Hilarious 97-Year-Old Man Rides in a Tesla Model S

His reaction is as heartwarming as it is humorous.

In this clip, watch Zeb Gitalis, an Ohio-based commercial real estate broker, drive his 97-year-old grandfather in a Tesla Model S, introducing him to its signature features, including Autopilot, its battery charging, and screen-based navigational controls.

Hear Zeb’s grandfather’s endearing remarks on the lack of vehicle noise, which leads to a conversation about its instant torque (affectionately referred to as “instant power”)

?Oh boy! You gotta have a parachute to drive this car! Next thing you know we?ll be up in the air!?

Telling remarks from a man who shared the planet with Nikola Tesla for over 20 years.
