Tesla tested one of their trucks by shooting it with a .45ACP.

The truck has all of its tires, so, clearly it wasn’t actually left on the Chicago streets.

Now leave it in San Francisco for a couple of days with a backpack on the front seat, let’s see how good that glass really is.

Seriously, I’m not seeing impact scars on the glass. I wonder … Did they not shoot it, is it that good, or am I just not seeing them? (On a very small phone screen at the moment.)

If this was the “Design Intent” for the vehicle one has to wonder what the motivation for it is?

I would like to see the ammo brand,type, to consider it a true test.

Everyone knows the hoodrats pack a 9, WTH is testing with a .45 going prove. Big fat ball of lead at 900 fps does a number on a human, but the 1400 fps of a +P 9 mm might just penetrate a car door better.

What the Tesla fanboy doesn’t grasp is that the competition doesn’t care about bullet resistance, they care about selling actual trucks. I suppose a Ford or Rivian marketing type might have pissed themselves laughing at this attempted flex by a companywhoannounceda product 4 years ago and missed their releasedate every yearsince..

Well, I watched Musk “Test” a window which had already survived the test. Until This one. His face was something. He kept his composure very well, as glass fell.
Bulletproof, in and of itself, is good, no matter where you are, but considering the damn thing may just leave you right where you are is especially comforting.

Now, let’s say some Nutjob decides he’s going Tesla hunting, he’s probably going to get the ammo that Will penetrate and aim into the battery pack. Bulletproof or not,, someone is gonna be getting OUT.. Because

So Elon is now marketing for the Mad Max future of the FUSA. Nice. Of course, you’ll need to keep it charged up, and that’s gonna require a lot of power. Yeah, we can tweak a generator to run on methane. But remind me again, who runs Bartertown?

Whatever happened to Baphomet chestplate Halloween costume Elon’s ugly truck?
My favorite is the bus with WWII tail gunner photochopped on there and it says Chicago (CPUSA) buses.
Chicago is CPUSA (D) central HQ and many quisling traitor nation wrecker slime have emerged from there.
You can start to smell the Chicago abomination around Scary Gary Indiana.
