If Raphael Zammitt was completely honest, his first reaction was horror when someone sent him a photo of Tesla's new Cybertruck. "I said,'What the hell! What did Tesla do?" "What did you do?"
Zameet is more than just a neutral observer. He is the director of the MFA Transportation Design Program at Detroit's Creative Studies College and ..
has been involved in automotive design for a quarter of a century. And Cybertruck is "extreme" for that.
“It literally breaks all the rules we told our students,” says Zamito. "That's what we tell them not to do." No, this track is not a designer track.
Example: Look at the top of the vehicle and its thinness. Take a look at the slender, slender D-pillars on the truck and the sloping rear pillars that support the roof.
Based on all the triangles involved, there is no reason to think that the top of the track is weak.
But the thinness seems so. Zamiet and other car designers say they are teaching students how to add something small to make the vehicle look stable and sturdy, even if it doesn't have much of an impact on engineering.
Yes, it's an uncompromising vehicle design. So the first reaction to a truck that appeared to be carrying a corpse in
an apocalyptic video game was a collective "watt". These design decisions are dramatically different from other products that Tesla has existed for decades.
Even the cicadas, which were launched two years ago and will roll off the assembly line next year, are made up of elegant curves.
