    I thought I remember reading that earlier Autopilot production included fewer sensors and later they increased it to 12, is that true or do all Tesla produced since Oct 2014 have the same hardware?

    Can someone with an earlier production Autopilot (Oct-Dec 2014) confirm they have 12 sensors?

    I have an early autopilot P85+, what 12 sensors are you expecting?

    October 2014 signature build. 12 sonar sensors, 1 forward camera. 4 sonar sensors forward, 4 backward and 1 in each fender facing sideways.

    Since sometime in late September 2014: 12 ultrasonics, 1 forward camera, 1 forward radar (and the rear camera all cars have, it is not known if Tesla is using that camera in some way to assist Autopilot).
