TRUCKLA: The World's First Tesla Pickup Truck

Simone Giertz has an angle grinder and a welder, and she's not afraid to use them. Giertz got tired of waiting for Tesla to launch its electric pickup truck, so she made her own. Yes, the "queen of shitty robots" took a Tesla  model 3 and cut the body up to accommodate a truck bed. She calls the resulting vehicle "Truckla." The ad above says it's available nowhere, but you can find one in Giertz's driveway. She's come a long way since she bought her first car, Cheese Louise. The much longer video showing how she built Truckla is at Neatorama. (via Metafilter)

Had us fooled. We were getting ready to assess our ability to purchase one. Hopefully Tesla will take a hint and make it a reality.

Apparently Tesla has plans for one, but they say it will be years from now.
