*wistful sigh* I can hardly wait until I can afford to get a Tesla. I just finished re-reading Elon's biography and I'm just so obsessed with Tesla as a company and the mission behind it. Also, who can resist summoning your car- it's easier than getting your dog to "come!", not to mention the cool, futuristic factor of it.

@katesegrin Amen! Honestly, even if I had a million bucks, I would get one of the Tesla cars over a Ferrari or other hot sports cars. Mainly to support the mission behind it, because I love Elon Musk and the tech/genius​ ideas behind it all.
@dilyaraskar @katesegrin Could not agree more. I'm not into expensive cars -- but I love my Model S, it's like living in the future.
Why isn't this the top hunt?
Obviously Musk wanted KITT as a child.
Tesla keeps pushing the boundaries where others are afraid to. Other car companies can clearly develop a similar software, but the fear of consumers' misuse is stopping them from pushing progress forward. It's all about risk mitigation. Tesla is well known to be bolder than others and to be able to handle bad publicity like a few other car companies can, but I guess they have an advantage of a more mature customer base.
How many hunts will this product have without a new model even needing to be released. Super impressive.
@jmacias That is part of the magic of over the air updates. Your car gets better, and gets new features without you having to buy a new one.
@joshdance @jmacias oh I realize that. Im not being surprised in my comment, merely wondering how many valid hunts it will garner. I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes the most uprooted product over variety of feature releases.
@jmacias that's the beauty, it just keeps getting better :)
@jmacias ah but we don't wonder why each app gets it's own hunt, even though we use the same phone or computer to access it! It's hardware vs. software :)
