Tesla has been on a patent filing spree, and this week it laid down 3 patents, 2 of which involve a 2-piece gull wing door system with the first piece being part of the structural unit for the door. It's very likely then that the Model X prototype from a few months back, which featured such doors, will pass them on to the actual production car.

This could be trouble though. The last two gull-wing-doored independent car manufacturers both ended up bankrupt. Can he achieve the impossible!?
