Sound Effects – Dragster, Jet, etc.

Description

Include a button for optional sound effects that can be heard only inside the car during idle, upon acceleration and deceleration. When the sound button is activated the on screen options appear for sounds such as Muscle Car, Top Fuel Dragster or Jet Airplane .

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

This would be for entertainment purposes only – for instance, when taking friends on their first Tesla ride!!

A partial solution today is to have an audio file with the sound effect on the USB flash drive.

Good idea but ICE sounds are not on my top ten. The bridge of the Enterprise or the sound of Jed Jetsons flying car. I could go on. Yes this would be fun. The idea of having an ICE car engine go up and down with speed however is totally awesome.
Just.. no. We got a chance to hear this kind of thing as an add-on from a vendor at TMC Connect 2015, and it was laughable. There was applause and cheering when he was asked to finally turn it off. Please don't ask Tesla to include this.

This is currently available as an iPhone app called AutoTones, at least as far as a muscle car is concerned. It uses the accelerometers to match acceleration, turning, and speed.
We need an SDK that we can develop 3rd party sounds that the car can play.
