Have any of the engineers at Tesla ever considered adding fully or partially sliding/disappearing doors to a Tesla?
In addition to the wow factor, they would help keep doors from swinging open and hitting the adjacent vehicle(s) during high winds and provide those with limited space, like a one car garage or a tight parking space, better access upon entering and exiting, and thus greater piece of mind.
To prevent the items from flying away when the doors are opened and closed extra storage via deeper pockets on the seat backs and compartments above the air vents and in the back of the rear center seat could be added.
To compensate for the missing bottle/sippy cup/thermos holders the car could include a cup holder mounted at or near the front passenger's left calf or foot.
The elbow ledges could rotate towards the passengers so the ledges do not jam in the doors when opening and closing.
Finally, such doors would greatly help emergency personnel, especially while inside the Boring company tunnels and other such structures, by providing them with an unobstructed opening. Such doors would allow them to extract the driver and passengers much more quickly and efficiently, possibly even reducing the need to reach for the jaws of life.

To further the safety measures the cars should also include an OnStar accident type of feature, where a Tesla Roadside Assistance Representative calls the vehicles in the case of an collision.
I have not been in a collision since owning my Model 3, so disregard if this is already a feature.
