Watch thieves steal a Tesla Model S with a key fob hack
Tesla vehicles are jam-packed with advanced technologies and stringent security measures, but the cars still aren't 100% safe from crafty thieves intent on stealing one. To that point, security cam footage uploaded to YouTube over the weekend shows two thieves stealing a Tesla Model S in England, albeit with a little bit of difficulty.
The owner, who wrote about the incident via a tweet to Elon Musk, said that the thieves used a tablet and a phone to grab the signal transmitted by the Model S's key fob, an attack that is becoming more and more popular with each passing year. Somewhat comically, the pair of thieves initially couldn't figure out how to disengage the car's charging cable, thus prolonging what was supposed to be a quick getaway.
