Tesla’s Cyberpunk Truck
Tesla’s visionary, weed-toking head honcho, Elon Musk, just took to Twitter to tease a futuristic new truck inspired by ‘Blade Runner.’ It’s fucking rad!
The Model Y crossover is the futuristic-looking, cyberpunk proto with pretty ambient lighting and a heavy dash of dystopian verve. The hybrid hulk comes in a pickup truck and lorry variant as well, colliding KITT from Knight Rider with various form-factors from ‘Blade Runner.’ (Grimes would look glam in this bleedng-edge beast zooming around Bel Air. ) The aesthetic is fierce and futuristic, but we can’t help being reminded of Benjamin Graham’s famous quote: “In the short run, the market is a voting machine, but in the long run it is a weighing machine.”
The electric-car maker’s stock fell by 5% to close at $275.43 a share yesterday, further straining shares that are now down by -17.2% and have lost almost $10 billion in market value so far this year. The company, which is currently valued at $47.6 billion, faces breakneck competition and mounting pressure on profit margins as it tries to lower prices on its lineup of all-electric and autonomous vehicles.
Considering Tesla’s deteriorating financial position in the face of cratering demand, massive mismanagement, and continued disarray in its manufacturing and logistics operations, Elon Musk needs to mainline some Adderall and focus on making Tesla viable before the whole taxpayer-funded science project buckles under its insanely heavy debt load. But we still love the design direction. Listen to an excellent podcast on Tesla/Elon Musk at Hidden Forces here. Topics include Elon’s ‘decadent’ debt-driven lifestyle, his personal environmental footprint (he commutes via Gulfstream to work every few days) and all the contingent liabilities he has racked up for Tesla, The Boring Co., Neuralink, etc… Shit cray!
