Factual error: During the opening narration Kyle Reese states that Skynet attacks humanity on August 12, 1997. In the shot of missiles decimating San Francisco, multiple 2005-present Toyota Priuses, Dodge Chargers and other late model cars are seen.

Suggested correction: That 1997 was from another timeline before the events in Terminator 2 altered history. It's possible those models may have existed earlier in that timeline than in our world.

This is assuming too much about the alternate timelines. There would have to be more concrete evidence that such things would be altered in said timelines. Also, considering that timeline is supposed to be what took place from Terminator 1 in its own separate timeline, we would go still by our own following the events of it leading up.

Continuity mistake: John has the scars on his face from Terminator Salvation events indicating that it's the same and original timeline, and also Skynet was going to send the T-800 to 1984, but the original T-800 is sent once again in Genisys.

Suggested correction: Terminator Salvation and Terminator Genisys are not in the same continuity. The scars on John Connor's face have been a recurring feature since he was shown in Terminator 2 (played by Michael Edwards). Both Salvation and Genisys were referencing this original design of the character.

Question: Since the destruction of Cyberdyne in the end of the movie, even considering that "Pops" is from the original (now alternate) timeline, wouldn't that fact alone delete the existence of the Terminator?

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: If we accept the theory that alternate timelines even exist, branching off every time there is deliberate interference through time travel, then it becomes entirely possible for time travelers to continue existing in alternate timelines, even if they erased their own origins.
