    Yeah, I agree. That said, I've reviewed the design studio, and I'm not so convinced that it's all that bad. Look at the text from the website:
    Of those items, we already have the first two; the second we have, but requires simple input; the third we don't fully have, although it's pretty close, and not that of an imposition when it happens; the fourth is a variant of the third, and the fifth and sixth we already have. AP 2.0 may be better at those items, but the Enhanced Autopilot really is just an enhanced version of what we already have.

    Now the Full autonomy is where the excitement is, as the driver no longer needs to be in the car, or can be in the car but not able to drive (sleeping, drunk, etc.) While it's very exciting that this could be coming, they are at the mercy of the regulatory environment here. Will it take years for this to be approved, or will it move faster? The standard for camera rear-view mirror systems took 5 years to develop at the ISO, and the NHTSA hasn't yet adopted those standards into US law. For those of us with existing S and X cars, we could be ready to replace the cars about the time that full autonomy is actually and finally legal for these Teslas.
