Musk also tweeted about adding coconut sound as part of Tesla’s customisation exercise.

“Customised horn & movement sounds (coconuts being one, of course) coming to Teslas soon,” Musk tweeted.

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.
