When it comes to quirky humor, this trumps the “Insane” button in the P85D or the “All our patent are belong to you” declaration. In a nod to old-school video games and their cheat codes, secret zones, secret rooms etc., Tesla has embedded a secret screen in Model S software that shows the car as the Lotus Esprit submarine/car from the James Bond film “The Spy Who Loved Me.” Click the image for an instructional video.
Musk bought the vehicle — a functional submarine but not a car — a few years back with the intent of making it drive-and-dive as in the film.
TeslaMondo has already pointed out the rarity of humor in auto-making. Tesla once again shows it has no interest in behaving like its stiff peers. Still waiting for Tesla to produce a Model Q, named after the gadget guy in Bond films.
