The first picture I've seen of the Cybertruck beta prototype's front end has just come into my possession, and let me tell you, it's quite a sight to behold. When you look at this truck from a variety of angles, it seems to paint a very different picture of its dimensions and contours in your mind.
As a result, I've come to dissect what I can make out in this photograph.
Now, I am aware that Elon is free to change his mind at any point between now and production about the specifics of the project. But for the time being, let's just examine the information that we have.

To begin, I discovered that there were DT (daytime) running lights hidden under the fake grille. It's intriguing that they're positioned where the headlights would be but aren't part of the light bar itself. And what exactly is the deal with that strange rectangle at the very bottom? Is a snowplow attachment going to be made available for the Cybertruck?
The panel gap that can be seen along the left and right corners of the front appears to be larger compared to earlier iterations. It has occurred to me that this might imply that the aperture for the trunk will stretch all the way down to the bottom of the grille.
One of my hopes is that the spacious area at the very top will have room for a light bar. We are all aware that Elon discussed it at some point in the past. Also, keep in mind that the UI leak indicated a clearance of 20 inches, which is fantastic and aligns with what Elon said about wanting to expand the suspension travel even further.
Additionally, the cut lines on the side of the front appear to have been derived from the styling of the F150's trunk. The fact that the front of the vehicle will open together with the hood is a positive development, given that Ford's strategy has been demonstrated to be the most effective thus far.
My biggest concern continues to be about the wiper because it just looks goofy. My hope is that they will have a solution for that goofyness before production begins.
In addition to that, I'm willing to guess that the line in the glass that runs along the passenger side roof has something to do with satellite internet connectivity. Starlink RV, anyone?
