I guess that is what happens when you save a few $$ on the brakes of a high performance vehicle that weighs nearly as much as a F150. I couldn’t find the article but I remember reading that the model S has a 60-0 break distance of > 140ft (42m) where as the m50 was tested got around 105ft (32m)

That's a model 3 in the video.

It's really hard to tell. The front end was already pushed in before it even got to the curb. (angle1) The rear does look more like a TM3 in angle 2, and then the top down angle is useless, because they are very similar from that angle, apart from size.

...and this is just one reason I don't like Teslas: They all look too damned similar.

I’m not buying a Tesla, but always enjoy watching Wham Baam Teslacam on YouTube. Some of it provides for some good laughs. Some of its just scary.

I’m glad no one was hurt or killed inside the convention center.

As it states in the DMV handbook: “Driving is a privilege not a right.”

Correct... Lot's of things don't match an "undamaged" Tesla...
  • bumper in front
  • black spots on the side
  • windshield wipers ???

There's got to be an interesting story behind this one. Doesn't look like a self driving mode problem. A "beater" Tesla roaming around? My first thought was it was another poser driving a rental - no experience with the power. Glad no one in the storefront was injured.

I heard it wasn't a convention center but a new hair salon.
But we're still waiting for the highlights!
