An incredible concept in November 2019 was unveiled by Tesla CEO Elon Musk: a bulletproof, cyberpunk-inspired electric vehicle. He has called it his futuristic road-legal tank and dubbed it the Tesla Cybertruck. The styling—straight from SciFi movies from the 1980s—drew a lot of criticism. But as many supporters as haters had the polarizing vehicle.
If it is to thrive, automotive enthusiasts must champion automotive culture. Many future vehicles will be shaped by electric drivetrains and autopilot. But the future could still be enjoyable. Exhilarating sports cars, fun traditions, and even this dystopian juggernaut—the Cybertruck—will still have a place in the sector.
