Tesla could soon make that a reality if a recent Twitter post from Elon Musk is anything to go by. The founder of the electric car company answered one Twitter user’s question of “Will we get KITT like AI [artificial intelligence] in @Tesla cars any time soon?” with a simple “Yes”. For those unfamiliar, KITT – an acronym for ‘Knight Industries Two Thousand’ – was the name of the very communicative Pontiac Firebird driven by David Hasselhoff’s character Michael Knight in the original Knight Rider TV series.

Sergeant Tracy Frost, a school resource officer, had noticed a hopped-up pickup truck with a high-school kid at the wheel last week. The driver noticed the cop, looked him dead-square in the eyes, and proceeded to light ’em up…the rear tires, boiling, in front of the school cop. That takes shiny brass ones…or overconfidence bolstered by a slight oversight.

Sunroofs have garnered a lot of popularity in India in the last few years. In terms of practicality, sunroofs are pretty pointless in a country like India, where temperatures remain extreme almost throughout the 12 months of the year.
