Tesla Cybertruck Gets Riddled by Tommy Gun, Proves Bulletproof Worthiness

Tesla’s latest headline-grabbing feat involves a Tommy gun, a Cybertruck, and a claim to bulletproof worthiness. When the electric automaker unveiled its groundbreaking Cybertruck, it boldly asserted that this vehicle was designed to be virtually bulletproof, raising eyebrows and curiosity among fans and skeptics alike.

The Cybertruck’s promotional materials emphasized its exceptional durability and passenger protection, boasting of an “impenetrable exoskeleton” and components engineered for superior strength and endurance. This included the Ultra-Hard 30X Cold-Rolled stainless-steel structural skin and the controversial Tesla armor glass, which famously faltered during the steel ball test at its initial unveiling.

In a recent daring demonstration, Tesla decided to put its bulletproof claims to the test. The company shot a Tommy gun at the Cybertruck, an act reminiscent of Prohibition-era gangsters like Al Capone. Tesla CEO Elon Musk, never one to shy away from the limelight, confirmed the experiment and boasted about the results: “We emptied the entire drum magazine of a Tommy gun into the driver door Al Capone style. No bullets penetrated into the passenger compartment.”

While Musk’s statement implies the Cybertruck’s bulletproof capabilities, it’s worth noting that the test seemingly targeted the steel body panels rather than the controversial windows, which failed to live up to expectations during the vehicle’s debut.

The Cybertruck is slated to undergo further scrutiny and public scrutiny as Tesla plans to host a “delivery event” for the electric pickup truck on November 30. During this event, the automaker is expected to provide comprehensive details about the production version of the Cybertruck, and Musk has been tirelessly building anticipation, labeling it as Tesla’s “best product ever.” It’s a safe bet that this event will include data on the vehicle’s bulletproof attributes or, at the very least, a video showcasing the Tommy gun test, allowing fans and critics to witness the results firsthand.
