Extinction Level Event: 5G.  Death by the trillions
Actually, they did make a VW Bug that had excellent heat in the winter. It had a gas burner under the rear seat and it would blow hot air almost right away. It was hell on your fuel economy, and didn't smell so good either. But, up here in Canada during the winters we used to have, it was a wonderful option.

I really dont care about the IoT, as I think most of it is pure rubbish.
There are several useful applications where IoT can come in handy. Most of what is being suggested however is unneeded, unwanted or flat out scary.......self driving cars linked together over the cell network is the biggie......hundreds of cars zooming down the interstate on autopilot relying on their cell signals, and the network hiccups.....worse than a loose semi truck in an ice storm.

A high school friend had a 1959 VW bug. The heat came from a shroud around the cylinder head. An oil leak made using the heater a rather stinky ride.....but still better than a leaky head gasket. Fortunately we lived in Miami Florida where you might need heat one or two days a year.........having the battery spark up the rear seat where I was sitting......that will heat your backside in a hurry.
Tubelab, it's 5 year mission. To explore strange new tubes, to seek out new circuits and topologies, to boldly go where no tube has gone before......

No, my '77 Suzy 550 4 cylinder was 4 stroke. As I recall, there was a 550 3 cylinder 2 stroke, I suspect that is the one you are thinking of?
I hate all these smart gadgets..I refuse to buy things that are smarter than me. I've made a list of those things... Cabbage just made the list.

If you think that billions are the same as trillions, then what does that say about your assessment of risk??

I had one of those. During college, in Buffalo NY. I got really, really drunk at a party one winter, made my way to the VW and switched on the under the bonnet gas heater, then proceeded to pass out. I woke several hours later, warm as toast, then drove back to my apartment.

The next time I turned it on the whole car immediately filled with the most obnoxious fumes. I pulled over immediately, opened the bonnet. There was a flexible hose that carried the exhaust fumes outside, exiting into the left wheel well. It had disintegrated and was now exhausting directly under the bonnet - and into the car. I could have just never woke up previously. One of those "but why was there only one set of footprints" kind of things.

These days, maybe my 5G personal carbon monoxide monitor (paid subscription service) could have alerted someone and provided GPS coordinates and driving instructions to come save me!

My best friend in high school had one of those Suzuki 500 two strokes, I swear it was a twin. For some reason I could do the longest burn out patch with that thing - I recall another friend wrecking on his Honda 750 in attempt to beat the length I put down with it. I dont know what it was about that bike, but it seemed I could spin the rear tire on pavement indefinitely.
