It's probably just the way the light's reflected, but it sure looks like a dent.
That's a $950 option.
I would assume that anything like this wouldn't have made it this far in the production line. I am willing to bet a LOT of money its just light. That's something so obvious that you would first catch, fix, and move it along.
But, I never built a car so what do I know.
Me too. Just thought it was strange they used it as their home page picture - it jumped out at me the second I saw it.
Yes it's definitely the light...but I agree it looks like a dent!
Does the aluminium go all the way down to the diffuser, or is that a plastic bumper? I don't remember ever looking that closely.
It's a plastic bumper cover. I think the crinkling in the protective back stuff is causing the light reflection to read as if it were a dent.
Speaking of dents, how do aluminum body cars generally stand up to parking lot dents and such? I always try to park away from other cars, but invariably end up with door dings and dents from other cars.
Paintless dent removal services abound for regular steel bodied cars. Can the same be done with aluminum panels?
This post just made me curious about that.
I think it is just a reflection of some other part of the factory.
What looks like a dent may just be a bit of uneven light coming in from between neighboring machinery.
I bet it is a reflection of some round piece of equipment.
But you can get delivery earlier
Dents were not a problem in the Series III Land-Rover. However, it wasn't nearly as wide as the Model S. I believe it's the width and not the material that makes it dent prone.
Not nearly enough information to make an informed guess but when has that stopped us?
The bumper is plastic. It's not attached to the car. The top lip is pulled out to allow the black protection material under it. This is temporarily distorting the plastic bumper until a later time it can be pushed back in and fully attached.
I still just think it is a reflection / shadow...
It looks to me like that gray-black protective cover just sits on top of the bodywork, not causing it to be pulled out or deformed.
