The Tesla Cybertruck has proven very popular across the globe. However, since it hasn't come to market yet, and it's been delayed a few times, people have made their own versions of the truck. In addition, many companies are banking on the Cybertruck's upcoming success, and have already started offering unique aftermarket products for the stainless-steel electric behemoth.
A company that appears to be named Cybercat shared the following information with us, and initially, we didn't think it was real. To be honest, it almost seemed as though Cybercat was mocking other aftermarket companies, and creating this hypothetical product and website as a joke. The company's email reads:
"And you thought a collapsing truck camper for the Cybertruck was too out there…"
"Your Cybertruck has more versatility than you ever imagined. With its large battery, tough construction, and adaptive air suspension, the Cybertruck is just a few components away from transforming into a capable all-electric amphibious watercraft. Cybertruck + CATAMARAN => Cybercat TM."
Yes, it's an aftermarket kit that can convert your Tesla Cybertruck into a high-performance amphibious catamaran. And, yes, it appears to be real, at least in concept form, as there's a patent for it, and you can already place a reservation for it on the company's website.
The company is offering both the Cybercat and Cyberfoil. The Cybercat uses a few components to transform the electric pickup truck into a catamaran. The Cyberfoil takes it a step further by adding hydrofoils "to maximise efficiency on the water and unleash industry leading performance for all-electric watercraft."
The company's website says the Cybercat starting price ranges from $22,900 to $32,900 (approx. £16,900 to £24,200). It also notes that the price varies based on the number of 50 kW motors selected. You can choose up to five motors for a total output of 335 bhp.
According to the website, Cybercat specs are as follows:
25+ mph (22+ knots)
115+ mi. at 6 mph (100+ NM at 5 knots)
50+ mi. at 15 mph (44+ NM at 13 knots)
The website goes on to reveal wild ideas about how you might use the Cybercat to create a Cyber Island with other Tesla Cybertruck-owning family and friends. You could also add a pop-up camper and use the Cybercat as a boathouse.
You should absolutely check out the Cybercat website to see this crazy contraption in all of its glory. Sure, there's no telling whether something like this could ever really come to market, but it's interesting to consider.
