Any news of a valet mode, especially for the P85D?

    If there was a car that needed a valet mode, it would be the P85D and I was wondering if we can expect to see a rollout of a valet mode by the time it ships in December.

    + Limit engine performance/acceleration to that of a Toyota Yaris.
    + Lock out glove box, frunk, and trunk.
    + Lock out audio and entertainment system. Maybe just lock out the entire 17" display with just a moving map showing where you are.
    + Send alert if vehicle driven for more than 5 miles or speed exceeds 45 mph (user settable).
    + Lock out being able to turn off vehicle monitoring/remote access.
    + Prominent message "Valet Mode: All vehicle activity monitored and recorded."

    And SCs should automatically place vehicles on Valet Mode unless they are testing something with the car.

    I feel this is a must, especially given the only fatality in a Model S was caused by an unauthorized driver.
