Tesla 'Cybertruck'

Recommended Posts

oh. my. God. Shades of the 1958 Aurora, it's even in the same color scheme:

This has to be a joke, someone please tell me this is a joke.
It looks like it was built with cardboard and a few cans of spray paint.

Not to mention; Rivian must be feeling par-TIC-ularly pleased with their work after viewing this.

hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

The only word I can muster is HA, repeated ad nauseam.  Biggest JOKE yet on poor misguided EV fans.  You are being punked in the grandest way by this guy.  SO AMUSING.  Cannot wait to see the struggle and twist to try to justify this amateur P.O.S.

Oh, the JOY!  :roflmao:

Definitely looks inspired by some wedgy 70s-80s concept cars...the Citroen Karin comes to mind.

It looks like something I sketched when I was about 10.   I was ahead of my time...;)

It is not pretty by any means. Probably even ugly.

But I love how different it is.  I am a sci-fi fan so I kind of dig it.  Will see if it actually gets to a production and when.

It looks like it could have been in an '80s sci-fi film...or Knight Rider.

I see we crossed paths in the FB coachbuilding thread, Robert. 👋

I’m going to be 100% serious here; I give Tesla 0% chance that this will go into production looking largely like this. It’s the worst design of the last 50 years at least.

Ah, hah..I thought that was you..;)    I can't imagine the production version will look like this...this is very much a concept car look..

It is funny it reminds me of stuff I drew as a kid, Musk and I have the same birthday (1 year apart)...probably saw the same sci fi movies and car concepts as kids.

I wasnt interested watching the reveal.

I wasnt interested in clicking on this thread, but curiosity took the better of me.

Seeing Balthy's first post and second pic I thought it was a joke.

I googled and now I see the joke is on me.

I am more sorry than ever in clicking on this thread. 

But now, I am interested to learn why in the hell did Tesla designers decide to draw a car on Minecraft and 3D print it.

I am interested to know the theory behind this design.  

But boy, this will not sell in the market place looking like that...

Somewhere, the Aztek and the VW Thing are doing shots together, clapping each other on the back and yelling “FINALLY!”

In defense of the VW Thing...

Its a VW bug underneath and its the German WW2 "Jeep" equivalent.

Maybe Elon is preparing to go to war? 

It looks like a Tiger I  in that the angles on it are sloped to deflect artillery shells.

I think EVERY serious rendered guess at what a tesla truck would look like looks better/more marketable than this.

The Workhorse truck is suddenly the Pretty Girl at the prom.

Exactly. The current one looks like an April Fools Joke release. It is an affront to the eyes. Like I said in the Random Thoughts thread (before I saw this thread even existed apparently lol), Elon needs to seriously back off the devils lettuce. He somehow managed to make the Aztek seem like the hot girl in the room.

Only a real diehard Tesla fanboy could like this thing.  It also reminds me of 70s/80s Sci-fi, would need a lot of aftermarket stuff on that to distract from its shape.

Haha I think I pinpointed when he had his eureka moment for the design of this

Zero to 60 mph as low as 2.9 seconds,  up to14,000-pound towing, a stainless steel body, and a base price of $40,000.   We will see if they can deliver on these claims.

This shows you how much Musk fears RIvian Truck and SUV. Only a die hard Tesla blowing Musk fan would buy this POS.

If anyone is interested in watching, I wish I could get my time back from IDIOT Musk.

FEAR FEAR FEAR FEAR of Rivian, Ford and GM. Their ability to actually deliver rather than a blow up concept with vaporware specifications compared to the Proof proven Ford F150 EV or Rivians truck shows they are trying to keep their customers from leaving them as this will not go to production nor will it be available for sale in 1 to 2 years. They might have a truck in 2.5 to 3 years time.

This is an UGLY Puke inducing insult.

• I don’t see SS remotely being a draw.

• 14K towing is in the same ballpark, but serious tow folk have 2 & 3 tier heavier trucks from the big 4; Ram 3500 can tow 35,000K.

• 14K lb towing will be $70K, not $40K.

• 0-60 is irrelevant in F/S trucks.

Meanwhile: the bed is horribly inaccessible - the sides are unprecedentedly high.

GM should take their Skate board platform and slap this concept body on it and would have a superior truck over Tesla.

Gotta laugh watching the testing here and realize that someone put the wrong glass in after they released video of the testing in the lab.

Was supposed to do this.

Tesla fails 1, Rivian wins 1. LOL
