Others had anticipated a driverless car, among other things. Naturally, Twitter was full of responses to the unveiling:
$TSLA down 7% on news that it's built the fastest car ever that also drives itself. Because logic.

If you bought $10K of $TSLA the day Romney called it a 'loser' you'd have $85K today — enough to buy a Tesla D

Some people weren’t very excited by the new features:
I am not sure I want a car that reads speed limit signs and then goes that speed. #Tesla

If Tesla has cameras that recognize speed limit signs, could they also spot cop cars and hit the brakes in time? Asking for a friend.

Ubering a Google self-driving Tesla D in the future is going to be great.
