PostHeaderIcon Tesla Model S Drove On Autopilot and Saved The Drunk Driver’s Life

We have been hearing stories about how the autonomous system has failed in cars and even killed people in some cases. How about we talk about a life-saving incident for a change? A 45-year old man in his Tesla Model S was spotted by the cops cruising on an expressway fast asleep. They chased the car for minutes before successfully stopping it. Imagine the dire consequences had it not been for the Autopilot system.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Hacked the Tesla Model 3 To Run YouTube and Ubuntu Linux

Tesla’s “people’s car.” the Model 3, was thought to be harder to crack into than the Model S and Model X that proved to be a field day for hackers. However, we’re now seeing a Model 3 owner on Reddit showcase his ability to run YouTube and Ubuntu on his car.

This is not the first instance of a Model 3 getting hacked into. Earlier this year, an owner, who goes by the name of ’Ingineerix’ online, was able to crack open Tesla’s ’Factory Mode’ to reveal interesting information about the car’s full battery pack capacity, information that Tesla only offered as a range figure.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Releases an Update to Address Model 3 Cold Weather Issues but It’s the Laziest Fix Ever

Less than a week since we were talking about the trials and tribulations experienced by Tesla Model 3 owners as wintery weather hit the northern hemisphere, Tesla released a so-called fix that should act as a temporary solution to the problem of freezing windows, door handles, and charge ports. The fix, though, seems to be the cause of further problems.

Tesla’s compact Model 3 sedan is experiencing its first full winter since being introduced late last year. While the bigger Model S didn’t seem to be troubled by colder temperatures, the cheaper Model 3 is a bit on the sensitive side. Many customers have reported finding their door handles frozen as well as their windows which meant they couldn’t access their vehicles – even after pre-heating them for 10 or 15 minutes straight. Now, Tesla pushed through a new system update that’s meant to make things right again, but, apparently, it’s barely a knee-jerk reaction to a more complex issue.

PostHeaderIcon Check Out This Cool Tesla Model 3 Key Fob

The Tesla Model 3 keycard has had polarising opinions from the very beginning, but there’s no denying that is a pain in the ass to use. In fact, even Musk was quoted saying, “We really need to provide a normal key to the customers of the car.” The answer to this – a key fob -was “leaked,” thanks to an FCC application. The key fob is now available at Tesla’s website for $150,
but don’t rush over there just it – it’s already sold out.

PostHeaderIcon Someone Should Let Elon Musk Know that The Tesla Model 3 Has Some Serious Winter Issues

Winter is upon us, and this might just be worrying news for Tesla Model 3 owners living in colder climates as reports have emerged of some models encountering issues in low temperatures such as the door handles freezing or the recharging system malfunctioning due to the cold.

The Model 3, which was launched last year, is now facing its first full winter, which can get cripplingly cold in the northern hemisphere. That’s why a number of owners in countries like Canada were aghast to find out that, despite the car’s pre-heating system it would sometimes lock them out due to freezing door handles and windows.

PostHeaderIcon Starman and Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster Cruise Past Mars on the Way to Deep Space Nine

Starman seems to be an “out-of-the-world” driver. Giving stiff competition to Le Mans drivers, Starman, in Musk’s Tesla Roadster, has been on it for nine months and has gone beyond the Red Planet. SpaceX shared Starman’s current position in a diagram, showing that the Roadster has reached beyond Mars.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Launches “Track Mode,” Turns Model 3 Into Drift Machine

One of the coolest advantages of electric powertrains over internal combustion engines is that power and torque are available instantly. And this is one of the reasons why the Tesla Model S is the quickest production car with a 0-to-60 benchmark of only 2.5 seconds. Now, Tesla wants to put the Model 3’s instant torque to good use on the race track through a new driving mode. It’s called Track Mode and turns the compact sedan into a drift machine.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Must Pony Up $5 Million In Reimbursements Over Autopilot 2.0 Delays

Tesla’s back in the news and, lo and behold, it’s again because they have to pay a few million dollars back. This time, the money will go to aggravated customers who bought the $5,000-worth Autopilot 2.0 suite only to find out that they have to wait months before it actually becomes available.

As part of the $5,400,000 settlement, which will see Tesla pay back customers anywhere between $25 and $280 depending on when they purchased the car. Basically, Tesla announced they will release the Autopilot 2.0 group of functions in December of 2016 in two separate packages: the ’Enhanced Autopilot’ package which was priced at $5,000 and the ’Fully Self-Driving’ package which cost $2,000 less. Sadly for customers, Tesla couldn’t keep up to its side of the bargain so lawsuits were filed aplenty.

PostHeaderIcon Mercedes and Tesla Could Climb Into Bed Together Once Again

Did you know Mercedes-Benz and Tesla worked together closely back in 2009? In fact, the German automaker saved Tesla from bankruptcy by acquiring almost 10-percent stake in the company. Since then, both companies have grown apart and taken their own paths, but Mercedes-Benz is still open to working with Tesla in the future.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Summon – Your Solution to Two Hour Parking Laws

You could argue that the original automobile was invented to get around the hassle of dealing with horses and all the difficulties associated with using a giant mammal to get from A to B. Sure, that’s a gross simplification, and there were certainly other factors at play, but convenience undoubtedly played a major role all the same. Now, with the advent of autonomous drive systems, our lives are about to get a whole lot easier, as evidenced by this Tesla owner’s novel use of the Summon feature.

