    Just because you don't like it doesn't mean others can't like it....

    The cybertruck looks to be built for utility rather than style (that stainless steel body apparently drove the design since it is too thick and rigid to be stamped with traditional stamping machines) that gives it the durability demonstrated on stage (the demo that didn't fail). It's clearly not meant for the person who wants to overcompensate with a $80k lifted diesel with chrome wheels and a smokestack....

    If Elon put a big ol' thick black smoke generator option on the Cybertruck he might get those guys to pony up a $100 "pre-order deposit" too.

    Ford gave us a prequel of slapping a badge on a vehicle that is an insult to enthusiasts. Savagegeese describes it extremely well.

    I had a dream last night that I was trying to convince someone at Ford to tell Bill Ford to not call the Mach E a Mustang.

    I am still very upset about this.

    The Mopar boys have to be laughing about this...if they know about it.

    If they don’t remove the Mustang name, then I just hope if fails.

    At this point they may as well go ahead and rename it the Mustang Edge ST. That's about how meaningful any of Ford's brands are at this point.

    And you're right. We're going to see exactly this same kind of tepid review of the Mach E when it comes out. By then the media will be completely saturated with the Model Y and Ford's offering looks set to come up short of it in every measurement.

    Watching football today and seeing the continuous stream of SUVs that go by as I fast forward through commercials reminded me again of how ridiculous it is that Ford would do this or that anyone would go along with it. They all look alike and pasting Mustang fascias on isn't going to save this one from disappearing into the crowd with all the rest.

    Since there's commercials in here, remember when Ford really resonated with their heritage and their core audience versus the short-term profit mindset they and sadly other manufacturers have now? These commercials while dated now were groundbreaking in their time and really struck hard beyond a marketing perspective (they have to be watched externally on youtube).

    Exactly! At first I said whoa an actual mustang commercial. Guess they're finally gonna start competing against dodge with ads. Boy was I wrong.

    Exactly - this is what I’m saying also...

    I think Musk did that as a total stunt.... they built an f’d up looking wild and crazy ass Mad Max vehicle to spoof the entire unveiling event - and not only to do that, but to have it mocked up so the “bullet proof” windows would break (on purpose) then act all like “OMG that wasn’t supposed to happen”.

    The whole thing was publicity ruse to drawn attention to Tesla - as well as the fake “orders”....

    How people can think that whole thing was not planned, at all, have their heads stuck up their asses...

    What the hell do they have to laugh about? their beloved Charger is a 4 door sedan. Talk about disrespecting your heritage.

    Looking at a few forums, yes, it's getting laughed at and bashed HARD, but is also concerning to both the Dodge and Chevy guys. I think we all can agree that the pony/muscle cars are in danger of even existing for a host of reasons. I think a lot of guys accept and in some cases welcome hybrid and/or EV pony/muscle cars. But in no way do we want them to go away completely. The more options for pony/muscle cars, the better. Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger/Charger need to be at least available to purchase for many of us. That is what is most concerning here. There have been ZERO announcements nor leaks about the next gen of any pony car (except the rumors about Camaro discussed earlier in this thread, and those rumors are just that it won't exist on the alpha2 chassis and MIGHT exist on the VSS-R platform). Also, almost NO pony/muscle car guy wants these cars' names to be used on vehicles that represent the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of what that have become iconic for. Ford not only pissed off most Mustang owners, but other enthusiasts as well. Come on man, the Mach-E is a 4 door CUV, it's a fricking Honda CRV with the Mustang slapped on it. It's insulting.

    Neither of them seemed surprised when the glass broke.

    That EV truck is a joke. The designed is flawed and too contrived. Nothing in nature has angles like that and unless you are trying to avoid radar, then stealth design doesn't do much for a truck.

    Sheer surfaces are horrible for aero and Elon designed that for Wannabee's. Not because they spent million in a wind tunnel.
