New fart sound app integration is Tesla’s way of celebrating the holidays
You always knew your Tesla was missing something, right? You couldn’t figure it out, but the car just wasn’t quite living up to its full potential?

It was hard to believe on Saturday when Musk tweeted, “Tesla *wind emoji* app almost done. Important to get every note right!” that he could be suggesting that Tesla’s could be farting in the near future, but on Monday, that’s exactly what came to reality.
Tesla 💨 app almost done. Important to get every note right!
