The first Tesla Cybertruck to visit Nantucket rolled off the Steamship Authority ferry Thursday afternoon. It didn't take long to make an impression.

The vehicle with Connecticut plates was first spotted by people on Main Street, where it was parked directly on a crosswalk in front of Congdon & Coleman. But that was just the beginning.

A few hours later the truck reappeared, and this time it was stuck in the sand at Eel Point. The spectacle drew a small crowd before the $80,000 (starting price) vehicle was pulled out by the new "I Pull Out Beach Towing" service.

The operator - whose identity is unknown - was described as "super nice...Just a first-timer who made the standard mistakes."

Tesla was recently forced to recall nearly 4,000 Cybertrucks this week due to a defect with the accelerator causing it to get stuck when pressed, increasing the risk of crash. That covered all the Tesla Cybertrucks sold since the model went on sale last year, according to USA Today.

Could the truck's bizarre appearance Thursday on Nantucket been a planned stunt of some kind? Time will tell, and the Current plans to investigate. Stay tuned...
