34 Ways To Soup Up Your Current Car With Tech

When I was a kid, my two sets of grandparents each had what I considered some high-tech 1970s gadgetry in their cars. One had a compass stuck to the windshield, a little floating ball that swiveled like BB-8 to show us the direction in which we traveled. The other had a talking Chrysler that would voice warnings such as "The door...is ajar!" or "Your directional signal is...still on!"

And that's just the start. Modern high-tech cars should be laden with tech safety features, methods of connecting to the outside world, full diagnostics, and ways to keep passengers entertained.

Thankfully, there is a massive aftermarket of gadgets and add-ons that work with just about any existing vehicle on the road today. Here's our deep dive into the tech you can add to your old jalopy to make it feel a bit more Tesla-esque.
