a lot of stuff
 
The Lucid Lion posted this on X this morning that shows one of my flyover pictures with the factory plans to identify each of the buildings. I thought it was very good.

Yea but the drawings has some fairly glaring discrepancies from the real photos. Love how the stamping plan has been moved over and re-oriented in the 3D drawing. Geez.

The drawings are a few years old so no surprise that actual construction is slightly different. Geez.
 
Then why post old drawings and say in your first post that they're good? They're not good. Both those drawings are wrong. Did you even look at the drawings?

I said they were good because they are the best drawings that I have found and it adds context to the photos. I do hope that Lucid publishes some updated ones. Of course feel free to post your better drawings. I also find your last sentence inappropriate. Please try to keep the conversation friendly on this forum.
 
There have been several site plans over the past two years, some more accurate than others. I've looked at most of them. But this site plan from the engineering firm Kimley-Horn is nearly 100% accurate to what has been actually built in Casa Grande. This one is, in fact, good.

Nice, thank you for finding these.
 
I did another flyover today in case anyone is interested.

Looking West at the original paint shop and assembly area (Assembly now moved to the building to the South), The new stamping facility is in back on the right.

These are the old inventory cars. Not going down fast but appears to be decreasing.

I drove by the factory a couple days ago. Nice to see the aerial view.
