Tesla is taking $100 refundable deposits, if you want to reserve one. Allegedly, they'll start building them in 2021, which is when you'll be able to complete your configuration. Deliveries should start in 2022.

That's what happens when you let your long lost brother design a car.

It's a good thing that Teslas self combust. Saves the trouble of actually doing work to burn that abomination. I thought the Pontiac Aztec, or perhaps the AMC Gremlin were the ugliest vehicles ever. It appears we have a new challenger.

Why change. The rest of his cars are ugly so may as well make the truck ugly to.

Sort of appropriate I guess. The original Bladerunner was set in 2019.

To quote Kramer, "Look away, I'm hideous".

And the bullet proof glass. So, no one tested it before the unveiling. Dumbass'.

I'd bet a dollar they tested it before the unveiling. They set up microscopic cracks from the "in house" testing and when they hit it again for the unveiling, it failed.

A local company makes some of the windows for the stealth fighters and bombers. They test X numbers of pieces out of the lot but any piece tested is NOT shipped for use and it is stressed by the impact.
