Musk said that Tesla will continue to design for "legacy" drivers, even when cars go fully autonomous. That means including the same structural stability and safety mechanisms to protect the driver in case of a crash with a human-driven vehicle. But, he said, autonomous cars are a "solved problem," with only the technology standing in the way. And that will be solved in a few years.
"In the distant future it will be only outlaws driving cars," Musk said. "Because it's too dangerous. You can't have a person driving a two-ton death machine."
