Teslas keep troves of drivers' personal data, even after they're scrapped – or resold

A Tesla enthusiast hacker has discovered Tesla's onboard computers keep more data than they let on, and proved that data isn't wiped when a crashed car gets junked – or even when it's reconditioned and resold.

Reconditioned Teslas carry the traces of their former owners, from personally identifying contact information to hours of footage of the driver staring blankly ahead as they navigate the road, according to GreenTheOnly, a pseudonymous "white-hat" hacker and Tesla owner who revealed the extent of Tesla's data-hoarding to CNBC. None of that data is encrypted.
