    Radar will definitely work on this truck. Unless you cover it in radar absorbing material which is very heavy and im not sure the civilian market has it.

    Like it or hate it, after the reveal, both Tesla and DeLorean are trending. Kudos to Musk for actually producing a sci fi concept. Although he dissed DeLorean in an interview a few years ago, he was clearly inspired by them, with his use of the falcon wing doors on the Model X and the angular design and use of Stainless Steel on the Cybertruck.

    I bet that it will appeal to a similar demographic to the DeLorean, an individualist, and one that is ok with the attention that this thing will bring.

    It would make an awesome tow vehicle for a trailer queen DeLorean. All you would need is a Stainless Steel trailer.

    Hmmm....

    The fox news network was commenting on the unveiling blunder then someone said it resembles the Delorean. So this is definitely putting our cars in the spotlight again! Gotta love it!

    trailer.
    Exactly, why make a truck that looks exactly like every other truck already being built?

    There have been more than a few comments about how it looks kind of like a Delorean on many media outlets. At least from the older commentators. IMHO it has lines from the F-117 stealth fighter.

    The F-117 was what the DeLorean was fantasizing about when it was getting it from the Aztek.

    Lol. Apparently 146,000 people disagree as they already have that many pre-orders: https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/23/cars/...ers/index.html

    That's over 15 times the total production of our cars, in only 2 days. Just..wow.

    All joking aside, I personally think it is pretty damn sweet. I just can't resist a good zinger but damn, I would rock that any day on looks alone not to mention I admire the hell out of bold outside the box car designs. A truck SHOULD look utilitarian, with function over form, and that my friends is a truck!!

    Interior needs a little refinement but if it makes it to production, I'm sure it will be on point.
