Like most modern cars now they have keyless fobs. Will the model S have this? Theres articles about keyless fob hacking to gain access to the car. Either way a car can be broken into or even fooled into letting someone in that thinks its the owner.
I know other EV cars have apps on there phone to tell you how much charge your battery has, but could there be an app for the model S that has this function, but also tell you that your car is active? Possibly have a security feature thats password locked that sends a kill switch message to your car?
And an abstract idea that, well maybe you're at a party and get pushed into the pool by some overzealous friends. Your fob gets ruined but, your phone is saved (just for the sake of the phone not getting in the drink too) so you could use your app to open the door and start the car remotely.
Just a few ideas that could be implemented mayhaps.
