No, the CT is the one design that is truly Elon's. The engineering team didn't want to do it. He had a vision inspired by his favorite plane, Blade Runner, James Bond, etc. The rest of the product is less Elon. The S3XY cars draw a lot from Franz's work at Mazda.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??’
Which one, the Lightning or the Silverado? Why don't you get a Cybertruck instead? You could afford all the beer you could drink for the difference! And it's gonna be a much better truck.I would buy but am saving up for a 90k truck.
There's at least one DebbieDowner in every forum. Cyberbeer and Cyberstein aren't gonna change the timing of Cybertruck, not even by one day.More over priced cybershit- please just give us the truck!
