Tesla Model X Falcon Doors Versus DeLorean DMC-12 Gull-Wing Doors – Images + Video

OCT 12 2015 BY ERIC LOVEDAY 7

Tesla board member and Model X owner Steve Jurvetson posted this video from the Stanford Future Fest.

The video captures a DeLorean DMC-12 with its gull-wing doors open and compares it to the Model X’s falcon doors.

Jurvetson writes:

“Future Fest at Stanford — with a “Backing the Future” theme, as it was the 30-year anniversary of the movie Back to the Future, as well as the 30th year of DFJ. In the movie series, they jump to THE FUTURE… and it’s October 2015. So we had a tricked out DeLorean, and staged perhaps the first face-off of the gull-wing doors and the Model X falcon-wing doors.”

Q: How much is the option package for equipping the Model X with a flux capacitor and a Mr. Fusion powered antigravity system?

A: If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.

Tesla Doesn’t have the Flux Capacitor Charging Network yet [to supply the required 1.21 gigawatts of power (1,210,000,000 watts)], nor do they have the required plutonium-powered nuclear reactor!

Don’t miss celebrating the 30th Anniversary of ‘Back to the Future’ this week, as well –

I prefer the Mrs. Fusion option.

I like this site, but what is up with the ads?! The ones that block the pictures are annoying, straight up. Then there’s this keyword “driving”, hover over it and some cleavage pops up. Great! There has to be a better way.

Dang. I knew there would be a downside to using a pop-up blocker.

Ads shown are generally a reflection of recent websites visited 🙂

Now, y’all knew that a Delorean vs. Model X vid was inevitable right?
