Tesla Cybertruck Reimagined as Sports Car
Posted on May 22, 2020 by Denis Gurskiy
Did you ever wonder what the design elements of the Tesla Cybertruck would look like translated into an El Camino-esque sports car? Well, wonder no more — one 3D modeler took the task upon himself and completely reimagined the look of the Cybertruck.
Khyzyl Saleem is a 26-year-old UK-based concept artist whose work you might already be familiar with if you played the newest Need for Speed Heat video game — he actually designed the Polestar 1 cover car. Saleem's latest artistic interpretation could be the CyberCamino you've always dreamed of (complete with a CyberCycle of course).
Describing his rationale for a Cybertruck redesign, Saleem explains, "Don’t get me wrong, I love what Elon is doing in this industry, truly breaking those boundaries and the original design is bonkers, I just wanted to add my own flavour to it." The artist was even nice enough to give us a timelapse of how he did it.
"I modeled the truck as my base first, and altered a few body lines slightly just to make it a bit more interesting... I added fenders that add a bit of curvature to the truck, but still tried to maintain the futuristic element to it. Bertone inspired, still the same size/scale as the original, just on the lowest height setting," says Saleem.
The result is a truly insane widebody slammed sports car that manages to look even more cyberpunk than the Cybertruck is — check out some Saleem's design renderings in the gallery below.
