NASA called and they want their Mars rover back, yes it's freakin' ugly and the interior is hideous with it's marble kitchen countertop dashboard, but it does have good numbers. It has excellent ground clearance, departure angle, approach angle, not to mention low end torque and the 0-60 etc... better than anything that is out there now and in the foreseeable future. It seems like nothing can compete with electric vehicles with their low end torque. The Tesla is obviously a prototype. It doesn't have seatbelts, side mirrors, and with that exterior are there crumple zones? It will change a lot in the next couple of years when it actually goes in to production. In my opinion they sure raised the bar we would be able to get factory spec vehicle with everything that you would need to go off-roading without any modifications if you can get past the look of the triangle on wheels. Competition is good. My question is do you all believe that the reveal of this cyber freak truck will cause truck manufacturer's to take notice, rethink future vehicles and step up their game to make upcoming vehicles (TRX I'm talking to you) even better and more competitive to electric vehicles? I don't believe that it would be in the best interest of truck companies to release upcoming versions of vehicles like Raptor and TRX with subpar specs that don't even compare to the cyber freak truck. Just my 2 cents. * disclaimer * I don't own any Teslas.
