TESLA's Cybertruck looks like a combat vehicle from a mid-90's PlayStation video game

TESLA's Cybertruck looks like a mid-90's PlayStation game
Elon Musk's crazy looking pickup truck would fit into any 70's scifi film or polygon-laden PlayStation game from '95
Tesla revealed their new electric pickup truck called the Cybertruck. It has a very angular look like the Pontiac Aztek, sold between 2000 and 2005. For me, it's short life cycle had a lot to do with it's look. The Cybertruck seems to suffer the same fate with a 1970's scifi appearance.

Priced around $40,000 on the low end with a single engine (yeah, you can have up to 3 engines) it should appeal to the budget-centric shopper. Do folks want an electric pickup truck? It can tow up to 7,500 pounds, but only travel 250 mies on a charge and that's probably not including tow weight.

It aslo goes DeLorean style with stainless steel siding and unbreakable windows... that broke during the reveal announcement - causing Tesla stock to fall off a bit. Musk may need to dial back his crazy and take a more conventional approach to expanding the Tesla offerings.
