A growing number of Tesla fans are growing impatient as to when Elon Musk will finally unveil his company's fabled, secretive pickup. One of them, who happened to be an inventor of sorts, decided she didn't want to wait any longer and built one herself.

Robotics enthusiast Simone Giertz bought a brand-new Model 3 and converted it into a pickup by carving out the backseat and trunk. The year-long process was documented in a video she shared, which includes the talents of a Tesla rebuild specialist, mechanic, and designer.

Giertz even shot a fake commercial for the makeshift pickup, which she has dubbed "TRUCKLA."

In the video, Giertz challenges Tesla founder Elon Musk to make the Tesla pickup truck, a long-awaited fantasy item of many Tesla devotees. Coincidentally, Musk announced plans for the Tesla pickup truck at the company's shareholders meeting. The inventor said the vehicle would have a "cyberpunk design" and look like it hailed from a "sci-fi" movie. But unlike Giertz's "Truckla," it won't be a labor of love.
I find this seriously f'in awesome! Not normally a fan of those kinds of body styles after seeing them with Subaru and Pontiac but this is still pretty cool. Good for her for having the money and resources to pull it off.
The hideousness of that vehicle will haunt my dreams.

Not of fan of the body either, especially short/micro beds, but I do think it was cool she was able to find someone with the skills to adapt a unique chassis to achieve her goals. Although I just remembered some of those unusual posts at [H] with the eastern European electric modded cars. You know, the ones that look like an old rambler meets a box.
