    NOTE: Better late than never. Also: Apologies if this has been posted on TMC before (did a search, no dice), but I finally had time and energy to add to the brain trust here at TMC.

    ...and I figure this is the right sub-category of the TMC forum to post, as this technology will most likely be used in future Tesla EVs (and other EVs?) down the road, not just the Model S.

    The irony? From the Website Oilprice.com. Check it out:

    July 1 2016:
    "The electric car major and Mutual Mobile announced a new app designed to work on Tesla’s Model S that will simulate the sound made by a variety of vehicles and aircraft: from a muscle car, to a fighter jet, and even a spaceship. The Tesla Gas Engine app uses Tesla’s Touchscreen web browser for its interface and a couple of tools from the iPhone 6S for telemetry: the accelerometer and the GPS."

    That's completely ridiculous. But hilarious at the same time.

    That's just too funny! The one that sounds like a jet would be a hoot.

    It does illustrate how superfluous noise will become the not too distant future. In fact, in town I am embarrassed in my Corvette making all that racket. It is kind of like shouting look at me, look at me I am driving older and slower technology. That's embarrassing!

    First Insane.

    Then Ludicrous.

    Should've known a third party would come up with Pointless.

    Hilarious video!

    How do I do this in my car?

    I sometimes search slacker and find drag-strip funny car noises and blast those with the windows open for fun. Nerd-alert!

    I just think it's just fantastic, in a geeky kind of way.

    Hmmm.

    But why stop with just sound?

    Maybe someone will market a new "Hydrocarbon" range of in-car air fresheners, offering a choice of traditional aromas such as:

    "Downtown Chicago"

    "L.A. rushhour"

    and

    "Just filled up with Premium" (with the great smell of Benzene) :D
