Back to the Future Easter Egg Found While Analyzing Cybertruck Drag

The folks over at Tesmanian noticed a funny little coincidence:

Justin W. Martin, who designs and engineers flying machines, may have found a little Easter Egg for those who wanted to test the aerodynamics of the Cybertruck. According to the engineer, when the all-electric pickup truck travels as 65 mph, the local velocity over the peak on the roof of the car is precisely 88mph. Back to the Future fans will recognize the 88mph from the movie as the speed needed to activate the flux capacitor and time travel.

Wouldn’t surprise me at all if this was done 100% intentionally.

  1. Does 65 mph has any special significance? I mean, the airflow would obviously reach 88 mph at *some* travel speed — so why should it matter that it does at 65 mph in particular?…
