I find this quote from the site to be very confusing:


Friction tends to increase wear so how does increased friction work with reduced wear?
Friction also tends to reduce smooth sliding so how does increased friction allow for smooth or sliding surface?

I think they're just listing the different techniques they can employ.

After 4-5 years the Cybertruck’s SS exterior will show everyday wear and tear battle scars.

A scrape from an errant shopping cart, minor damage from some A-hole backing into your car at a shopping mall, etc.

My 1981 DeLorean looks brand-new.

Clearly you are not wearing or tearing enough.... Or maybe you just time jumped here and skipped all the wear and tear. Though the DeLorean did have a penchant for crashing post time jump.

Apologies if you've been asked this before, but do you know if there's any difference between the stainless steel used in the CT vs the DeLorean?

The stainless steel used for the Cybertruck is borrowed from SpaceX and is an unknown formulation.

Unknown formulation but we do know that the formulation was done post DeLorean. So to answer the question from @CyberSleuth directly, I can for certain say that yes, I know that there is certainly a difference between the stainless steel used in the CT vs the DeLorean.

Now, as for what exactly the differences are.... Currently that seems to be a tightly held secret on the CT side. I'm sure that with enough research one could determine what exactly the stainless steel is on the DeLorean. At least with some degree of certainty. I'm not sure Tesla (or more probably SpaceX) will ever willingly let the cat out of the bag as to what is being used on the CT.

Anybody, go borrow a spectrometer and scan the CT

A spectrometer will identify the chemical elements comprising the alloy and their proportions, but nothing more. It cannot determine the alloy's bulk physical structure such as its crystalline arrangements or non-bulk characteristics such as surface hardness that can result from annealing or cold forming.

Those material structures and other characteristics are critical to the performance of the raw stock. The final, formed parts made from that stock may be slightly different still, because of the forming processes like bending or stamping.
