    Amazing footage and engineering design.

    A real, crashworthy EV. I'm still blown away by this achievement. Fantastic.

    I sincerly hope that Tesla aren't forced into a redesign for advanced airbag systems at this late stage, but they certainly have the engineering ability and business flexibilty to call on if it comes to that.

    It's just the money, the time and the PR.

    I like Martin's quip at the the end of the 50 MPH rear truck collision test.

    "A car crash is fundamentally different that a software crash."

    I guess that means not to expect car manufacturers to start up in Redmond, WA.
