Can it make it all the way from its battery plant to its production line without charging?When Elon Musk posted photos of two Tesla Semis leaving Gigafactory 1 on Wednesday morning, the first thing we thought about was him chasing the two trucks, wearing a white cowboy hat in a Tesla Roadster, blasting "Eastbound and Down" by Jerry Reed (aka the "Smokey and the Bandit" theme), and it made us happy.

Tesla Admits Autopilot Was Active In Fatal Model X Crash

  Tesla Admits Autopilot Was Active In Fatal Model X Crash The driver, though using Autopilot, had visual and audible warning prior to the crash that claimed their life.Last week, a Tesla Model X driver was killed when their vehicle impacted a concrete highway divider, whose crash attenuator was out of order from a prior incident.

Are they homeless-by-choice millennial Silicon Beach brogrammers living in their Model Xs by the beach because #vanlife?

We're just as confused as you probably are, dear reader. Still, this is a way better idea than the Autopilot Buddy, so at least there's that.
