Elon Musk has not yet responded to the challenge, but the pinned tweet at the top of his Twitter account is a photo of the Cybertruck with the caption: "Better truck than an F-150, faster than a Porsche 911".
All-electric designs have helped every Tesla vehicle stand out from its competition, but Tesla's Cybertruck is unconventional even by Tesla's standards.
The new pickup is expected to begin production in about two years.
So I proceeded to try to turn the Cybertruck into a Cybersedan and the result looks like a post-apocalyptic take on a classic Aston Martin Lagonda sedan, reimagined in the not too distant future.
Meanwhile, the Cybertruck prototype has larger tires with bigger contact patches and could be equipped with all-wheel drive, more powerful electric motors and more weight than the F-150, although Tesla hasn't released the exact specifications of the vehicle used in the clip.
This initial popularity is impressive considering that the first Cybertrucks will only be put into commercial production in late 2021, with the high-end editions only scheduled for manufacturing in 2022. For the more budget conscious, Tesla will also be offering a dual-motor AWD model, with a 483km range, as well as a rear-driven single-motor variant that achieves a more humble 400km range. To preorder SUV Model Y, for instance, customers had to provide a $2,500 deposit.
