Four years ago, Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, unveiled the Cybertruck. It was a memorable moment, but not for the reasons Musk intended. While proudly showcasing the car’s supposedly ‘shatterproof’ windows during a live demo, one of them unexpectedly shattered, creating an awkward moment that we won’t soon forget.

However, he ingeniously transformed it from its initially tumultuous debut, resulting in an astonishing two million orders for the Cybertruck.

On November 30th, the eagerly anticipated car will finally be in the hands of its first customers. Prior to its official release, Tesla’s chief designer, Franz von Holzhausen, personally brought his own Cybertruck to a ‘Cars & Coffee’ gathering.

TikToker @dsgolson captured some close-up shots of the car, and it’s safe to say that both he and many others found its build quality to be underwhelming.

“Please enjoy these detail shots I took of the Cybertruck that Tesla’s chief designer brought to cars and coffee today,” he captioned the series of snaps shared to TikTok.

The initial photo showcases a sleek, all-black Cybertruck resting in a parking spot – evoking a striking resemblance to a vehicle that could have been plucked right out of a Batman film.

Although magnificent from a distance, upon closer inspection, a few observers noticed minor setbacks.

Numerous photographs clearly revealed gaps in the car’s panels at various locations, giving it an unmistakably unfinished appearance.

It is worth noting that the vehicle showcased here may not necessarily reflect the exact models that car enthusiasts will be able to acquire by the end of the month. However, this minor detail hasn’t deterred individuals from expressing their opinions on the car’s quality in the comments section.

“How is it that Tesla can’t even get quality control on something that’s not even in production yet?” questioned one person.

“It makes the Nissan Cube look like a work of art,” said another.

A third went on to add: “I really have no idea how their panel gaps are this bad. Like this isn’t a mass produced unit.”

“Is this a college senior design project?” wrote another.

However, some contended that the imperfections were evidence that the Cybertruck isn’t produced in large quantities – an aspect they deemed favorable.

“Hey little imperfections means it’s handmade. This is a luxury product guys fr!!” penned one TikToker.

“Personally I love the way it looks,” said another person who defended the truck.

Perhaps, the existence of these gaps is intentional.
