    This is great @TEG! Keep 'em coming. Ironically, we're getting to see parts of the car not normally exposed to sunlight so this is visually educational.

    Interesting that most of the damage is front-end. Brakes (or, lack thereof)?

    #686 with custom copper paint that Elon decided he didn't want after all:

    Then painted "Midnight Cherry" with 2.0 bodywork:

    Then launched into space with 2.5 style nose and "Starman" at the helm:

    Not exactly a "wreck", but it has been partially gutted, possibly made radioactive, and is now subject to asteroid impacts, alien probes, and could end up in the Sun someday, so likely "done" as an earthbound motor vehicle...

    Yes, that has been my opinion - that Roadster was "under-braked" for the power / torque. And rear-ending someone else was one of the possible hazards of driving them. If you have a Roadster and see another group buy for upgraded brakes, I would vote you get them.

    ( Pause for a moment of silence for anyone who was injured in any of these crashes... )
