It isn't really a threat just because it is possible. It is far easier to nobble a standard car.
My only concern is that these newer cars are not controlled directly by the driver but by a computer accepting commands from the driver, amongst other sources.

Cars are not aircraft. The driver needs feedback from the steering, for instance, to judge the road conditions.
This is very complex subject and hacking may prove to be the least of our concerns.
