I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

Musk says Disney Plus will be added to Theater Mode "soon."

Ol' Elon is at it again, tweeting the news that Disney Plus  will soon be available in your Tesla via the car's Theater Mode. The confirmation came via a reply to the Tesla Owners of Massachusetts account on Thursday.

Part of the latest Tesla Version 10.0 update, Theater Mode uses the car's huge center screen to run streaming video from services such as Netflix, Hulu and YouTube, but only while the car is parked (and presumably charging). Hey, it's something to pass the time while you juice up at one of Tesla's Superchargers, anyway.

Of course, Musk didn't give any more information about when we'll see the service, so we can't say for sure when Disney Plus will make its way to Theater Mode. However, other replies indicate that Disney Plus content is already available anyway, so there might be a decent workaround in place for now.
