Wow, gotta get me some of those rose-colored history glasses. The auto industry has a rich history of poorly planned and executed products that were crap. Remember the infamous Chevrolet Corvair? How about Chrysler K-cars? AMC Gremlin?Right now, you are spot on. That said ...
Anyhow, back to the principle of things ... I agree with chow in principle. I am old enough to be disdained with Silicon Valley mentality. While they infuriate me while being forced to use their products to work, it worries me even more when they want to cross-breed with products that were always traditionally planned well, projects executed in 5 years span and very, very thouroghly tested before being unleashed to unsuspecting public.
Reason being, there were no "updates" or "improvements" to cover for brainless planning and fundamental lack of understanding of laws of nature - the second law of thermodynamics to start with. Just my opinion, of course.

Lack of updates sure wasn't a bonus feature for them.
And like it not, all modern cars have extensive electronics, networks, and multiple computers inside. You may think cars designed by computer guys are scary, but I promise you that's not half as scary as computer security designed by car guys.
Car hacking is a real concern, but if anything Tesla is likely more secure than cars from the major manufacturers. They're all getting better, but the car companies have been very slow to secure their systems.
