Twitter account "F the Pump" shared this photo June 25 of the Cybertruck prototype that appeared at the Petersen Automotive Museum.

The Tesla Cybertruck appeared to have stolen the show at the inaugural Electrified Cars & Coffee meet June 25 at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. The all-electric pickup truck, which looked production ready, was driven to the event by Tesla Chief Designer Franz von Holzhausen.

Videos and photos of the highly-anticipated truck at the Petersen Museum were shared on social media platforms June 25.

As noted by the Petersen Museum, von Holzhausen was a special guest at the meet, as well as the host for the “first EV-only Cruise-In of the Petersen.”

Photos and videos from the event suggest the Cybertruck brought to the Petersen Museum may have been a production candidate. The fit and finish of the vehicle was notably refined, and its interior looked fully built. A number of EV enthusiasts observed the Cybertruck seemed to have ventilated seats.

Other details of the Cybertruck stood out. Its cameras were observed to have a red tint, suggesting the vehicle was equipped with Tesla’s Hardware 4 computer. A camera placed on the front bumper also had a slot above it, possibly as a way to wash the sensor in the event it gets caked with dirt or mud.

The Cybertruck’s bed, or “vault,” appeared to have been changed from its initial iteration. A slot close to the tailgate suggested the Cybertruck will have outlets in its bed, though the outlets themselves were not present in the vehicle. And unlike the original prototype from late 2019, the Cybertruck at the Petersen Museum featured a charge port on its rear fender.

Much like the original Cybertruck prototype, however, the vehicle brought to the Petersen Museum featured a charge port with a cool Easter egg---a lighted Cybertruck logo on top of the pickup truck’s NACS port instead of the traditional Tesla logo.
