    Best explanation for why Model X needs "fancy" doors, courtesy of Silicon Valley S2E7.

    Initial explanation scene, interior of Russ's home
    Russ: I had to sell my McLaren.

    Erlich: There's a Maserati in the driveway.

    Russ:
    Who gives a <bleep>?
    That has doors that open like this.
    Not like this.

    Or like this.
    So it's all <bleeped>.

    Follow-up explanation scene, in front of restaurant valet
    Russ:
    You know what I have?
    A <bleeping> car whose doors open like this.

    Not like this.

    Not like this.

    These are not the doors of a billionaire, Richard. <Bleep> you!

    I guess calling them the "Crane" doors wouldn't have worked...



    ...so maybe we should rename this move to the "Falcon Wing Kick"?

    If only we could program a sound for the doors opening, I would have to use Joe Esposito's "You're the Best" from this movie.
