The BMW Z1 had something similar.
And yes, I'm joking. Half joking.
Prooobably the third time this has been posted over the years
While I've seen this concept several times, this is the first time I've seen this particular "cut-up" demo. But poor fit & finish. The trim doesn't line up on the door's left-side.
Putting aside whether this would even be possible in the model X, this is *not* a better alternative to falcon doors. Falcon doors are designed for two things: parents loading and unloading car seats in the second or third row, and people being able to get in the third row without climbing over the second row seat. For both of these the fact that the roof opens up above the seats allows much easier access to the second and third row seats. Although the door you posted helps with someone not running in to the door while loading a car seat, it does not prevent one from hitting their head while loading a child or getting in to the third row.
I think we're talking about 2 different things here. Why not keep the Falcon doors as is, and replace the front doors with these rotating ones? That way when you park your Model-X on a stage and a Honda Odyssey & Audi Q7 park too close to you, everyone can get out from all rows. :smile:
Of course, this is for fun since it will never happen. Maybe in 20 years when the batteries density is twice of that today, they can spare some of the under-carriage for door storage.
I saw this somewhere. that's neat.

Why not just have the front doors open like this:
and the rear doors open like this:
Double-falcon doors (dragon-fly door?) would work with a more traditional design, but it won't work with the Model-X's panoramic windshield. You can't have both.
No, the front doors would be scissor or butterfly doors like a McLaren or Lamborghini, rear doors would be Falcon. Just a joke of course. But perhaps more feasible than the above video :smile:
As if the falcon doors aren't going to attract enough attention, go ahead and add scissor doors! ;-)
The guy from Silicon Valley will have a most unusual rant in that case. His arms would have to imitate John Travolta in the 70s.
"These are the doors of a billionaire!"
Did he know something back then that we still don't know?
These are NOT the doors of a billionaire ! Musk is in the tres commas (') club.
These are actually much better, but I guess harder to implement.
