Elon Musk SLAMMED for response to ‘dangerous’ video of couple having sex in Tesla

Elon Musk SLAMMED for response to ‘dangerous’ video of couple having sex in … However, it seems that despite this, the firm’s CEO, Elon Musk , was …

Last week, a raunchy video was uploaded to PornHub , showing a couple having sex in a moving Tesla car while it was on Autopilot mode.

The video is of pornstar Taylor Jackson and her boyfriend, and has already garnered over 2 million views on the porn site.

Tesla explicitly states that Autopilot mode ‘does not make the vehicle autonomous’, and that drivers should keep two hands on the wheel at all times.

However, it seems that despite this, the firm’s CEO, Elon Musk , was unfazed by the video.

Musk took to Twitter to respond to the clip, and was very blasé about the footage.

He wrote: “Turns out there’s more ways to use Autopilot than we imagined. Shoulda seen it coming …”

Unsurprisingly, many Tesla fans are unimpressed by Musk’s response to the video – which could have ended in disaster.

One user replied: “This is dangerous…please all kidding aside, be clear about dangers.”

Another added: “There was a story where a driver using ‘auto pilot’ decided to look down to text.

“Guess what happened next? Yup – she KILLED someone.”

This isn’t the first time that a video of someone in a dangerous situation in a Tesla has hit the headlines.

This year alone, several videos have been posted of drivers asleep at the wheel of their Tesla car while it’s in Autopilot mode.

Elon Musk posts ‘irresponsible’ tweet about couple who filmed themselves bonking in a self-driving …

TESLA boss Elon Musk has responded to a dangerous porn clip in which a couple risk their lives by having sex in one of his firm’s self-driving cars.

TESLA boss Elon Musk has responded to a dangerous porn clip in which a couple risk their lives by having sex in one of his firm’s self-driving cars.

The smutty video was posted to a major adult site last week and shows porn star Taylor Jackson, 19, and her boyfriend getting it on in the front seat of their Tesla as it steers itself at high speed down a US highway.

The stunt flagrantly ignored Tesla’s strict rules for its “Autopilot mode”, which allows its electric cars to steer and brake for you.

The firm urges drivers to keep both hands on the wheel at all times in case things go wrong – though CEO Musk, 47, seems to have his own ideas.

In response to Taylor’s filthy clip, the eccentric billionaire tweeted: “Turns out there’s more ways to use Autopilot than we imagined.”

He added: “Shoulda seen it coming …”

The raunchy video has garnered 2million views since it was uploaded to adult site PornHub last week.

In the clip, the Taylor and her boyfriend, who live in Los Angeles, California, get hot and heavy for ten minutes while their £75,000 Tesla Model X careens past people’s homes on autopilot mode.

Musk’s failure to condemn the rompers for their high-speed antics was branded “irresponsible” by some fans.

One tweeter wrote: “This is dangerous … All kidding aside, be clear about the dangers.”

Another reminded the billionaire, whose tweets have landed him in hot water in the past, of deaths caused by inattention while using Autopilot.

“There was a story where a driver using ‘auto pilot’ decided to look down to text,” they tweeted.

“Guess what happened next? Yup – she KILLED someone.”

Musk’s comments follow a tricky 12 months for the business mogul in which his Twitter antics have landed him with dozens of controversies and a $20million lawsuit from the SEC.

The South African is currently facing a defamation case after he famously called a hero British diver who helped rescue children from a flooded cave in Thailand a “pedo guy” on Twitter.

Tesla has not yet released an official statement on Taylor’s raunchy video.

Taylor explained why she recorded the clip in an interview last week.

“Earlier this year I was on a road trip with my boyfriend and he asked me to have sex with him while driving,” she told The Register.

 The billionaire was urged to be more careful about how dangerous the stunt was

“We both thought it was hot and joked about doing it again and putting it on PornHub. We thought someone had to have done it before so we looked it up, but we couldn’t find a single video.

“A few weeks later I signed up for a PornHub account and this video was one of the first few videos I made.”

However, the amateur star warned the risky romp almost cost her and her boyfriend their lives.

“I have experienced Autopilot a lot so I did feel safe,” she said.

“Most of the highway we were on was straight. We did have one scare where I hit the steering wheel and knocked it out of Autopilot mode.

“I wouldn’t recommend it since it is dangerous.”

‘Shoulda seen it coming’: Elon Musk seems pretty relaxed that a couple filmed a porno in a Tesla …

Last week, a couple had sex in a moving Tesla which was on Autopilot, and they uploaded it to Pornhub. Elon Musk, Tesla’s founder, responded to the …

Elon Musk has responded to the porn film a couple uploaded to Pornhub last week, which shows them having sex in a moving Tesla vehicle on Autopilot.

While not referencing the video directly, Musk posted on Twitter, “Turns out there’s more ways to use Autopilot than we imagined,” adding “shoulda seen it coming …”

A follower replied to the tweets, saying “Tesla is S3XY after all,” to which Musk said: “Basically begging for it.”

When another asked whether there were still plans to drive from New York City to LA on full Autopilot, Musk joked how that journey would have “a different age rating.”

“We could have gamed an LA/NY Autopilot journey last year, but when we do it this year, everyone with Tesla Full Self-Driving will be able to do it too,” he said, more seriously.

