Let us know what you think
Last Fall, Tesla Version 7.0 software introduced a range of new Autopilot active safety and convenience features to give you more confidence behind the wheel, increase your safety on the road, and make highway driving more enjoyable. The release of Tesla Version 7.1 software continues our improvements to self-driving technology. This release expands Autopilot functionality and introduces the first iteration of Summon.

Target for our Model X firmware team was that the falcon doors be as graceful as ballerinas in normal operation.
Mission accomplished. Merry Model X-mas.

Worth a few minutes of your Wednesday evening. Narration almost as fun as watching my baby gobble a couple of the world's fastest cars.

Vs. Bentley Bentayga: "You just watched the world's fastest SUV get its a** handed to it by an electric SUV."

Vs. Alfa Romeo: "Ok, so there you have it: an Alfa 4C Spyder racing an Alfa 4C Spyder...thaaats strapped onto a trailer being towed by a Model X ... The point here is that the Alfa 4C is a really, really fast car. And the Model X is so much faster that you have to put a 4,000 pound trailer on it to make it only as fast as a really, really fast car."

*The Most Amazing SUV on the Road"
Stunning performance backs up a technological show of dominance
An amazing car for the moment, unfortunately compromised by those doors.

"The Model X is the SUV someone else would have built if they had any balls. It is the world’s greatest SUV in a class of one…a class called The Future. The X is to SUV’s what the S is to luxury sedans, which is what Tesla is to the entire car industry: an icepick in the face of convention...an example of what happens when a company is willing to take risks on our behalf rather than at our expense."

Great to hear my second baby (autopilot) referenced in every review of my first (Model X).
Alex Roy drives, tests, and loves, the Tesla Model X P90D.
