    Well, it's not as possible to scale to that today. As I recall GM was producing cars for about a decade with an absurdly small number of key patterns, you had something like a one in eight chance of your key working in any given GM produced vehicle.
    That was BL.

    GM wasn't much better. They actually had way more different patterns but so many were so close to each other than you could actually open most GMs with just a few basic keys.

      A computer forensics specialist who commented on the happenings of the incident was able to narrow down just how the alleged stolen Tesla was taken with such reported ease. The person allegedly responsible for taking the car is believed to have reached out to Tesla's customer support to add the stolen Model 3 to his Tesla account by its vehicle identification number. Once the vehicle was accessible on a smartphone that was signed into this person’s account, he was reportedly able to unlock the car and drive away without ever needing a key.
      Though Tesla has the highest rate of theft recovery, it still looks to reduce the number of events which occur. Recently Tesla has addressed this problem by adding a PIN-to-drive function. This enables owners to require a PIN (in addition to a key fob or authenticated phone) before actually driving off with the vehicle.
      Good job Tesla, you have figured out the technology that Ford had on their cars since the 90s at least
