Thieves steal a Tesla Model S by hacking the entry fob

A Tesla owner who recorded thieves stealing his Model S by hacking the passive entry system has published the video on YouTube so we can all watch (and learn). Tesla has recently implemented features to deter passive entry theft, but the owner sheepishly admitted he didn't use them. Tesla vehicles are rarely stolen compared to other models, but a rash of recent UK thefts may have been pulled off in a similar fashion.
