How about this:
Police departments get the largest battery size car available (around 300 miles). Could the Model 3 ~500ft front radar and 360 degree sonar be adapted to serve as a police interceptor? Like monitor losers who are speeding and automatically identify them with the Model 3 built in cameras? Could the battery supply enough power for the various police support gear in the car and greatly reduce operational costs with fuel and maintenance? Could the Tesla cars battery resist shootings?
At $35K (plus cost of a bigger battery) this seems to me a real possibility. If so, expect line to get a Model 3 increase some more...
