    Can a Tesla be disabled (& brought to a stop), as is the case with Find My iPhone?
    If not, is this feature being considered?

    On my X you could track it but I dont think it is safe it is brought to a complete stop even in a pursuit for fear of being rear ended or something like that. It would be cool if like autopilot would pull over if you dont respond.

    Can you put it into a valet mode of some sort, to limit its speed?

    Or an enhanced Valet mode, speed limit 60kmh, all lights flashing.
    In the near future, for models capable once the feature is released, doors, windows lock so thief can't get out, displays blank out, steering and pedals are unresponsive, then the car drives autonomously to nearest police station... blaring Bad Boys endlessly over the stereo.

    I think it has to be put in park before valet model will be enabled, right?
