    Please, it's a 21st century car; it's gotta be lasers.

    I agree. You need lasers to shoot down someone else's missiles. We have to think practically and still keep the 5 star safety rating.

    Fine. But the missiles can't be gas powered; that's not renewable. Not that missiles are....

    I assumed we were talking about biodegradable missiles.

    Add a biodegradable missile interceptor, and use the resulting bio matter to power the Mr. Fusion.

    smorgasbord's list was pretty comprehensive. My biggest wish is for adaptive cruise control. Also really liked the +30% regen with slider control.

    Interesting that the majority of posters in this banished (by doug) off-topic thread are themselves moderators.

    Getting an IP-address no longer entails giving out your ICBM address, so you're reasonably safe.

    I want a 3 phase 63A CEE power plug. Model S as stationary aux power source for emergencies. How cool would that be? In case of backup power outage, get a dozen Model S to power NYC university hospital. Shuffle them every hour to get new juice.

    For me it would be enough AWD, ACC, ventilated front seats and 400 mi range :) Do I ask too much? :)

    I want an LCD message banner across the top (or bottom) of the rear window. So I can give nice (or maybe not so nice) messages to the people behind me!

    Oh I was thinking ~4" Tall, full window width. And with 'on the fly' programming changes.

    So after an aggressive pass on the right, I could put "MOVE RIGHT -->" on there right as I get back in front!

    And now we have a little more insight into why Bonnie shifted to X (more room for missile storage).
