That looks fantastic. I like it even better with actual headlight pieces on the sides. Gives it more of a "face" IMO. And I'm a fan of the raw stainless steel but gotta say gloss paint looks pretty darn good on the Cybertruck too!

I think the biggest production change would be to ditch the very expensive stainless steel and go to high strength steel and paint.

Stainless is a major part of my decision. It's really not terribly expensive. I use tons of it yearly at my business. Thought it might be good promotionally ;)

If people think the current design is ugly. How is this better. I love the current design and sharp edges. This makes me want to throw up in my mouth:sick:

Don't like it either. Looks like it was designed by a commitee rather than the work of one artisan. Here's a roof design that works if the peaked roof has to go. If the windshield has to curve, make it so slight that at a casual glance it still looks flat. Love the agressive treads too and I don't know of any reason a street vehicle can't have them. Every Jeep Wrangler I see has giant mudders on it, LOL.

I agree, if they must remove the peak that keeps the aesthetic way more than a bulbous looking arbitrary curve.

People had the argument the tires are too wide and would not be legal in some states, and the mud terrains are not efficient. However the flares cover the tires just fine and i will definitely be adding all terrains if they are not already an option.

Painting ads quite a bit of time to the manufacturing time

Franz said there will be no logos/Badging:

Aggressive tires are legal, the offset of them wasnt

and the peaked top produces lower drag, and strength from a engineering standpoint, Also flattening that peak creates additional pieces necessary for the glass roof, i just dont see this happening...

Interesting decision on no badges or logos. I can see how painting lengthens the production time, but badges/logos would add neglible time. Must be for aesthetic reasons?
