    We all know how Tesla has profiles for different drivers as well as "Valet Mode". My assumption with the Model 3 is that it'll be more of a family car than a sports/luxury/leisure car. To clarify, with the high price tag of the Roadster, Model S and Model X, parents may not want their children to drive their car (for an unfortunate example, the teen in Germany who recently took the family's Model S and crashed it). I understand they are the safest cars on the road and they are fantastic to drive. However, I know for a fact if my parents would own a 100,000$ car, I would only get to drive it to my prom and on my birthday... :( :)

    With that being said, I believe parents would be more willing to let their children or others drive their Model 3...

    So, why doesn't Tesla release an "administrator" option for the owner? Like with a computer, a parent could set up a profile for their child with limitations and restrictions (similar to Valet Mode). Already through the amazing app, you can see the location of your vehicle and I believe even the speed. Not to sound too "big brother-ish" but I think it would be great if Tesla owners could have even more control of their vehicle (excluding autopilot of course :) ).

    This can be applied to all models but maybe it would be more relevant with the Model 3.

    Let me know what you think.

    I certainly hope that more configurable options can be applied to all the Teslas... It's been requested for a while.

    They have a pretty comprehensive idea of driver profiles today. There are things missing and this concept of different classes of user is missing too. I don't think it would be too hard for them to add this sort of stuff given what they already have.
