New product releases coming on KnightDriveTV Youtube channel!

C5 and C6 Corvette Tesla-style Screen Kit with HVAC and steering wheel controls

Since the middle of 2022, KnightDriveTV has been working on developing a "Tesla-style" screen kit, that can be installed cleanly into the C5 1997-2004 and C6 2005-2013 Corvette platform.  The decision was made, due to demand signals, to create the C6 kit first, for release in spring 2023, with the C5 kit targeted for summer 2023.

The pictures below show the initial development of the hardest part, which was a fully molded bezel replacement and console, to allow the screen to fit like OEM.  The part was made by hand, 3D scanned, then prepared for injection molding and now molding has been completed.

Pictured here, is the pre-production kit with just a simple carbon wrap, to create the screen mounting kit and other small wiring details.

In preparation for this mod, I decided to ask the AI system what it thought.  Our conversation is below:

Ask Chat: What is the allure to the Tesla center console large screen interface?

AI Answer:  There are several reasons why the Tesla center console's large screen interface is alluring to many people:

  1. User-Friendly Interface: The Tesla center console's interface is designed to be user-friendly, with large icons and intuitive controls that make it easy for drivers to access the car's various features and settings.

  2. High Resolution Display: The center console's display is high resolution, making it easy to read even small text or graphics. This also ensures that the interface looks sharp and clear, enhancing the overall user experience.

  3. Integration with Car Systems: The center console is integrated with various car systems, including the climate control, music, and navigation. This allows drivers to control all of these features from a single, convenient location.

  4. Regular Updates: Tesla regularly updates the center console's software, adding new features and improving the existing ones. This ensures that the interface remains current and relevant, providing a better user experience over time.

  5. Unique Experience: The large screen interface is unique to Tesla cars, making the driving experience feel more futuristic and cutting-edge. This can be a major draw for people who want to own a car that feels like it's ahead of its time.

Ask Chat: Is it likely that other car enthusiasts would like a Tesla style screen adapted to their car?

AI Answer: 

It's possible that other car enthusiasts would like a Tesla-style screen adapted to their car. The large screen interface of Tesla cars is known for being intuitive, user-friendly, and providing a unique driving experience. As a result, some car enthusiasts may find it appealing to have a similar system in their own vehicle.

However, it's important to note that the integration of a large screen interface into a car's design can be a complex process. It requires careful consideration of the car's size and shape, as well as its existing features and systems. Additionally, the implementation of a large screen interface may require significant modifications to the car's dashboard and other interior components, which could be costly and time-consuming.

Therefore, while some car enthusiasts may be interested in having a Tesla-style screen in their car, it may not be feasible or practical for all vehicles. Nonetheless, as technology continues to evolve, it's possible that we will see more cars with large, high-resolution screens and user-friendly interfaces in the future.
