    Finally, we've found something uglier than the G500 Cabriolet.

      paradigmshift7 no, the problem is we’ve lost a standard for beauty. Same with ugly modern art and ugly modern architecture. It’s objectively ugly

      R.E. M. How anyone can love something so ugly is honestly incredible to me. This is like the ugliest modern art, some splatter of brown paint on a piece of metal or something, that sells for a million dollars. To each their own I guess

      Serious question, Doug: do you love your Ford GT more than Leno loves his?

    The "Cyber Truck" is a piece of shit, but everyone is talking about it, which gets everyone talking about Tesla. Job done.

      I think it looks cool...

      As is, it seems that it should be a light city truck. Not a heavy duty long range truck 🚚

          So there's this guy, he had the insight to launch and land a first stage rocket. Oh and that rocket resupplied the international space station. It took a few tries. Then a rocket carrying a car that someday an entity will exclaim "wow they sent us a roadster too" is now in an orbit that will carry it beyond Mars. This guy makes cool looking cars, about 1/5 a million of them. A truck comes out. And now you a little lisping freak from New England is going to give your opinion........yikes........

            Good review. My problem with the Cyberbrick isn't any of the things you mentioned. My problem with it is that the price points aren't achievable. There's no way that a base truck is going to cost as much as the most basic Model 3. OK, you don't have to paint it. Fine. You don't have to stamp body panels. OK. But how is a vehicle that's going to be huge compared to the Model 3 and probably at least 2,000 pounds heavier with similar range which on a truck will require a much larger battery cost the same??? Also, the truck market is different than the car market. You have to design trucks to be capable of what 1% of people will actually do with them. Even if 99% of people will just commute to work and back in a truck, it still has to be capable of doing truck things like going offroad, hauling and towing. This means that a truck has to be over designed in a way that cars don't. How many $40K vehicles on the market today have active suspension? Appliance manufacturers skimp on stainless steel on refrigerators and this is going to be clad in stainless? For $40K? LOL.

                It really doesn't matter are thoughts. 90% of us here couldn't afford one. Big % here are so far upside down on there current truck. Would have to put 16k with the 70k to get in one. Like the new supra. Toyota failed us. Why? You have a 800 buck car. Keep dreaming guys

                      Try comparing Cybertruck to an F150 with 4 door, 4x4, and 6 1/2 foot bed. Then compare the specs and pricing. I think you may find some interesting results. I’m not asking to cherry pick but why would you compare Cybertruck to any single cab non 4x4 truck? It’s like comparing the model 3 to a Civic which starts at $20k...

                                  You’re reviewing this vehicle by way of analogies. Rethink that position using First Principles. I recommend Googling “first principle thinking”. You’ll find links to EM mentioning this approach as his method of problem solving.

                                    The only Tesla car so far that looks any good is Model S.
                                    But it's too expensive and have piss poor quality.

                                      I know it’s crazy but that is precisely why the truck will sell well like you said most rational people won’t care about the little quirks to the cyber truck but their are plenty of “irrational” materialistic people who would love to buy a cyber tuck to go with their new iPhone and air Jordan’s LOL just being honest truck is gonna sell out faster then a new video game console released 10 days before Christmas

                                          Really Doug??? They have over 200k orders on that Cybertruck now. I heard similar stuff from people when Tesla lauched the roadster for the first time

                                            Sorry about the autopilot. Doug doesn't have a clue how Auto pilot systems develop. The other car manufacturers will take easily 10 years to catch up. I work on software and I know a bit about how AI works.

                                              I think the Cybertruck is the ugliest car I’ve ever seen, so ugly that’s it’s actually attractive! And I just ordered one for my self. And I have never been a “Tesla-guy”. This car actually has a lot to offer in my point of view. It’s very fast (I ordered the version with the longest range), you have a lot of space and storage, it has a very low price with a starting price about the same as model 3. Where I live I would be able to charge it in my own garage at home at almost no cost! So I will get a car that’s very very fast, very fun, plenty of room for 6 persons, a lot of storage space, 4 wheel drive and a crazy look - what more can you ask for?

                                                Dear Doug, I disagree. I think you are not considering many of the important details on this vehicle. It feels like you don't know the uses of a pick-up truck. Loved your model 3 review. Keep up the good work.

                                                  Its just a hype machine lol, people only talk about this cyber truck since before it was even shown. Im pretty sure they know that they will take a hit on this one, but its all about the fact that every conversation is about this thing. They will sell a few of them, but the generated hype will add even more to the tesla brand name in the future. So all in all its probably not about the amount they will sell and more about all the media coverage they are getting.

                                                        Meanwhile Porsche just got the EPA rating for their Taycan Turbo, 201 miles but this “expert” calls a pickup truck with 500 miles of range at less than half the price as being too expensive with not enough range. Is there any common sense left?

It's the perfect truck for a sci-fi zombie apocalypse movie. The pretty trucks can pull 14,000 lbs a couple of times too before something important breaks, which make them go VROOM, VROOM on good days! And that's the end of that movie. Very short, very sad. Or maybe the gas station closed. THE END

                                                                          1. You are talking about truck cusomers, but completly ignore the all other drivers. I never owned a truck, but I will buy a Cybertruck.
                                                                          2. One of the most polarising cars ever. You love lt or you hate it, but you cannot IGNORE IT
                                                                          3. If you look again at this Toy but not thinking of it as a truck, but as a 40.000$ bulletproof, 6,5s fast crazy looking thing like it got out of a CyberPunk game and looks like no other....oooh boy...
                                                                          4. How can you love the Vector but hate the Cybertruck?

Tesla has made some quite amazing cars over the past few years, but is not it. The drawing I did ended up in the back of a London Borough of Enfield SD dustbin van a couple of days later.

I imagine since we gain less per month in our currency than you in us dollar (without currency conversion), sounds like 70k US Dollars is cheap for an exclusive badass motherfucker electric Cybertruck. What I didn't know is that you have to pay 8k usd for the self-drive app, I found this expensive.
