It looks like a prop from a cheap '70s science fiction movie.

Any other window would have broken as well, with much less force than was applied here. So not a fail for that.

Where it fails, for me, is looks.

It's just too weird and I don't expect it will sell very well. I could be wrong.

Yeah, the looks are... O_O

But Elon was touting how the windows were shatterproof, and they weren't.

I can't imagine being him at that moment when he realized his team had let him down while he was on stage. I can imagine the aftermath, though...

I want, regardless.

I would imagine there is an audience for this. Seems well suited to the jeep/offroad type markets.

Something I'd like to see is the crash testing. With the super rigid panels, the crumple engineering could be quite interesting. Maybe instead of crumpling, it just folds on the seams?

The truck/jeep/offroad people are into a certain, established, style and look. Some/many are more into the style/look than they are into the actual offroading or useing a truck as a truck.

Cybertruck doesn't fit the mold for the established style, I don't think they're going to go for it.

No it's not.

With another oil energy crisis coming soon, good gas mileage is important.

Isn't it an electric drive vehicle?


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Yes.

Someone is either trolling or just not paying attention.
