Tesla owner creates V8 sound for his car – and it’s awesome

A Tesla owner in the US has added V8 sound to his electric car and the result needs to be heard to be believed. Brooks Weisblat – who is also a bit of a YouTube sensation thanks to his collection of fast-car videos on his DragTimes channel – has demonstrated how easy it is to upload the sound of a hardcore V8 and then pump the sound through the vehicle’s external speakers. However, this is no ordinary Tesla and the soundtrack is no ordinary V8.

2022 Tesla Model S Plaid+ axed: World's quickest car dead before reaching production

The 2022 Tesla Model S Plaid+ has been axed, consigning what claimed to have been the world's fastest-accelerating car to history. Tesla CEO Elon Musk confirmed on Twitter this morning the Model S Plaid+ is "cancelled", stating there is "no need, as [the] Plaid is just so good".

Vision has much more precision, so better to double down on vision than do sensor fusion,” Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in a tweet earlier this year.
