The Cybertruck is a very futuristic design, a radical departure from the usual 3 box design of pickups. It will be interesting to see how different the production model will look.  

I still think Musk is screwing with everybody. They'll release the actual Cyborgtruck and say "Psych!" 🤣 Noway they are releasing the "Lego Truck" for an actual production truck. If so, they are all severely lacking oxygen out in the Bay Area. :dizzy:

Just because something is really lazily designed & amateurish, doesn't make it futuristic.
If I market a blender that's a dodecahedron in shape with no rotor/blades in it, is it 'futuristic' because no one else does?

It's futuristic in that it looks like it's a prop from a sci fi movie...more futuristic than the hideous Silverado HD, for example, which looks like most any other truck of the last 20+ years but with an uglified front end.

One aspect of the Cybertruck that is very different is the low, pointy front end and sloped back windshield instead of the usual overwrought grille and bloat of a mainstream truck.  I do wonder if we will see sleeker trucks emerge, EV and otherwise, instead of the overwrought, blunt fronts that pervade trucks now.

Like a movie prop from a 1948 movie, depicting life in the year 1990.

More like a 1985 movie depicting the year 2000..  Something from 1948 would be a rounded blob.

About the bolded part...

The ass of that Aston looks like the face of that Tesla.  Its unique because I think its the first time in automotive history that a car took inspiration of another for its ass...maybe Tesla's face is only good enough for Aston's ass?  

Actually, the Aston's rear carries over the styling themes from their cars...look at the rear of the DB 11 and other current A-Ms...

Good eye, front end is obviously mid 50's GM, knew that. I was originally on this '48 Series 62 Conv., but liked the Fleetwood too...

Yeah, pretty close to new Vantage. DB11 has an updated traditional rear. Love 'em both.

True. 

I havent noticed it because it is so subtle on the cars. And nicely done I might add.  This CUV rear end though,  to take your choice of words, has been uglified unfortunately. 

About the Cybertruck.

The most popular consensus seems to be that the Cybertruck could be a truck from Blade Runner. 

I see it as an Aliens universe truck.

Never understood what people found so great about Marilyn, just an average looking woman.

JFK. Lol!

Dont forget married to baseball star Joe DiMaggio.  I think she also had romantic links to Hollywood hunks Marlon Brando and legendary Frank Sinatra.

The girl got around. 

The why part? 

 The answer:   The  wholesome 1950s and the EARLY  1960s.   

Sex was taboo. Sex was forbidden. Sex was a hush hush thing. But there was innuendo galore though. And the image was blondes have more fun. Busty blondes especially.  (I dont even think she was a natural blonde either) But the start of the sex pot, dumb blonde was well on its way and Marilyn was the leader. 

I agree with you Dfelt.  I dont get the attraction either.  But to be fair, she is a product of her time....

Im curious though, what dark secrets did she carry about Hollywood especially when its finally out in the open with this whole #metoo movement with the likes of Epstein, Weinstein, good 'ole Willy Billy Clinton, Prince Andrew, dare I say Donald Trump, and um....JFK...

Heh heh...I have no idea how he jumped from future SUVs to Marilyn....her time was long ago and before my time, but of the 1950s women I'd prefer Suzy Parker, Ava Gardner or Sophia Loren....

For me if I am going to pick a woman from the era, then Rachel Welch.

Course you can choose from so many better looking woman than Marlyn.

OK, then I go with one of my Favorites sense I do love my Asian Woman. Julie Yeh Feng was huge in the 50's and 60's. One of the first big Asian Actresses.

Here is an interesting read on a comparison of what is known about this SUV versus the Urus.

https://gulfnews.com/auto/car-culture/comparison-aston-martin-dbx-vs-lamborghini-urus-1.1574676553090

:roflmao:

Guess the web site did this to get clicks as there is no info on the Aston compared to the Maybach.

Im glad the thread temporarily went from ugliness (AM CUV) to prettiness (50s and 60s chicks) for a brief moment....

I was responding to @dfelt and @USA-1 posts about Marilyn and JFK. 

I googled to see what kind of cars Marilyn drove or liked so I couild at least link it to Aston Martin, but I found nothing concrete to tie it in. (Seeing this is an Aston Martin CUV thread and all...) 

She had a Cadillac convertible, a 1956 Thunderbird.  It lo0ks like she owned a 1961 Corvette and a 1962 Chrysler 300.  Maybe a Land Rover and a MG. 

She did own a Jaguar XK and a Mercedes 220 both convertible and the link also said that apart from her Land |Rover, she did not really like European cars.

So...if she was a sex pot alive today, I dont think she be driving around in a Aston Martin car or SUV. 

I think a Mary Kay Land Rover and a Cadillac Escalade would be her choices for SUVs and as far as cars go, probably a Cadillac CT6...

So there, you cant say I totally derailed the thread.  😜

I don't find any of them to be particularly better looking than MM. I mean, c'mon; Mia Farrow ??

For me, some women 'elevate' their physical appeal with a combination of looks and (perceived) personality. MM was one of those. Another that fits this bill and pops to mind is Catherine Bach from the Dukes days:

Rita Hayworth

Image result for rita hayworth the shawshank redemption gif"

Except substitute boys instead of the girls in the gif...

Image result for girls scream at The Beatles gif"

 

Then there is Rachel Welch.

Image result for Rachel welch"

 

And Ill up the ante further with Barbra Eden.  Just because I could honestly say Ive seen most if not all of the  I Dream Of Genie episodes via reruns in the 1970s that I watched with my mom after school waiting for my dad to come home from work. 

I could post a Genie pic, but I found this instead and I found this to be sexier than her being half naked.
