Could it be a spaceship-like dashboard for a Model 3?

    It looks so busy! Okay, I guess that's how space ships are since they're pretty complicated. Not sure I'd want to drive with so many distractions. Maybe if I had a co-pilot…

    I know I am in the vast minority on this...

    ...but I really like the yolk steering mechanism!

    You're dead to me ;)

    Neat concept but way too busy if you ask me. Tesla is going to take a simpler approach now that full autonomy is only about a year and a bit away.

    I agree on it being too busy. I just like the yolk.

    I know, I know...You don't even have to say it. ;)

    You think there are people blaming their Tesla now for driving into buildings now (when they hit the 'gas' instead of the brake), image the claims if there was a steering wheel no one is familiar with

    Yeah, Yeah, I get it. Having a flying background, I know that this would not pose as much of a concern as many think, but I also know that Tesla isn't going to open themselves up to unnecessary liability either. I just like how it opens up everything in front of the driver. Like I said, I know I am in the extreme minority here. Hey, a guy can dream right? ;)

    How often in a plane do you turn the wheel (yoke) 360* though? I would expect seldom, while that happens in a car multiple times per drive

    It does happen in a car but almost always at very slow speeds. Also, I wonder how many drivers actually go hand over hand to make sharp turns like that? I would think most of use the one handed "wax on/wax off" method. Not saying we should, just saying most probably do. Could be wrong on that of course.

    The drawings and initial prototypes have a simple dash with the only display being the touch screen. I think we will end up with more data display choices through a HUD but the controls will be very simple given that level 5 autopilot will be a design expectation. Given all the ways they are pushing the envelope and regulators I don't think your yoke control will be in the cards. really hoping we get part 3 of the reveal before the end of the year. I can't take these little tidbits of info followed by all the speculation. c

    Yokes in planes don't turn 360 degrees. 90 degrees at most. Source: I used to be a pilot.

    I totally get it guys. It's never going to happen. But...I would be curious to see how others make 90 degree or greater turns. It's something I never thought about until I forced myself to notice it. For me it is a one handed affair. A yolk would make no difference. Poor driving habits I guess. ;)

    The new Tesla 8.0 media player is also too busy for my tastes. I hope Tesla is listening as most owners I've spoken to agree.

    Elon said more changes were coming in 8.0.1 and 8.1. I'm sure they're listening to feedback

    Just got another software update tonight.

    Before: 8.0 (2.42.40)
    After: 8.0 (2.44.130)

    As usual release notes provide NO information on what changed so you hope that the issue that has been driving you NUTS has been fixed but have to wait to find out.

    In my case this time its the fact that the main dashboard display (speedometer...) has been freezing up intermittently. That's really not good or safe. Never happened until the first 8.0 release now has happened at least once a week and usually at the worst time.

    I have to agree with Dan On this ..I kinda like the yolk as well but since the steering is electric assist , why couldn't you get-away with only turning the yolk 90 deg. to complete a turn. Is it possible to control a car without 2 and a half turns lock to lock

    I currently drive a car with 1.5 turns lock to lock. No problem after a little bit of getting used to. I have driven a 1 turn ltl. Very sensitive but doable. .5 turn seems too sensitive to me.
    Or you would need to have speed-dependant steering; needing physical decoupling of steering wheel and front wheels. I doubt this is allowed by law.
