The Tesla Cybertruck showed up at Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen’s alma mater, the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA.

According to the Reddit user LogicalHuman, Tesla’s uniquely-designed Cybertruck was present during the Art Center’s alumni show. The prototype was displayed along with other vehicles.

von Holzhausen was also present during the alumni show; he helped bring CEO Elon Musk’s vision of a never-before-seen pickup truck come to life.

The Cybertruck displayed during the Art Center’s alumni show appears to be the original protoype unveiled a few years ago before the pandemic. At the time, the origami-like design of Tesla’s first pickup truck received mixed reviews. Some people didn’t like the uniquely-shaped pickup truck, while others embraced its original design.

Either way, the Cybertruck turns heads and still seems to attract attention wherever it pops up.

Tesla is currently at the tooling stage of Cybertruck production at its gigafactory in Texas. Several Cybertruck bodies have already popped up at the Fremont Factory in California and Giga Texas. In early October, Teslarati discovered Tesla started preparing to build battery packs for the Cybertruck in a new manufacturing line at the Fremont Factory.
