MODERATOR EDIT: Thread's original name has been altered to reflect Tesla Inc's. revelation of pickup truck's nomenclature That's my take as well - I don't think the final design will be too far away from the teased first designs: They might also go with a more traditional styling and use the aerodynamics of the Model Y or Model X: I'm sure they'll come up with something clever to solve the turbulence caused by a traditional flatbed. But my guess is that Elon's still convinced about the Blade Runner design language. I see low chance of a 'traditional' truck design: Why block the driver's view with a traditional hood that used to host an ICE engine? What I'd love to see is a design close to this last image, but instead of a traditional hood in the front, a rounded front with panoramic glass running down in a futuristic but well-proportioned, visually pleasing way - more like a submarine than a truck. That's not very Blade Runner though.
