are you crazy? turning up the AC? 90 degree in Las vegas? 1pm at noon?Your car is more likely to go up in flames then needing a warm-up!Lets just say, you getta make sure your have enough coolant in the engine and make sure you change the oil!

No. Even if it was cold outside you wouldn't need to. Modern fuel injected cars are designed to operate without first waiting for the engine to warm up. Perfectly fine for it.

As long as you give it a few seconds to build up oil pressure before you put a load on the engine, you are fine.

well, modern cars need not to be kept till it gets warm because enough systems are in place to warm the car to the operating temperature if environment does not supports it. However, its a good idea to let the car run for a little while till the engine oil runs through the engine. However if it's a daily driver, you can safely assume there aren't any oil clogs and therefore the oil circulation will be on immediate basis. At the same time if you kept the car parked for a long time, it's always better to run in the idle speed for a while before you drive off.
