A Bosnian entrepreneur who likes both Ford and Tesla has reportedly decided to build a similar car of his own because Tesla’s Cybertruck electric pickup has been delayed. Igor Krezic’s Stark Solutions spent eight months with IT experts and engineers dismantling a Ford Raptor F-150 and reassembling it into a fuel pickup truck that looked like Cybertruck.
Mario Coric, the company’s manager, said the car first raised concerns when it hit the road in the southern Bosnian city of Mostar.

“Everyone was watching, and half of them thought we made a tank because people didn’t know what Cybertruck was. One girl also stopped to ask Tesla Cybertruck if it was made here. He said.
Krezik declined to comment.
Although the car is not exactly the same as Cybertruck’s prototype, it captures its essence.
“The boss wants us to blend the opposite of Ford and Cybertruck, because he’s both a Fan of Tesla and a Fan of Ford. So we put the two into one. He said, “This car uses gasoline, and Tesla is an electric car.” We try to mimic the look, but the size doesn’t match Cybertruck. “
Neither Tesla or Ford immediately responded.
Mr Coric said Star Solutions was currently trying to put the pickup on the road so it could be officially on the road, but had encountered problems because Bosnian law prohibited the appearance of Cybertruck’s angular car.
Musk said in July that Tesla plans to build a $1.1 billion Cyberruck plant near Austin, Texas.
Cybertruck, which starts at $39,000 and looks like a military vehicle, is targeting the most lucrative pickup business in the U.S.
