Perfect. In about 3 months (based on order number) I should be ready for the impending apocalypse. Not sure if that will be soon enough though.

You can also see that they just caught the front edge of the quarter panel with no penetration. Thick stuff!

Notice they didn’t shoot at the front fender. You can draw your own conclusion.

Only the doors are bullet proof. Always been the case.
That is not true. Elon very clearly said at the unveling that 'we were able to make the skin out of thick ultra-hard stainless steel'. He did not say that the doors are made of thick ultra-hard stainless steel:



It was later shared that the thickness he referred to was 3 mm. This was widely shared. There have been any number of interviews, even by Franz this year, where they continued to say the same things about the skin and formability.

If they have made the rest of the vehicle with thinner stainless, or another grade, then they could have used a stamping press but they have 'never' said that they could use a stamping press to form any part of the skin.

If this is an NHSTA test, no wonder it's voluntary...

i dont think that's what @greggertruck is saying

what you quoted above is said in one part of the presentation

in a *Different* part of the presentation he talks only about the doors, and demonstrate only the doors, when discussing it being bulletproof (or withstanding the sledgehammer)

meanwhile, only the doors are in the Tesla patent for 'exoskeleton'

put differently, based on info presented in the unveil, it has been at best *indeterminate* as to whether they were making claims about only the door and not the rest of the SS

what has been a mistake are people who interpreted or assumed that the discussion was not only determinate, but in the direction of describing the entire vehicle


MEANWHILE: NOTICE here that they've intentionally attempted to keep the spray within the door area

there's no other, good, reason for them to have not also shot at the rear quarter panel (at least)

one or two missed, and hit the edge of the rear QP - but that would also be the area of the rear QP where there is NOT a void behind the panel (so it's resistance there isn't attributable solely to the QP metal)

I hope that we will not be tested by the stupid little thugs who would like to test the veracity of what is announced in this context, or even worse test ammunition to see what calibers of bullets could perforate the armor of the CT!! !!!! :unsure: 🤙

Per Elon Musk:

"We emptied the entire drum magazine of a Tommy gun into the driver door Al Capone style. No bullets penetrated into the passenger compartment."
