It actually took me a while to see what you did there. This actually made the Cybertruck proportions better IMO.
The DeLorean offered a "racing stripe" as a dealer option:

Let’s hope Tesla has done their engineering homework on the Giga castings for the Cybertruck. A TX Model Y owner claims his front casting is suffering from fractures.

That would be a manufacturer defect and definitely be covered by the warranty. Not many TX Model Ys are out of warranty yet.

But Tesla has been making Model Ys with gigacastings for almost four years now at Fremont.

Not every car with a flaw in one of the castings is a warranty issue. It's only an issue if the flaw causes the casting to be too weak to perform properly. My best guess is the flaw was noticed before the casting went to general assembly and was pulled for Tesla engineers to look at it. If so, a real engineer, not a journalist, approved it.

Maybe the vehicle was in an accident or was used for hilltop jumping?

That photo does make it look like it could possibly be a stress fracture but earlier photos I saw looked like a casting flaw. Either way, I have seen no evidence of a problem, even if it turns out that one is found to be damaged or had a problem during casting.
