Tesla are one of the most popular car brands at the moment, their advanced technology is the main reason for this, although having said that, these cars are not for everyone. First, because they have a fairly high price, but also, as the American rapper Rick Ross points out, they have some aspects that are not convincing.
With technology becoming a bigger and more important part of our lives, all sectors are affected by its advances, including the automotive industry. Within this, Tesla are possibly the most technologically equipped cars, since they include functions both for driving and for the comfort and enjoyment of passengers.
But without a doubt, the most outstanding aspect of the Tesla is a skill that is not fully developed at the moment, but it seems that sooner rather than later it will be, it is the autonomous driving.
And precisely this aspect is the one that scares the rapper and well-known car lover Rick Ross the most, who from his Instagram account has shared his opinion about the Tesla. “I’m not going to say I’ll never have a smart car, but I have never ridden in a Teslaexplained Ross, “The reason is that the idea that the authorities can hack my car to keep me under control doesn’t come out of my head”.
And it is that the Tesla are driven by powerful software, but like any other, can be intervened by a hacker and infect the car with a virus. Although what worries Ross is that whether the government or the police gain access to your car, your location and even went so far as to speculate that they might take control of your car and steer it towards police station for them to question him.
This reason can be laughable for almost everyone, but not for Ross who has a history of possession of marijuana and weapons, although he has never been in prison.
How true is Ross’s theory?
The truth is, no matter how funny or twisted the rapper theory is, in practice this is impossiblee, since at least until now no one has been able to drive a car remotely. That does not mean that, in a few years, cybercriminals will develop malware capable of doing so.