PostHeaderIcon Help your Tesla Model 3 stand out with RevoZport widebody kit

RevoZport already provides kits to fit the Tesla Model S and Model X, but now they’ve launched one for the smaller Tesla Model 3 too. They call it the R-Zentric Model 3R Aerokit, and it is essentially a widebody aero kit for Tesla’s smallest offering, one that completely transforms how the EV sedan is perceived.

PostHeaderIcon The Range-Topping Tesla Model 3 Now Comes Standard with the Performance Upgrade

Tesla has been changing Model 3 prices very frequently lately. In its latest change, the automaker has added the $5,000 performance upgrade package as standard equipment on the top-trim of the Model 3 without any increase in the price. This time, the change is a good thing!

PostHeaderIcon Hot Wheels Re-Issues the Tesla Roadster as a Hat Tip to its Falcon Heavy Launch

Hot Wheels is reissuing the Tesla Roadster to commemorate the launch of Elon Musk’s Falcon Heavy rocket earlier this year. The 1:64 scale die-cast comes in a Metallic Dark Red paint, drawing similarities to Elon Musk’s own Roadster, which made the trip to space inside Falcon Heavy. Unfortunately, neither “Starman” nor a 1:4096 miniature Roadster on the dashboard are included in 1:64 scale Roadster

PostHeaderIcon “Dog Mode” Will Turn Your Tesla into your Dog’s Best Friend

Are you worrying about your four-legged companion’s well-being while waiting for you back in your Tesla? Well, soon, you’ll have no reason for concern as Tesla’s poised to introduce a “Dog Mode” to keep dogs cool and calm inside while they wait for your return.

Following a series of tweet exchanges between Tesla CEO Elon Musk and some inquiring users, it seems like Tesla looks at ways to implement a “Dog Mode” that will keep the temperature inside the car cool, or warm, depending on the season, to have them relaxed until the owners come back.

While it’s unknown when will this mode will drop, supposedly as part of an upcoming system update; it isn’t Tesla’s first feature of this kind. The American manufacturer released two years ago the Cabin Overheat Protection mode which does exactly what its name suggests it would.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Offers New Mid Range Model 3 To Tempt EV Buyers, But Base Trim Buyers Might Be Out Of Luck

A new Model 3 is now available to order. It’s called the “Mid Range,” and it offers 260 miles per charge, a top speed of 125 mph, and a 0-to-60 mph time of 5.6 seconds, all for $45,000. Factor in the $7,500 Federal Tax Credit and $4,300 in average fuel savings, and the final price comes to $33,200, which makes it quite tempting for those looking to live the Tesla lifestyle without dropping a ton of coin. However, with the base Model 3 not hitting production until next year and the Federal Tax Credit on its way out the door, will the Mid Range be the best Tesla you can buy?

PostHeaderIcon First Driving Impression: An Honest Take on the 2018 Tesla Model S

The first time I ever saw the Tesla Model S was sometime in 2012 or 2013 at one of the car shows in Europe. I will guess that it was in Geneva. I left the Tesla stand a bit underwhelmed by its interior, but the performance, the size, and the sheer fact that someone is buying an electric car like that was more than enough to show me its importance. After that, I drove it only once. And not for a long time at that.

Now, finally, I got my third chance with the Tesla Model S at the Continental AG organized event called the #blackchili. In Nice. Yup, the South of France. I know, I am a lucky guy.

This time I had the Tesla Model S for 40 or so miles. Not the P100D, but the one with 373 horsepower. More than enough, believe me. Considering I drove the car for less than 50 miles, it may seem like I don’t have anything to write home about. How can I call this a short test drive then!? Well, I can because I will tell you about the Tesla Model S from the perspective of a guy who drove European cars all his life, and who never really had an EV stint like this.

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Claims Model 3 Achieves “Lowest Probability of Injury” Ever Tested by NHTSA

Tesla’s compact Model 3 sedan is clearly one of the safest cars on the market today, receiving a perfect 5-star safety rating after being tested by the NHTSA. To add to that, Tesla has claimed that the Model 3 scored the lowest probability of injury score ever recorded by the NHTSA.

The Model 3 is fresh off receiving a 5-star rating from the NHTSA after completing the full NCAP tests earlier this year. The smallest Tesla was awarded five stars across the board, including each sub-category, and for standard safety equipment. Now, Tesla posted on their blog that the Model 3 is also the car with the lowest likelihood of injury in case of a crash out of all the cars ever tested by the NTHSA.

Learn more about how safe the Model 3 is and why NHTSA doesn’t quite agree with Tesla

PostHeaderIcon Tesla Model S Driver Rams Into A Nissan SUV Despite Autopilot’s Warning

This is the latest Autopilot crash; but it wasn’t the system’s fault. A couple, who was too busy engrossed in something else other than focusing on the road, rear-ended a Nissan SUV despite the system warning and chiming its brains out. How can one trust a machine blindly?

PostHeaderIcon Drag Race Battle – Ferrari 812 Superfast Versus Tesla Model X P100D

On paper, an SUV should have no business competing against a supercar in a drag race. But the cars in question, a Ferrari 812 Superfast and a Tesla Model X P100D, aren’t exactly too far apart in the performance category. One produces 588 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, while the other has 790 horsepower and 530 pound-feet of torque on tap. Line them side-by-side on a drag strip and the question of who wins isn’t as ridiculous as it sounds. In the end, such a race took place at the Drag Times home track of Palm Beach International Raceway. As for which car won? Watch the video and find out.
