    Tesla cybertruck

    Has anyone else seen the new Tesla cyber truck design? There's something to familiar to it

    Yes, I watched the launch of the vehicle this morning. I heard coworkers mention it looks similar to a Delorean. Let's hope the vehicle performs better than the shatterproof windows :-)

    Thanks for posting the topic. By asking about the design do we consider the use of a stainless steel body?

    Their door-bashing demo results are different from what one would get with same sledgehammer test on a DeLorean. Elon claims some kind of extra-hard alloy is the key. No comment so far about whether they would paint such a thing.

    As for the styling there will be mountains of posts on Tesla forums about its styling and size. I see more of a resemblance to a Stealth bomber than to a DeLorean aside from the stainless and the big, flat windshield.

    My 7 year old daughter happened to walk by while I was reading a new story about the truck, saw the picture on my computer screen and said "Hey, it's a DeLorean truck.".

    It's more of a concept than anything but I do not seeing any vehicle that looks that ridiculous to be produced. The Pontiac Aztec looks better than that IMO

    I didn't watch the demos. I saw the pictures with the shattered glass though. From what I read the stainless panels are 3mm thick and cold rolled. Don't know any other details. Also read that they won't paint it, but will offer vinyl wraps instead.

    I wish the roof was flat instead of a peak but otherwise I like it. I can see how others wouldn't do. It looks straight out of an 80s scifi movie and I completely approve.

    During the launch, it flashed in the background real quick of the inspirations of the design. One of them was the James Bond Lotus. So between that and the stainless panels, I can see why it would be compared to the DeLorean. I just think it's pretty cool that we'll soon have another production vehicle that uses unpainted SS for the majority of the body panels.

    If you can get past the looks, the specs are very impressive. Will be interesting to see what the final production version looks like as well.

    I wonder if radar will not work on this truck. That goes for cops checking speed and the new cars automatic braking.
