Elon Musk biographer Walter Isaacson has shared an intriguing image showcasing early concept designs for the Cybertruck.

The image captures a moment during an early meeting about the Cybertruck, where Elon Musk can be seen engaged in conversation with Tesla's design chief, Franz von Holzhausen.

The left side of the image displays a series of concept images, offering a glimpse into the diverse ideas explored during the Cybertruck's early stages of creation. On the right, a mood board features images from iconic films such as Blade Runner 2049 and popular video games like Cyberpunk 2077.

Additionally, the mood board includes iconic vehicles from movies such as James Bond's Lotus Esprit 1 Series submarine car from "The Spy Who Loved Me," the futuristic DMC Delorean, and images from classic sci-fi films like "RoboCop" and "Tron," and more.

The biography on Musk, scheduled for release in September 2023, also recounts Musk's pivotal decision to construct the Cybertruck using stainless steel. This unconventional approach favored straight planes and sharp angles, reinforcing the vehicle's futuristic and edgy design.

“I want the future to look like the future,” Musk stated. “We’re not doing a traditional boring truck. We can always do that later. I want to build something that’s cool. Like, don’t resist me.”

Tesla officially announced the Cybertruck in 2019, with production initially planned for late 2021. Despite several delays, Tesla's Texas plant recently announced the production of the first Cybertruck, with delivery events planned later this year and mass production scheduled for 2024.
