Tesla’s Cybertruck is hard to forget.

In late 2019, Elon Musk took the stage to unveil his company’s latest design, a futuristic, boxy EV truck described by observers as a “large metallic trapezoid.”

In a now infamous demo of how “breakproof” the Cybertruck’s windows were, an engineer threw a metal ball at the glass, which Musk had described as bulletproof, causing it to unexpectedly shatter.

But Cybertruck’s moment in the sun didn’t end there, and since then the company has reportedly netted about a million pre-orders for the model, production of which was originally planned for this year.

Last month, Musk confirmed that the production goal for the pickup needed to be modified, saying that it won’t actually go into production until late 2022, with volume ramping up in 2023. But since then, Tesla has quietly made some other changes on its website that have the industry speculating that the Cybertruck might be facing further delays… and leaving some questioning whether we’ll ever see it at all.
