For about $1,000 a day, in either San Jose, California, or Austin, you can test drive early versions of the Cybertruck.

A listing in Texas, which appears to be from a Tesla employee, lists a Foundation Series Tesla for $1,069 per day. The listing promises that any feedback provided after your rental will be shared directly with the Tesla employees working on the Cybertruck.

It's worth noting that off-roading is restricted by both Turo and the renter in this case.

A second listing in San Jose is for a first-edition Cyberbeast model. This rental has been reduced from $1,000 a day to $950 a day, and you can pay $30 dollars extra to change the pickup location to San Francisco.

While Tesla hasn't yet broken out Cybertruck sales for the fourth quarter, it appears the launch has moved slowly since about a dozen of the electric trucks were delivered to the first owners at a November event. Tesla CEO Elon Musk warned of this bottleneck early on, citing the high complexity of production for the Cybertruck.

There has already been chatter among Cybertruck fans online about renting out Cybertrucks on Turo, with one posting their experience on TikTok earlier this month.

The opportunity to test drive a Tesla may be helpful for some order-holders after the final reveal of the truck left some feeling let down.

As the Foundation series goes out to early reservation holders, many longtime Cybertruck order-holders are now on the fence about going through with their purchase, particularly after the truck ended up being more expensive than initially promised.
