Good news is everyone seems to be fine. This happened right outside my work.
but damn, every crash photo of this car makes it look like a freakin tank.
Auch! My favorite color :frown:... Although I hope nobody ever gets hurt, a major crash would provide great insights to the true safety. Must say that the aluminum crumbles quite differently from plate steel .
What did they hit? That is really a wierd crumple pattern!
It was a four car crash apparently and Tesla was hit in the rear too (but nothing more than a scratch on bumper). I don't know which car the Tesla hit.
It's true, aside from mandatory crumple zones these things are built like M1 tanks. I hope nobody ever has to find out the limits of a Tesla...
Ick. Any pictures available of the other side?
nope other side in busy street and didn't want to get run over :smile:
Looks like it might have hit an SUV's trailer hitch considering the point of impact looks to be where the hood meets the grill at a singular point.
I was thinking the same. Looks like something "sharp" right above the nose cone.
Poor sexy brown.
Yikes I have a friend in town here in San Diego who owns a brown Model S. I was just in the car with him the other day! Hope this isn't his car!
Looks like the typical guy in front stops, his nose dives and butt goes up just in time for the next guy in line to slide underneath. I second that underneath was a trailer hitch and it just gaffed the hood.
That crumple pattern caught my eye too.
My first thought was "corner of a box-truck liftgate". It had to be something up high that the nose of the Model S was able to drive under for a couple of feet.
Either that or the Hulk or Man of Steel stopped the car.
Glad no injuries. I think that's the first brown with gray wheel combo I've seen. Looks (looked) pretty sharp.
Is it just my imagination or does the car look like it's saying "just a flesh wound" but in a very angry voice ("damn kids, get off my roads!")?
Looks like no frame damage? Good thing is, because there's nothing in the frunk, and looks like passenger side wheel well came through relatively unscathed (which means the DC-DC converter may be undamaged), it will be repairable? Ouch.
