PETERS – Design of the Tesla Cybertruck is not the most questionable part

HERE’S A CONTROVERSIAL OPINION — I don’t hate the Tesla truck. At least, not to look at.

People are losing their heads over the radical design presented by CEO Elon Musk last week, but radically-designed vehicles have always made people lose their heads.

Consider in 1985, when Ford unveiled the Taurus.

The rounded design was a massive departure from the boxy sedans that had been the standard since the 1960s.

Within a couple of years, however, it had proven to be a massive hit.

  1. It is not just ugly, it is hideous, just like the Taurus was. Which is difficult to understand because the rest of Telsa designs are awesome.
