Who can resist such seductive invitation


Not much harm done, thanks to Tesla being tracked in real time by owners

It seems that getting Tesla stolen can be a fun experience for owners

So many options available, I'm glad no one got shot, the owner got her car back and the thief will get his day in court

I first read the above quote as:


"The Pinkowskis debated contacting Tesla to kill the car’s driver remotely..."

If only! :eek:

Mild zapping would be more fitting in this case

I can already see a future in which owners of borrowed cars can remotely transmit audible warnings to drivers, asking for their car prompt return.

If there is a lack of compliance with the verbal warnings, owners can start delivering a series of zaps at increasing voltage, until required compliance is achieved
