Sometimes I worry Tesla’s design team just accidentally made some great design in the CyberTruck - like ‘even a blind pig’ style
because everything else coming out of Tesla merch looks like 1990’s Hot Topic merged with 1990’s Gucci, and now they’re just printing items that only Patrick Bateman would buy? To display next to a samurai sword collection.
No shade on our members buying these, because I don’t think you’re doing so in virtue of their design - I don’t believe you would ever buy these but for the indirect connection to the truck (and having been blue-balled for 4 years)
The 3, X, Y, S, aren’t particularly well designed (aesthetics) cars, which was always explained by the utilitarianism and aerodynamics elements. The CT seemed like an inspired design problem solution (even if divisive - good ones always are). The CT made one think ‘they’ve finally shown us what they can do when focused on design’
but then all the merch, the CT wrap choices to date, and even some of the design changes to the CT itself - but especially the Tesla merch - makes one wonder if the CT is a fluke, and Tesla’s ‘design’ boils down to Musk and Franz getting high and going “bro, know what would be siiiiick??’
