Someone named Anonymous posted this pic on a social media site. I managed too grab it before it disappeared. He must have pulled it because I went to comment and it showed a "this is no longer available" page. Please take down if not allowed.

Partial rear castings, no front castings (?) - but good shot of the firewall forward of cab
But aren't the presence of wheel wells part of the castings? I think they're present on both the front and rear. If not, what else is missing that makes up the casting?

You’re right - fronts are there! My bad eyes (and so the question mark) 🤣

It sure looks like the whole left side and right sides are single castings. Similar shape, but a fair bit different from the earlier prototype. I was thinking it was a big casting for the bottom and the 2 sail pillars were attached to the top, but these photos make me question that.

The numbered support beam in the photo shows us where this was taken within the factory.

Will y'all stop it with the "exoskeleton" references?!? They're meaningless!!! Every car without a cross braced roll cage can be called "exoskeleton". Anything that Tesla produces can be argued to fit the loose definition of exoskeleton. There is no legal definition of the term in relation to automobiles that can be referenced to declare that a unibody, or stamped metal and castings covered with non-structural metal, or even body on frame construction is inconsistent with Elon's comment. So long as it doesn't have bones on the inside covered with tendons, ligaments, muscle and skin, exoskeleton fits. 🙄
