Tesla Makes an Announcement...

It seems that Elon Musk sees himself as a "Pickup Truck Man..."
What do you think of the artist's rendition of his dream?

Tesla has had a pickup truck in the plans for quite some time now.
Roadster
Model S
Model X
Model E (er 3) -- Ford has "Model E" trademarked so they went with 3
Model Y -- Small SUV (like the X but in the 3's size)
Pickup
Semi

True, and I can't really picture this by a campfire either:

This looks pretty sharp, however:

Don't get me wrong: I like what he's doing!
That truck looks as if it would be happiest in a Shopping Mall parking lot.

I think they settle that one already. He had to pay like 20 million in fines and I thing tesla had to pay the same in fines?

Elon is awesome. I hope he can help Telsa go far and last for 50+ years!

Yeah, this guy stole ALL of my dream jobs.

Start a company that make you billions of dollars: Check.

Build rockets to go into space: Check.

Build up a new car company unlike anything we have see and with some really fast cars: Check.

Buy a solar company and make some cool solar shingles that everyone will want in a few years and create a big battery to store this power: Check.

What else can we add to my dream job list?

Has he made a nickel of profit yet or is he still relying on taxpayer handouts?

Style and OPM...
Hope he pulls it all off and makes things for a profit. Certainly he has a vision.

I've machined parts for Tesla Motors and know how their engineers work. I'll withhold judgement until I see more than 3d renders of his truck.

Yeah he finally made money this last quarter. But I still think Tesla is a couple of years away before they are consistantly profitable.

If they keep building stuff people want AND they are the best on the market.... the money will follow by the truck loads (IMO).

I like the looks of the WorkHorse truck better, and it will have a BMW engine running a generator to extend range.
