    Looks like the standard frunk dent, probably didn't have his hands in the right place when he closed it.

    Haha...the exact same thing went through my head when I saw TWACC.

    Are you really THE founder of the burrito?

    I want to laugh (because this post is funny), but I feel too bad for the owner of that Tesla!

    Were you wearing a plaid hunting cap and carrying a double-barreled shotgun when you typed that, Elmer?

    Yet another reason to go with 85 instead of 85D? :)

    I helped support the communal burrito fest in Carmel at TMC Connect (2014). The attribution came from a related discussion. :)

    Hmm... I've been doing software for a while now and I admit I think they're going to have a few obstacles to overcome when they try to put out that update.

    Probably going to need to be hooked up to a supercharger for that one to utilize the frunk's hidden energy->matter converter... and sit there for about 140 million years while it gathers enough energy.

    Tesla has been somewhat unclear about the automated driving feature coming in 7.0 and how it works. Similar to Siri or Cortana I think this shows the potential opportunity we have to make driving easier. I do agree that we might require a hardware upgrade however to make this work properly.

    I only have an older classic Model S, but is that the new autopilot hardware I've been hearing about? Nice upgrade! I seem to recall an earlier version of that type of autopilot using a male, blow-up model that was used to fly an Airplane. I saw it in a movie, but it seemed to work fine back then, until it sprung a leak. This newer version seems far more refined!

    Hopefully the 6.3 model will have a higher IQ than the 6.2 model....
