Mutual Mobile revealed a concept app for the Tesla Model S.

This app adds physics accurate engine sounds to the Tesla Model S, but it doesn’t end there.

Using the Model S touchscreen, Tesla drivers can choose from a muscle car, motorcycle, airplane, and even a spaceship and have it seamlessly piped through the vehicle’s speakers.

Fun, right?

The Tesla Model S Can Now Have the Rumble of a Gas Engine with Help from Mutual Mobile

Drivers of the Tesla Model S can now simulate the physics accurate sound of a gas engine muscle car, motorcycle, fighter jet or spaceship thanks to the 3rd party developer Mutual Mobile. The proliferation of “apps for cars” like the Tesla Gas Engine app will create new business models as the connected car soon becomes standard.

Today, Mutual Mobile who helps companies expand their business using IoT, Virtual Reality, and other emerging technologies unveiled the first 3rd party concept app for the Tesla. This app adds physics accurate engine sounds to the Tesla Model S. Using the Tesla Model S Touchscreen drivers can select from a muscle car, motorcycle, airplane, and even a spaceship and have it seamlessly piped through the vehicle’s speakers.

“Internet being built into vehicles represents never before possible business models for the automotive industry. The Tesla Model S was the first car that actually gets better after you purchase it through software updates. Soon 3rd party software developers will revolutionize the car the same way they did for the smartphone,” said Mutual Mobile’s Chairman, John Arrow.

To demonstrate this possibility Mutual Mobile created a concept app called Tesla Gas Engine. This tongue & cheek app makes use of Tesla’s Touchscreen web browser for the app’s driver interface and the iPhone 6S built in accelerometer & GPS for telemetry. Then the simulated engine roar is output via the car’s Bluetooth speakers with acoustic accuracy.

So, you need an iPhone 6S… and I only have a 6 Plus.

Bummer.

They made concept app. It not available for any model phone ATM.

Holy smokes coming out of that barbecue joint, but that’s Texas for you. I like the space ship one.

While a smokey BBQ joint would indeed not be abnormal, those are actually water misters to help cool people down. Source: I was just at Guerro’s last week

Wish you owned an exotic supercar? Now you can with XLR8!
XLR8 on the App Store – iTunes – Apple

I tried XLR8, and it just has too much lag.

I wish Tesla add an option for some fake engine sounds, since they have access to the actual throttle and speed.

I’ve had several people say after I took them for a ride, that the car was amazing, but they would miss the engine revving. Adding it would be trivial, and it would make them happy 🙂

The beauty of an EV is it doesn’t make noise. In fact the industry needs to work on reducing the wind an rolling tire noise.

People who live near motorways just love the assclowns who run illegal open exhausts.

Yay next have a smoke generator and maybe a horseappledropper to fully emulate legacy cars ?

I prefer listening to music 🙂

How dumb.

How super dumb.

We finaly had noise ferre vehicle and now someone found a way to make them noisy…

How super extra dumb…

It’s not dumb if it gets more people to switch to electric.

It does not have to make noise outside the car, just through the stereo for the drives enjoyment.

Err… I’m sure this might appeal to those that have a fetish for the sound their gas burner makes, (and there are more than a few!) but please. You can buy a real muscle car for $40,000 less. And those that want one, will.

I’ve heard this same thing proposed by so many idiot “inventors” that I just smile and nod now.
