    Figured I'd share this one that just popped up when sifting through stuff in 2.50.114.

    I won't tell you how to do it and take all of the fun out of it... but it's pretty obvious. :)

    Can you scroll around the map - does it show the whole globe? Makes me itchy to get 2.50.114. I'm betting "whereis Mark Whatney" is not the right code...

    To go to mars, hold the Tesla icon on the top center of the screen until it flashes, about five seconds. Then release it. Then type "mars" in the box. To return to earth, repeat above steps but type "earth".
    I tried "moon" and "Saturn", but the car stubbornly stayed on Earth.

    Hmm...when you bring up that Mars map does the car go into Bioweapon Defense Mode and in addition the "Full Life Support" mode kicks in so you can drive and survive in a 0.087 psi atmosphere? ;)

    What are those wings? Deployable solar panels?

    They remind me either of a flying fish:

    or Otto Lilienthal's glider:

    Yes that is exactly what they are. Watch the video that @Gwgan linked to. It is fascinating and inspiring!

    I assume a Tesla car on Mars would have greater range and faster acceleration than on Earth.
    If true, has anyone figured out how much?

    I guess it may depend on road conditions there?

    Since we've all (.............) made the assumption that Mars runs on Elontime, a Tesla there oughta be able to go 0-100 in 0.00000x Mars-seconds.

    Does it let you set the destination on Mars? Or does that require that you purchased the "Full SpaceTravel" option on top of FSD? ;)

    But with no superchargers on Mars, good luck getting home.
