I wouldn’t exactly classify this a Tesla news and rumors. Hell, you have two other Model 3’s way down in the pack.

Can we please try to keep this thread of some substance?

If the Model 3 and a Testarossa were at the same intersection, which one would people notice first? The Tesla would have to be on fire to attract more eyes.

So are a bunch of other cars. Not exactly the most exciting accomplishment.

I’ll just read the publications about it. Listening to Elon Talk just irritates me at this point.

I never thought I'd be excited for a pickup truck unveiling. Here's to hoping it's not a weird-mobile!

60 in 2.9 and 10.8 in quarter mile? AYFKM?

starts at 40k and 70k for the super fast one

and a built in ramp so you can ride your Tesla ATV into the bed. charging port for the ATV is in the bed, of course.

This can't be the actual truck


They're being way too awkward and camp about this.

I’m so glad I decided to watch it. What a ****ing mess. Glad his inspiration for design came from Robocop.

“The bed in typical trucks are useless!”


The entire time I was expecting him to say “just kidding” and roll out something that doesn’t look absolutely stupid.

Well Rivian, your EV truck competition won’t be that hard.


2019 nomination for best comedy goes to *opens envelope*

Elon musk and his Robocop, I mean cyber truck unveiling.

Good god he’s so high on himself. If he could make it reach, he’d screw himself.


The sledge hammer demonstration was as stupid as Chevy dumping boulders into the bed of an F150.


I’ve stayed pretty calm about prior unveiling and simply said the design is not my style but this is a cluster **** of a mess.

He must be trying to sell this primarily to military/law enforcement.
