GTA coming to Tesla? Elon Musk teases fans

Eccentric billionaire and tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has dropped multiple hints about Grand Theft Auto being playable in a Tesla motor vehicle, in a typically bizarre set of tweets.

Elon Musk is widely known as one of Twitter’s most eccentric, and widely followed, characters. The Tesla CEO and entrepreneur can be found regularly tweeting bizarre memes and jokes, sometimes even relating to his own company.

Back in May, for example, the tech mogul wiped $14 billion off his own company’s value with a single tweet. On June 26, he turned his attention to Rockstar Games and their incredibly popular Grand Theft Auto series.

Musk is also known to be a fan of video games.

“Only a matter of time before someone steals a Tesla while playing GTA on a Tesla,” he tweeted, much to the confusion of a lot of his followers. However, he then pedaled significant interest with a single-worded follow up: “Literally”.

While there has been no official confirmation from Musk or Tesla, a host of his followers took this comment as a strong suggestion that Tesla’s will soon allow passengers to play some well-known video games while they are being used – and not just the arcade-like ones that are built into some cars now.

Musk’s company is already working to pioneer new motor vehicle technology, and this would be the latest in a long line of futuristic features.

However, the billionaire wasn’t done there, and began to meme Rockstar Games over the recently announced Grand Theft Auto V. The meme, also shared on June 26, shows Rockstar games ‘rinsing’ GTA V.

The GTA V Remaster was considered by some fans as underwhelming, as many were expecting a reveal for GTA 6. Musk appears to fall into the category, suggesting the 7-year-old game has run its course.

Whether the memes inhibit any future Tesla partnership with Rockstar remains to be seen but, with Elon Musk involved, we wouldn’t rule anything out.

Series 28 of Forza Horizon 4 saw a number of updates and changes implemented, with one of the biggest being the introduction of Horizon Backstage. We explain how to access this new area, and give a rundown of all the cars available. 

The Forza Backstage area was added to Forza Horizon 4 as part of the Series 28 update on October 13, 2020.

Allowing players access to exclusive, ultra-rare, and hard-to-find cars, the Backstage area is an exciting new addition to the game. Along with making it easier to find such rare cars, it also makes them far more accessible, as each featured vehicle only costs one ‘Backstage Pass’ rather than millions of credits.

Horizon Backstage LocationHorizon Backstage is located behind the main Horizon Festival stage.

How to access Horizon Backstage

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage can be accessed much the same as the ‘Autoshow’ in the game.

Players can either drive to the physical location found behind the main Horizon Festival Stage, or access via the ‘Autoshow’ menu.

You can also access the area via the pause menu, by selecting “Horizon Backstage” under the ‘Cars’ tab.

Horizon Backstage Car ListEach car costs 1 Backstage Pass, and is limited to one per player.

Forza Horizon 4 Backstage Passes

Each vehicle in the Backstage area is available for purchase by players. Instead of the usual method of obtaining cars via in-game credits or Forzathon points, each vehicle costs 1x Backstage Pass.

These passes are awarded to players once they reach certain milestones in Festival event playlists. Passes are not specific to particular cars, and can be used for any vehicles featured in the backstage area.

Players can also accumulate passes, as they do not have an expiry date. It is important to note, however, that each featured car is limited to only one per player.

Horizon Backstage car votingThe Forza Horizon 4 community has the opportunity to vote which cars make it to Backstage.

Horizon Backstage cars

The cars featured in Horizon Backstage are chosen via community vote. From what we can see, previous cars stick around after their initial period, and currently, players are able to access Backstage featured cars from the previous seven days.

Currently available Horizon Backstage cars:

  • 1999 Lotus Elise Series 1 Sport 190
  • 2012 Ferrari 599XX Evo
  • 1965 Hoonigan Gymkhana 10 Hoonicorn Mustang
