A new update of firmware in all Tesla cars (it’s up to version 9.0.2018.48.12 now, I was told) added a pair of fun and goofy easter eggs for Tesla owners to enjoy even when they’re just sitting in their Teslas in their garage, possibly onanera. The Easter Egg is called Romance Mode, Pole Position and Emission Testing Mode. The latter simulates speed.
Here’s what each new feature does:
• Romance Mode: Provides a video of a burning fireplace on the car’s LCD display (or just the display on model 3). According to the description on the screen
“Experience the warmth of our virtual fireplace with Romance Mode. To enable Romance Mode when the car is in Park, press Tesla” T “at the top of the touch screen, and then press the fireplace logotype in your Easer Egg Tray. “
• Pole Position: This is an adaptation of the iconic old-school racing game Pole Position, still in glorious, pixel-chunky 8-bit but rework with a Tesla and set on Mars. You can only play in Park, and you use the car’s steering wheel to control the car in the game.
