      "Cybertruck design influenced partly by The Spy Who Loved Me"



      Looks like the renders of a wedge shape are going to be somewhat accurate. Also a rumor that the steering wheel will be in the center a la McLaren F1. Pretty crazy how nothing has really leaked about this thing.

      Vapor can leak from a vessel, but there are no leaks when the vessel is vaporware.

      Tesla's instagram tagline thing now says "automotive, aircraft, & boat" on the app. Rumor that there's a "boat mode" on the pickup lol. Might just be trolling because of the "Spy who Loved Me" inspiration, but you never know.

      Here is a link to the livestream. You can just enter in bogus info.

      https://livestream.tesla.com/

      Last time they also had a livestream on YouTube, but no link yet.

      This has to be a joke. That thing is hideous. They’ll sell at least three of these.
