Is this entirely because the one guy who would want this more than anyone is Elon Musk? Seems kind kind of a dick move. :( »
I'm utterly confused by this whole thing. What is it about the locking system that's causing these cars to roll away? What does one thing have to do with the other? It's not like you enter the code wrong a few times and the car puts itself in drive and takes off to get away from you. »
I think the roof is really cool to see working, and lots of fun to play with in the configurator, but now that you have some real world experience with it, would you actually want to own it? »
