Elkann said that it would be sad to have a Ferrari self-driving car, as the essence of having a Ferrari is to drive it. Tesla CEO Elon Musk too acknowledged that.

Self-driving technology was never on the table for high-performance car manufacturers. That is exactly the opposite of their motto. Hence, Ferrari doesn't want to spoil the joy of driving for automotive enthusiasts.

Interestingly, Tesla is one of the frontrunners when it comes to implementing autonomous driving technology in its cars. The US-based electric car manufacturer introduced the famous Autopilot system in its cars. The Autopilot is dubbed as an autonomous driving system, but in reality, it is a semi-autonomous driver-assist technology.

The Autopilot technology has made several headlines because of the mishaps that involved this system.

Tesla is currently working on fully self-driving technology. Besides that several other carmakers such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo too are working on similar technology, where the vehicles will be able to take care of the driving task autonomously.
