Everything the Cybertruck looks like, according to the internet
Elon Musk revealed the Cybertruck, Tesla’s handsome new machine, in all its angular glory. It’s a very cool car, but that doesn’t mean the internet isn’t going to poke fun at how utterly weird it looks. If you can count on Twitter and Reddit for nothing else, you can count on it for that.

My other colleague Napier Lopez compared it to the Batmobile, also apt. I’d say it looks a bit like Back to the Future‘s Delorean.
But of course the internet pulled out all the stops, posting photoshop jobs and side-by-side comparisons for just about every futuristic fictional car under the sun. This Total Recall tweet is one of my favorites:
