    In the glass practice you can see the window fall down. The window falling from the sledgehammer made the window lose its strength since it’s not up all the way there for losing much needed strength

    So it looks kinda dumb compared to modern cars, but just imagine you look outside your house and there’s three of these parked out there? Sounds terrifying to me. Especially if he gets that glass working, it’s a practical tank. The day the government starts using these is the day I move to Siberia to be harassed by the KGB.

    U can’t hate it because the windows cracked. Go out side and throw one of them balls at your car window let’s see how it will shatter compared to his windows. Plus I’m positive he will fix the problem.

    I mean....you threw the ball over and over before doing it again on stage. Of course the glass was compromised by that point. Lmao

    Pretty sure they did the whole glass thing on purpose as a marketing strategy because it’s a great meme template


    The way they showed off the strength of the exterior was poorly thought out. First off anyone can increase or reduce force used when slinging a sledgehammer. A more efficient way other than that guy trying to. make a dent shouldve been use to show the strength of the structure. Secondly, swinging a sledghammer while faced away from the audience couldve ended bad. One misgrip and thats off with somones head. Smh.

    you guys ever just watch some of those movies where like an idol that a community loves, becomes a real bad guy? i’m pretty suspect about Elon. I don’t know what he has planned

    Elon tricked everyone hahaha they don’t have any advertising and putting different glass in the truck gets people talking about the truck so in my opinion he intentionally put different windows in it then it would normally have just to get people talking

      Was it 3 year old little Timmy again?..... Well good job Timmy. It's your best Picasso yet... Your Pre-School teacher will be proud....... Sure Elon Musk created it, Timmy........ Timmy's so cute... He thinks Elon Musk created his cute little kindergarten picture.

    If that window didn't break, The stock probably wouldn't of went down OR went down SOOO much..... My opinion on the truck is.... I think it would be cool to see them driving around in our roads. It looks very retro & futuristic at the same time. If there was a car that was the trucks lil brother it would be the 'Back To The Future" car..... Now... If I had the money I would buy it. Especially since if anything breaks you can ONLY get it towed & fixed at Tesla. Also if anything goes witg with it. IE Airbags deployed. It sends a signal back to the mother ship & Tesla renders it Totaled & locks out the software so repairs become impossible. I don't like someone being in control of any item I buy after I purchase it. It should be my choice Where, When, How, If or If Not, I wanna repair it... Not anyone else. But if you buy a Tesla, Legally you don't own it or have 100% Control of what u can or can not do with it.
