Poor Tesla screen takes a beating
YouTuber’s car is already missing roof, so why not?
We’ve all seen posts that put Tesla build quality into question, but this one does the opposite. We’re quite impressed, actually, with this very short clip of a driver kicking the absolute heck out of their Model 3’s infotainment screen. And while it does break, it definitely stood up to a beating for longer than we’d have thought.
The six-second video was posted to Twitter, and we saw it through Teslarati. The poster sounds pretty sad, but the kicker seems to be having a great time of it. After nearly a dozen kicks, the glass of the 15.0-inch screen in the Tesla Model 3 looks to be shattered, and there’s some bending of the screen backwards, but look closely.

The screen itself is still working and Autopilot seems to still be engaged. We know the brains of the system aren’t in the screen, but even the radio is still playing. Not bad.
So why is someone beating the stuffing out of their Model 3? We’re not sure, but the post with the video says that it belongs to YouTuber Danny Duncan based largely on that this car doesn’t seem to have a roof either. Duncan’s thing is pranks, and that includes wrecking a Model 3 by smashing the glass roof as well as the hood, then cutting the rest of the roof’s steel off to make a convertible.
The video including this clip hasn’t made it to Duncan’s channel yet, but it probably will sooner or later
