Taking inspiration from it, a replica of the body of Tesla's highly-anticipated electric pickup truck with wood has been made, and Tesla fans can't seem to keep calm. Named as Plybertruck, this replica has been created by CJ Cromwell, said a report by Carscoops.

This replica has been made to compete in the Gambler 500 rally which is an 805 km navigation rally where the competitors’ vehicles have a limited purchase cost of $500. However, the competition does provide its participants with leniency to spend whatever they want on either modification or tuning the cars as per their likes after meeting the $500 cost cap. The car beneath the Plybertruck's wooden exterior is a first-generation Acura MDX, stated the report.

Though not electric like the Cybertruck, this wooden replica has successfully garnered netizens' attention. Comments such as impressive recreation and one going to the extent of saying that this wooden model might cost more than the real thing because of the high price of lumber do show the buzz that Plybertruck has created on various social media platforms.
