We’d pay money to see this version of the Cybertruck on Autopilot

The Tesla Cybertruck is, without question, one of the most polarizing vehicles in recent memory. It doesn’t abide by traditional design norms of a pickup truck, and yet, it’s the audacity in Tesla’s design that has kept the Cybertruck in the headlines.

Tesla got us talking about the Cybertruck more than most vehicles, and, at least to a select few, it jump-started enough creative juices that we get to see different renderings and “interpretations” of Tesla’s upcoming all-electric. One of these interpretations comes to us by way of automotive 3D concept artist Shubbak 3D.

Is this the Tesla Cybertruck’s destiny?

It’s hard to say if the Tesla Cybertruck will evolve into an all-electric monster truck, but we can dream, right? For now, though, we can marvel at this piece of work created by Shubbak 3D.

For this who aren’t familiar, Shubbak 3D is a company that specializes in creating 3D models of all sorts of products. Whether it’s food, furniture, architecture, or in this case, vehicles, the Chicago-based integrated design firm has a history of creating automotive renderings.

In this instance, Shubbak 3D reinvented the Tesla Cybertruck in a very convincing fashion. Perhaps the Cybertruck’s design as a pickup is polarizing because it’s not supposed to look like a pickup truck. The overall design does look better with all the traditional lifted components that we normally see in monster trucks. From the high suspension to the enormous wheels to the unmistakable Cybertruck aesthetic, this rendering gives us a look at an alternate presentation of Tesla’s all-electric super truck.

Will it function as intended?

From a visual standpoint, the thing comes together more naturally than the Cybertruck’s actual design. From a functional standpoint, it’s unclear exactly how many batteries Tesla would need to power such a massive marauder. More to that, what’s the cost of actually building one?

To that end, all-electric monster trucks aren’t figments of imaginations, at least for those who remember the ODYSSEY Battery BIGFOOT No. 20 Monster Truck that was unveiled in 2012. The ODYSSEY rarely makes an appearance the days, but when it was unveiled, it silenced many critics who thought it was a complete sham by running 20 minutes straight and leaving a trail of crushed cars in its wake.

I don’t think that Tesla’s prepared to go that route with the Cybertruck, but in the event that Elon Musk wants to flex his ego one more time, he already has a design peg to tap into.

Shubbak 3D’s Tesla (Monster) Cybertruck rendering is what the Cybertruck should have looked like from the beginning. It’s not too late, though. Let’s hope that this rendering somehow comes to life in the future — in one form or another.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
