Adding a steering motor should be relatively easy/cheap.
Speaking of the department of redundancy department, adding a third coil-over ala Koenigsegg would allow them to decouple the spring and roll rates.

Going into reverse while flying down the freeway would be a software problem.

The steering was heavy on the test drive, and John mentioned that other models aren't so heavy. Still, it would be difficult for some people to wrestle control at low speeds.
I took a spin a few months back. My assessment was that the ride was harsh, as you might expect with the sprung/unsprung mass ratio, but the transient response was good (low center of gravity and low tire sidewall). Needs an air-bagged option.
. flight training we have a saying: You need to learn from the mistakes of others kid you're not going to live long enough to make them all yourself.
