    Not discovered by me, but by a fellow community member. If you happen to be charging your battery when left with 121 miles, a dialog box appears in which you can select to turn "Time Circuits On". The app screen then changes to a whole bunch of Back to the Future references. Was discovered using a Model X, so not sure if this works on a Model S and Model 3 as well.

    I assume it's for the MX only given the gullwing doors. Cool find as a BTTF fan. I've been to viewing of the movie at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and attended the Hollywood Bowl Back to the Future night with the score played live by the LA Phil. Talk about hi-fi...no matter how much you spend on an amp and speakers it just won't be as good as a live performance.

    Has been confirmed to work on the Model S. Turned the pic into a Model X and turned the P100D into a P88D. Also had another reference in the displayed firmware version.

    Nice, 121 miles for the 1,21 gigawatts of electricity you need. :)

    So it's about 195km (for those not stick with medieval measuring units)
    I wonder if the maybe the number, not the range is trigging it, and what happens if you have opted to see battery percentage, not range..

    Others have reported it works on Model X, Model S and Model 3, and that it works on iOS and Android. Does not require that the car is charging while at 121 miles, but if you open the app and hit the battery while the range is showing 121, that it will open up the Easter Egg prompt.

    Is that confirmed or does it work at 121 km for those of us set to metric? I don’t have the update yet.

    “Medieval Measuring Units” LOL

    My 2015 S 70D was charging and when I checked it had 122 miles.
    I stopped charging. I then turned on the heat to drain the battery of one mile of range.
    I now had 121 miles of range.
    I did not see the easter egg. I rebooted my phone and reestablished connection with the Tesla app.
    Still no Easter egg.
    Am I doing it wrong or is my car too old for it to work?

    Did you tap on the battery icon when it had 121 miles?

    Just curious who is claiming this discovery? Or was it 'leaked' by someone at Tesla?

    Can you imagine the range on that thing? It wouldn’t need a charge port. It would come pre-charged 100% from the factory and last the life of the car!

    Is it really an "easter egg" if Tesla is telling you exactly where they hid it?

    Maybe I'm bias; since I actually hunted for and discovered the first Tesla easter egg (holding down on the model ##'s). Since then, it seems most 'eggs' are leaked by Tesla themselves for cheap headlines.

    Really wish they would focus resources on fixing/improving other areas of their software... v9 is pure caca. I guess that's why they had to make a Fart app. <SMH>

    Confirmed to work on a model 3 and Android
    Lots of hidden detail in there.
    Fuel chamber: 300R
    The location is apparently the address of Puenta Hills Mall (where the mall scenes were filmed)
    The upcoming service time is obviously relevant
    P88D!
    The odometer 33062 is apparently what the odometer in the DeLorean read when it jumped to 1955
    The VIN number is interesting.
    - it all checks out for a 1981 Delorean, (except the check digit, so this is not a valid VIN)
    - the SN in the VIN (5261) is a nice touch. John DeLorean was born on Jan 6, 1925 (1.6.25 or 5261 reversed)
    The version is 1985.43 (Oct 26 would be week 43)
    I'm sure there is something significant about the "75lab77f". If I know software engineers they don't often pick number randomly. Any ideas?
    Ohh ... I see it. (Gah I hate l33t). It reads "TSLABTTF" (Tesla B.T.T.F.)

    I made a short video of the Easter egg at 121Km of range

    I am being careful not to claim the discovery myself. It was not leaked by Tesla but someone in a Facebook group I belong to discovered it randomly - just so happened to be in the app with the right circumstances (121 miles of range). He wasn't aware of how it even popped up (by clicking the battery icon) so was likely pure luck.

    The Electrek article incorrectly credited me with the discovery despite my post being explicit in stating that I did not discover it.
