Assuming that Tesla is able to stick with its $39,900 starting price for the Cybertruck (and that's a BIG if), do you think it will affect the amount of orders Rivian gets for the R1T?

I get that the design is ridiculous and it's fun to rip on it, but at that price I can see some people cancelling their deposits and switching to the Tesla. Especially with Musk claiming there's 250,000 pre-orders for the Cybertruck.

Price, yes, but also availability. Rivian should be in production much sooner, which will sway many fence-sitters.
I agree with that, if Tesla starts ramping things up with the Cybertruck it could shift people who are undecided. Rivian needs to do something to bring the attention back on them and the R1T. Especially with all this stuff between Tesla and Ford now.
