Amphibious Tesla Cybertruck? Why not?

Elon Musk hints at making the Cybertruck amphibious and it is not clear if he’s actually kidding.

He mentioned the next Tesla Roadster would be fitted with a cold air thruster, it was hard to say whether he was joking, but this is actually happening.

Musk himself had confused people when he said Tesla was going to release a ‘fart app’ and that the Boring Company was going to sell a flamethrower, and it all happened.

Now Tesla’s CEO has puzzled people about a remark he made about this depiction of a Cybertruck used by 3D artist Slav Popovski as a boat:

From a Twitter post of the render, Musk commented: “I think we could make that work.”

Although the video doesn’t seem like something the Cybertruck can do, it isn’t too farfetched based on Musk’s previous comments.

A few years ago, the CEO said that after a Tesla Model S was spotted driving (or swimming) through a flooded tunnel, the Model S could almost be used as a boat-although the CEO made it clear that it was not recommended.

He said:

“We definitely don’t recommend this, but Model S floats well enough to turn it into a boat for short periods of time. Thrust via wheel rotation.”

With a sealed battery pack at the bottom and waterproof, the vehicle can still float for a couple of moments, but not quite like in the Cybertruck film.

Musk has for a while also had a fascination with amphibious vehicles.

The CEO purchased the Lotus Esprit amphibious model used in the 1977 James Bond movie ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ a few years ago.

He said later that Tesla was going to turn the model into a real amphibious electric vehicle thinking it was a while ago and it has yet to happen. Perhaps Musk has done it secretly, and he uses it to enter his villain lair underwater.
