Hyundai Wants You To Overclock Your Car With Your Phone

As a tech enthusiast, overclocker and the owner of seventies muscle car with a massive amounts of horsepower and torque, I think this is a bad idea.

If your next car is electric, you might be able to tune its performance on the move using a smartphone app, and trade profiles with other drivers. Hyundai's new system will pair your phone with your car, and let you tweak settings including the maximum speed, acceleration and deceleration abilities, regenerative braking, ignition, and maximum torque output.
