Future Proofing

Considering how techno-centric the Model S is and how long most of us are planning to keep our new piece of history (10 years for me), is anyone else worried about the user experience in a vehicle centered around a 10 year old computer? It's one thing to deal with a digital speedometer or A/C control panel after a decade but how will I run the latest Tesla apps of 2023 on a 2012 motherboard? Hopefully someone out there has spoken to a Tesla rep that has reassured them this has been accounted for. If so, please reassure me!

How a 2012 car that do 30 mpg will look in 2023 vs one that do 89 empg or more? Or how a gallon of gas will cost in 2023 vs a kwh?

I'm reading this on a 2002 2.8GHz P4.

I plan to install a flux capacitor as soon as they become available. That should future-proof it pretty well. (saw a Delorean in my neighborhood last night).

then leave a note for yourself to come back from some point after finding out what that "ace" is and let the rest of us know!

All kidding aside, I think joesontesla makes a fair point. I haven't heard anything about such a feature, and I'll bet TM would be touting it if it were part of the design. I am more curious to know if we will be able to swap in a higher density battery in the future. It seems to me this will be a much bigger issue than processor speed for those of us who still have our cars in 10 years' time.

I have little doubt that in 10 years your “S” will perform as designed, the battery and performance will be down a bit. I am sure TM would prefer you to trade in your “old jalopy.” After all, TM is in the business of designing and selling the cars you dream about.

TM is in the business of changing the world. Elon has said it many times. I have no doubt that in 10 years we will have several high density battery drop in options. The skateboard chassis should have a much longer life.

Will it still acelerate as fast in 10 years? Yeah. Since I can load the equivalent of Win8 (like a 10 year old computer today to make it boot in 20 seconds or less) on it plus a new battery and maybe a better motor, new inverter oe even a lower ratio gearbox.

When purchasing any "technology" product, the best way to "future proof" is to never read another magazine/web site/review once you've made the purchase. Waiting two years always brings about major improvements at a lower price. Of course, there's not many, including me, who can actually do this.

I'm hoping the larger battery packs become available for the current generation skateboard design in roughly 10 years, but if they don't I'm still ok with 70% of the power available on an 85Kwh battery pack.

Regarding running the web apps of the future on the Tegra3 chip based center console... meh, w/e. I expect the center console to provide the functionality of a smart phone, not a desktop or laptop computer. As long as it plays tunes and the apps still work in 10 years, which is highly likely, then I'm ok.

Yeah, I guess the best attitude to take is that you're taking possession of an instant original antique/relic, to be held onto for sentimental reasons. And possible profitable sale in the future as a collectable.

;-p
