The Model X is clearly designed to be a family car. With the expectation that families will have teenage drivers, I would love to see a lot of governor features. For example, if my son wants to borrow the car to go to his friend's house, I'd like to be able to set the maximum speed to 35 mph. I remember being a teenager, and if I were put behind the steering wheel of a Model X, I probably wouldn't be alive.
Even more than that, there is no reason why the car shouldn't provide on option to forbid speeding altogether. Using existing technology, the car can know what the speed limit is where ever it happens to be (with few exceptions).
Each driver would have a username and password to unlock his specific set of features/constraints. Once a driver is identified, the radio station and volume could be set to his/her preferences, along with climate control, seat position, mirror position, etc....
