Elon Musk Claims Tesla Model S Sets New Record At Laguna Seca, Which Is Not The Nürburgring

Two days later, the NHTSA responded in the understated way typical of a federal agency. Without naming Tesla, the NHTSA argued that its “5-star rating is the highest safety rating a vehicle can achieve. NHTSA does not distinguish safety performance beyond that rating, thus there is no ‘safest’ vehicle among those vehicles achieving 5-star ratings.”
Just days after we reported that Tesla could be on the verge of a formal investigation by the NHTSA, a father and his two kids in Moscow both suffered serious injuries after their Tesla Model S on Autopilot slammed into a tow truck before bursting into flames, according to RT.
You can’t put a price tag on the value of sticking it to the man—specifically, trying to own an official surveillance system. Except maybe when you are owned right back.
The self-driving freight truck startup TuSimple has been carrying mail across the state of Arizona for several weeks.
The secret sensors, fitted to all new and used motors sold by the firm’s dealers, pinpoint the vehicle’s exact location.
Footage was posted from a security camera at home in the United Kingdom showing two hooded thieves stealing a locked Tesla in about 30 seconds by “hacking” the car‘s computer and fooling it into thinking that its key was nearby, according to the Mail.
A Texas-based company recently raised $4.5 million in seed funding to develop and commercialize a revolutionary motor that produces more torque, double the power, and increases range in an electric vehicle versus one using a typical electric motor.
A former employee at the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) was sentenced recently to two years in prison for taking bribes in exchange for altering the agency’s database — falsely suggesting some people had passed driving tests.
The company said Monday the Porsche Taycan, which will debut September 4, completed the 12.8-mile course in 7 minutes and 42 seconds. This is the fastest lap for a four-door electric vehicle. The record time was set in a pre-series Taycan driven by Lars Kern.
Bugatti’s problem is that the 304.77mph speed measured at the Volkswagen Group’s test circuit at Ehra-Lessien in Germany on 2 August was only set driving in one direction and not two.

Lamborghini teaser hints at a hybrid ‘hypercar’

Ever since Lamborghini showed off its wild MIT-collaborated Terzo Millennio concept we’ve been waiting to see what a production version could look like, and we might find out soon. Autoblog points out this teaser image posted to the company’s Instagram page which shows the logo, a silhouette and some Y-shaped LEDs that harken back to the 2017 concept.

He tried to prank the DMV. Then his vanity license plate backfired big time.

Everyone hates parking tickets. Not everyone, however, is an information security researcher with a mischievous side and a freshly minted vanity license plate reading “NULL.”

It’s no secret that keyless entry systems don’t fully protect you against car theft. That hasn’t prevented automakers from building such cars—or consumers from buying them—but this video showing how easy it is to steal several different keyless cars might start changing some minds.
The short clip was filmed by an onlooker in Shenzhen, China. The female motorist stood next to her red saloon inside the crowded car park.
The same researchers who figured out how to clone a Tesla Model S key fob have done it again, cracking the replacement that was meant to fix the problem.

At the very exclusive Quail event, the French automaker took the wraps off the limited-run Centodieci. While there won’t be many made, those that make it onto the asphalt will be powerful beasts. The vehicle has an 8.0 liter w16 (16 cylinders!) engine that produces a jaw-dropping 1,600 horsepower and 1,180 pounds-feet of torque. It’ll do zero to 62 in 2.6 seconds.

Only 10 will be produced and they’ll cost $8,877,000 each.

170 Cars Perform Simultaneous Burnouts To Set New World Record

These are several videos of 170 cars at the Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colorado simultaneously performing burnouts to retake the world record from Australia, which performed a 126 car burnout early this year. My God I bet that smelled good. I was honestly expecting to find way more fly-by drone video footage of the event, but I guess drone money is a little hard to come by when you have to buy new tires every paycheck. Keep going for the videos, the last of which I really wish was shot in Smell-O-Vision.

Tesla Model 3 owner implants RFID chip to turn her arm into a key

Amie DD, who has a background in game simulation and programming, recently released a video showing how she “biohacked” her body. The software engineer removed the RFID chip from the Tesla Model 3 valet card using acetone, then placed it into a biopolymer, which was injected through a hollow needle into her left arm. A professional who specializes in body modifications performed the injection.
