Owning a Tesla car has its own perks it seems, well beyond its high-tech features like autopilot and pretty much everything else you would expect from a car this expensive! Well, you can now do something with your Tesla car that you clearly didn't imagine before, especially when you were shelling out your hard-earned money on this machine. As per the IANS report, Tesla car owners will soon have the option to choose sounds like farting or goat noise for their vehicles' pedestrian noisemakers and horns. Of course, that's obviously not the reason why you bought the Tesla car in the first place, isn't it? Elon Musk also tweeted about adding coconut sound as part of Tesla's customisation exercise.
"Customized horn & movement sounds (coconuts being one, of course) coming to Teslas soon," Musk tweeted.

But Musk did not stop there. Musk also teased goat bleats, rushing wind and coconut horse clops from the comedy movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. In another tweet, Musk also mentioned adding a whoopie cushion noise (made famous by Tesla's "Toilet Humor" mode) and a goat noise, reports Teslarati.

The noisemakers have been described both positively and negatively by consumers in their reviews, but "the addition of the sounds will keep pedestrians safe in the long run". Tesla has reportedly started rolling out a pedestrian noisemaker for the Model 3 sedan. The noisemakers are designed to emit a sound while vehicles are moving below 30 kms in forward and reverse. They have reportedly been installed on Model 3 units that were built since September 1. The US Pedestrian Safety Enhancement Act 2010 states that electric vehicles must have an audible sound at speeds below 30 kms to warn pedestrians of their presence.
Earlier, Elon Musk unveiled a new SpaceX spacecraft designed to carry a crew and cargo to the moon or Mars and land back on Earth. In fact, it could carry crew and cargo to literally anywhere in Solar System
