The Autonomous Car: Tesla & The Winding Road | Nerd Vittles Daily Dump | Scoop.it
We kick off 2017 with a new series on autonomous vehicles and, for the short term at least, the focus will be on Tesla simply because they’ve moved the needle the quickest and have a billion+ driver-tested miles under their belt already.

Buzz, I’m really, really hoping is the one that finally makes it, because I think it’s finally the right car at the right time. In fact, we’re at a point where I’m not sure Volkswagen has a choice not to build it.
