My car was stolen without the key

Wait, you're worried about the car being stolen? You do know that you drive a Tesla? One of the hardest to steal vehicles around?
I brought my model x to my local dealer for a windshield replacement and some recall repairs last Thursday. I get a call today from CHP that my car was found under a freeway. Apparently someone was able to steal my car without having the key. Tesla dealership says they are investigating. Can’t wait to see what they find out.

First post from a brand-new account? Not sketchy at *all*...
 
On top of it, the first post was about a Model X in the Model 3 forum.
Perhaps his X3 was stolen?

First mistake is he left it with his dealer and not the service center.
You do not need a key to drive, it drives its self
With all the Tesla models it easy to make a mistake.
I knew this new UI for the forum would be trouble.
First post should always include misalignment somewhere.
Speeding ticket or beer gets you extra points.
Always include a tire question, volume, and wind.
We love pictures, them more the better.
Year model color.
Is you partner happy with performance.
I really need a beer.
Maybe butt dialed a return home command.

As silly as this thread is, it does seem inevitable that people will figure this out (I haven't looked, I wouldn't be surprised if someone has already). Getting it mainstream or easy to access for the type of person who would want to steal a car is a much less likely thing without Tesla getting in the way and releasing a fix of some kind to prevent it.

I think I am far more concerned about their privacy/data protection and what a data leak might look like.
