My g/f and I got into a discussion last night about what it takes to drive the S. She is mostly afraid of wrecking it, and won't drive it herself for a multitude of reasons. She also said "would you let your 16 year old drive it?", which is a hypothetical because I'm 28 and have no kids... but I had to give it some thought! Here were my pros and cons for young drivers, and I was interested in people's opinions, as I'm sure some of you out there are parents with kids in the "new driving range": Pros: Incredibly Safe Can see where the car is at all times, along with speeds and general acceleration info through the app Can control the car in some capacity (mom i lost my keys!) through the app Large, easily visible to other drivers Lots of tech for "improved" driving (collision assistance, lane departure, etc) Good hauling capacity for any activities, instead of loaning the family SUV out! Ability to limit speed and acceleration through Valet mode *obvious Tesla benefits like no gas and superchargers Cons: Expensive, to own AND replace AND fix Large, hard to know boundaries of the vehicle Lots of tech for "distracted" driving Fast and powerful, if no valet limiter is used One of the things I thought was most interesting as a pro, was enabling valet mode for teenage driving. I'm sure there are some cons to that, or it would make a parent uncomfortable, but it seemed like a creative way to place a governor on the vehicle without impeding its ability to function. Thoughts?
