In Spain, a Tesla Model 3 has helped in finding a stolen Porsche 911, reported by autoblog. The Model 3 recorded thieves stealing the classic Porsche 964 911 Carrera 2, by breaking into it and rolling it out quietly whilst it was in neutral. After this, the owner of the Model 3 gave the owner of the 911 the footage of the thieves, which was posted on twitter.
Porsche Carrera 2, matricula 2397DBK robado en Benicassim, Castellón, anoche a las 3:20 AM. Va a ser complicado, pero si alguien sabe algo o conoce a alguien en el video o fotos, mis DMs están abiertos.

The 911 was found just outside Valencia after someone had seen it there and reported it to the police. The whole operation took less than 24 hours and if it wasn’t for the Tesla, the owner of the 911 would not have got his beloved car back.
The Tesla was parked up and had Sentry mode activated, which records any potential threats close to the car whilst it’s on standby. This is so it can protect itself against theft and provide evidence within cases such as vandalism or accidents.
However, it seems Sentry mode has become very useful in stopping other crimes or helping them out. Earlier this month, a Tesla parked in sentry mode helped solve an unsolved murder in Norway.
