It might soon be time to add another accolade to Kanye West’s artistic catalog.
The man with 21 Grammy wins and a multi-billion dollar valuation for his Yeezy collaborations, is potentially looking at making a car.
DONDA, West’s content company known for collaborating on projects across various fields like film, design, as well as fashion, named noted sneaker designer Steven Smith as the head of “Donda Industrial Design.”
Now one of the products highlighted in the release naming Smith as head of industrial design is the “Donda Foam Vehicle.” The image also reads: Conceptualized, Designed, Manufactured in the United States, Amen.
Showing just a silhouette of the vehicle from the passenger side, the image depicts something that looks like a cross between the Dark Knight era Batmobile, and some sort of futuristic ATV. Massive tires both front and back bookend the vehicle, which feature a wraparound type of windshield up front.
Is it made of “foam,” or does it even exist? It’s hard to say with the limited info given. Whether it can actually get made is another story, though a few publications note Tesla’s (TSLA) Elon Musk and West are friends, and the speculation is Tesla could make the vehicle for DONDA.
Note that this is very loose speculation, and likely just more fun being had by car lovers, sneaker heads, and streetwear fans.
West’s millions of followers and the equally fervent Tesla community will have to wait to hear more about whether a Donda Foam Vehicle will be rolling off a Tesla assembly line in the years ahead.