Last week, Taylor Jackson, an adult entertainer, and her boyfriend filmed themselves having sex in a moving Tesla and uploaded it to the adult website PornHub.

Tesla’s Autopilot isn’t a fully driverless system yet, and the company’s website states that the driver should still have their hands on the wheel and be “prepared to take over at any time.”

Jackson told INSIDER she wasn’t afraid, however, although she did bump the steering wheel and knock the car out of Autopilot at one point in the video.

“It was mainly a straight road, but it had a lot of traffic,” she said. “We had a lot of cars driving by us.”

Tesla hasn’t commented publicly on the video yet, but it’s unlikely to condone such behavior, or make light of it like it’s CEO Musk. Tesla is involved in legal proceedings relating to the safety of the Autopilot feature.

An Apple engineer called Walter Huang died in March 2018 when his Tesla Model X crashed on a California highway. His family is suing Tesla, because the car was in Autopilot when it crashed. The suit alleges Autopilot is “defective in its design.”

In a blog published by Tesla shortly afterwards, the company stated Huang “received several visual and one audible hands-on warning earlier in the drive,” to remind him to put his hands back on the wheel.

Musk recently said in an interview that Tesla’ Autopilot could be safe for people to drive hands-free by the end of this year.

INSIDER has contacted Tesla for comment.

Self-driving cross-country trip possible for everyone with a Tesla this year, says Musk

Today, CEO Elon Musk pushed that timeline forward a bit, and stated that Tesla’s long-planned autonomous cross-country roadtrip would actually …

Tesla has been making bold claims about future autonomous driving plans lately, most recently holding an “autonomy investor event” where the company laid out plans for its future full self-driving technology. At that event, Tesla stated that they would be ready to roll out a fully autonomous robotaxi fleet as early as next year, depending on regulations.

Today, CEO Elon Musk pushed that timeline forward a bit, and stated that Tesla’s long-planned autonomous cross-country roadtrip would actually occur later this year. Tesla has made claims in the past about enabling cross-country Autopilot travel, but the news today is that not only will it be possible for Tesla to do this on their own to demonstrate their technology, but that any Tesla owner (*with FSD software) will be able to do the same.

In previous mentions of the cross-country roadtrip, Musk has stated that Tesla could use specialized software to get the roadtrip done, but that it would be “cheating” to do so. Surely, picking the right roads, writing software specific to certain situations, would make the job much easier. But making a generalized solution for self-driving is much harder, as there will be many more unexpected situations and poorly-marked offramps in the real world.

So Tesla has pushed back plans for an LA-NY roadtrip until the software is ready without needing special code.

Until now, we’ve expected that this roadtrip would occur on a private, internal build of Tesla’s software, and that it would be used to help development, and for demonstration purposes, and that perhaps the software to enable it wouldn’t be fully available to the public until later. The last time we heard about it, it was going to happen on “alpha” software – which owners do not have access to.

But today Musk suggested that this software will be available to everyone by the end of this year:

We could have gamed an LA/NY Autopilot journey last year, but when we do it this year, everyone with Tesla Full Self-Driving will be able to do it too

— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) May 9, 2019

Tesla and Musk are no stranger to short timelines, but this one seems shorter than most. In less than 8 months, not only will Tesla be able to do a demonstration drive across country, but the public will be able to do it as well.

A lot needs to be done before then. Autopilot still doesn’t stop for stop signs and red lights (though it does recognize them), only recently stopped requiring driver confirmation for lane changes, and still has trouble with some things like stationary vehicles. It also still requires that drivers keep their hands on the wheel. The FSD computer has only recently rolled out and tens of thousands of cars will need to be retrofit before “everyone” has this capability.

Some even still think that Tesla’s approach is unsustainable, with most of the rest of the industry thinking LIDAR is necessary to make full self-driving happen. But as we’ve recently reported, at least one AI expert agrees that Tesla has a huge lead in software. And a recent study by Cornell states that cameras should be enough for autonomous driving. Musk, for his part, thinks any company that relies on LIDAR as a crutch is “doomed…doomed!

Questions still remain over whether this drive will be a “zero-intervention” drive where the driver just never touches the wheel (but still, for example, puts the car in park, plugs the car in, etc.), or if it will be a “simulated headless” drive where the driver is only inside the car for regulatory purposes but the car otherwise acts as if nobody is in it. The latter was promised in 2016 when Musk stated that within two years (by 2018), owners would be able to use Tesla’s “summon” feature to have the car pick them up on the other side of the country, even recharging itself along the way.

Electrek’s Take

We’ve heard these promises many times before, and Tesla has missed many timelines before. Musk himself acknowledges that he’s sometimes optimistic with timelines, and this seems like another one which seems quite optimistic.

But about a year before Tesla’s original 2014 release of Autopilot, the Model S had zero driver-assist/active safety features at all, and Musk said that Tesla would be ahead of the industry in autonomous driving in a year. Nobody believed it at the time, but this statement eventually came true – and it was even on time. And Tesla has maintained their lead in driver-assist software since then.

So this could go either way. They might pull it off this time, but I’m not counting on it yet. I’d love to see it though, and if it happens, I guess a roadtrip will be in order.
