    Designers must have worked on F117 Nighthawk.

    Wonder if it evades police radar? That would be a selling point!

    Just need tinfoil on your windshield wipers or in your hub caps to beat the speed gun....scientific FACT.

    I'm gonna head back to the office Joe and finish up on the Cybertruck design. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I've got some limited experience with Tesla automobiles and can tell you all for a fact I would only have one if it was given to me.

    Truck is awesome. Look at the performance numbers. We all shoot glocks, and you think this truck is ugly. That’s funny.

    The linked article said that a "major league pitch" was thrown. Major league my rear! That wasn't even a Pee Wee league speed pitch.

    And...anyone who knows what they're doing doesn't say "bullet proof", it's bullet resistant. The lame stuff at a bank teller window might stop a CCW round but a high power rifle will blow right through it.

    Please Elon, show us what happens when your funky looking truck gets shot with a serious firearm. Don

    Yuppie toolbags will be tripping over each other to be the first idiot to rock one of these at Starbucks.

    Elon is the king if distraction. Um Elon, why can’t you fulfill the promise of a $30k EV or make a profit at Tesla more than once every100 years? To which his response is,”Hey look, it’s Elvis!” Or an EV pickup or an autonomous semi or ..... .

    I hope so. I was getting pretty itchy about shorting the stock. It languished for a long time until they decided to take a more aggressive position on the reserves they were taking on autopilot revenues and presto more profit. The market took the bait hook line and sinker and the stock shot up.

    As the price approached historical resistance I was getting a pretty big short position ready, thinking the truck announcement would be that kicker to be my kicker on the short.

    DOH! I sure didn’t see that absurd reveal coming. Stock got pounded today. If one of the true believers comes in to save the stock, I still may get a shot. If not, c’est la vie. :)

    Shorting is tough with so many momentum traders lurking.

    Doncha think (if they were serious) they would have rehearsed the ball throwing stunt before hand without an audience?

    Negative, the reason why cars generally have tempered glass is so that when it breaks, people don't get slashed on the pieces.
    Mercedes had (or has, IDK) an option on some of their "S" class sedans with armored glass, which basically was windshield type safety glass on the sides.

    It looks like every future vehicle sketch from my old late 70’s Road and Track magazines. In fact it is a direct rip off of an old Lambo design. Outdated and stale. Lame.

    It’s a hell of a lot more “truck” than this abomination.

    I kind of like it.

    Reminds me if what people in Hollywood thought the future would look like in the 80s.

    I thought the cars I was drawing when I was 8 were terrible and not realistic. Turns out I was ahead of my time.

    Gee, why would you do that? I mean, you're only showing off a multi-million dollar investment to a few million people, so, what could go wrong?

    Looks like a couple of stealth fighters got together and had a truck..should be good to go on avoiding radar.

    Does it fly under the radar? :headscratch:
