Mattel and Tesla have teamed up to create two remote-controlled toys based on Elon Musk’s crazy looking electric pickup. The 1/64-scale version will sell for 20 bucks, while the 1/10-scale version will go for $400, and even includes “cracked window” stickers. They’re only available in limited quantities, and will ship in December 2020.

Tiny Cybertruck

Tiny Cybertruck

It seems as if the primitive design of Tesla’s Cybertruck makes it fairly easy to replicate, so this one resourceful dad decided to build his kid a Cybertruck body for his electric go kart. Just for fun, he let the kid use it to tow his Mercedes-Benz R-Class MPV. It also does a mean J-turn.

Russian Cybertruck

Why wait until 2021 for Tesla to start shipping Cybertrucks, when you can just build your own? That’s what the guys from Russian car-hacking channel Garage 54 did. While their version of the primitive looking truck looks the part, we’re certain the formerly concrete-armored UAZ truck it’s built on isn’t very energy efficient.

The Tesla Triangulator

The guys at Nukazooka poke fun at the low poly look of the Tesla Cybertruck with this hilarious clip that imagines a pocket-sized gadget that could turn anything into a primitive and clunky version of itself. We wonder what would happen if you pointed it at LEGO’s Cybertruck.

Tesla Model 3 Pickup Truck

(PG-13: Language) EV maker Tesla is working on a pickup truck, but Simone Giertz doesn’t have the patience to wait for its release. Instead, she did what any enterprising maker with a massive YouTube following would do – she called in her friends to help carve up a Tesla Model 3 and make it into a ute, dubbed the “Truckla.”

Tesla + Honda = Teslonda

Tesla + Honda = Teslonda

Automotive madman Jimmy Built managed to cram the drive unit from a Tesla Model S and the battery pack from a Chevy Volt into an old Honda Accord. The result is a crazy lightweight car that can do 0-to-60 in about 2.7 sec, and sounds like a remote-controlled toy doing it.

Tesla Coil Rhapsody

Tesla Coil Rhapsody

There’s quite literally something electric in the air with this high voltage performance of Queen’s rock opera. Electronics wiz Fabrício H. Franzoli programmed a duo of solid state Tesla coils to “sing” a portion of the track. His take on Daft Punk is pretty awesome too.

Other than the fact that the vehicle isn’t fully-autonomous, we’re guessing Elon Musk would approve of Kaipotainment’s goofy video clip about a cat that drives a Tesla into space and encounters a strange and mystical figure.

Verne Troyer’s Tesla Model S

Verne Troyer’s Tesla Model S

Actor Verne Troyer bought himself a present from a charity auction this holiday season – a Tesla Model S. But rather than go for the 6-figure P100D with Ludicrous mode, he went for the right-sized Radio Flyer edition, which maxes out at 6 mph, but is still a proper EV.

From the factory, the Tesla Model S P100D can do 0-to-60 in 2.5s in Ludicrous mode. But this race-prepped version will do it in 2.0s flat, thanks to an 1100 lb. weight loss, a boost to 778hp, an aero body kit, and race suspension. The cars race in the new Electric GT series.
