Billionaire Elon Musk has hinted at developing technology that will support conversational interaction with Tesla cars.
The speculation began when a Twitter user asked Musk: “Will we get K.I.T.T. like A.I. in @Tesla cars any time soon ? I’d love a lil’ computer dude I could talk to in my #PerformanceModel3.”

To those unaware, KITT or Knight Industries Two Thousand is the classic futuristic car seen in the 1980’s show Knight Rider.
To this, Musk replied with a single “Yes”, leaving the fans struggling for clues as to how AI would be integrated into a Tesla car.
“The future is accelerating,” Musk later wrote on Twitter.
