Tesla Cybertruck What Do You Think?

What does the retro community think of the Cybertruck from Tesla?

Did all your Hunter dreams come true or do you think how could someone actually do this?

It's hideous.
Did the designer only have a ruler at his disposal when he designed that atrocity ?

Windshield should be bulletproof, but he had his 'Bill Gate's Windows NT' moment when they tried to show and test windows.

It should have been designed with a similar look to the Spinner in Blade Runner 2049. at least that retains some nice details but the Tesla design is lazy.

At this time Tesla got 200,000 orders for the Cybertruck.

The old saying "it doesn't matter what they say, as long as they talk about it" is in full power mode here, internet provided that ads.

Further proof that people buy a Tesla as a status symbol.

Looks horrible but I'm sure they'll sell like hot cakes.

Oh oh, how did it ever get to the point where cars in GTA 3 look better than what Tesla produces.

They already do. Seems if he starts selling ice to Alaskans, he will still profit...

I think it's Tesla's first big boo boo

It won't pass the safety regs, it will never make it to market like that (indestructible steel and unbreakable glass!)

Also, DMC DeLorean already tried the unpainted steel bodywork look and it makes it a complete nightmare to do any kind of bodywork repairs.

I expect this truck will be completely revised before it is actually offered for sale.

The Model Y on the other hand is ahead of schedule and will sell by the truck load
