    "automatic emergency breaking"
    So if the radar detects a threat, it activates a guillotine that automatically cuts the power feed to the motor?

    Great news but many saw it coming. We are still left with a lot of unanswered questions concerning the 3....

    So not Model 3 Part 2 after all. Only "alludes" to Model 3 Part 2 in the sense that TeslaVision hardware will be available on the 3 as well as S/X going forward, and that this was something that wasn't previously announced in Model 3 Part 1 back on March 31.

    Tesla hasn't been able to consistently autonomously park their cars without crashing into things. I'll consider this vaporware until they've actually got driverless cars running about. I'll keep driving my 2012 S in the mean time.

    "While this is occurring, Teslas with new hardware will temporarily lack certain features currently available on Teslas with first-generation Autopilot hardware, including some standard safety features such as automatic emergency breaking, collision warning, lane holding and active cruise control."

    Those features better be available by the time the Model 3 hits production or that will be a HUGE negative. These are some of the main reasons I want a Tesla.

    Not a single care for anything autonomous. I am a functioning human being. No need for that useless stuff. Blah

    I really feel for those who have just taken delivery of an S without this capability. Instant devaluation?

    I'm unbotheted. My new S is leased and my use cases for autopilot 1.0 are already limited

    My wifes M3 will have the hardware, And I will most likely be upgrading my S in the near future. Although I would love to keep all of them!

    I hope those features will be available well before Model 3 launch. Otherwise, people buying an S or X in the near future will be without auto steer, AEB etc. for over a year. Maybe that's the price of getting the latest hardware but it seems like a long time to wait.

    Some people enjoy picking up and actually playing a guitar, while others prefer to just press "Play" on their phone. I guess we fall into the former category. It's still nice to have the option though :)

    Interesting. I wonder where the side- and rear-facing cameras are mounted.

    It probably depends on how long you are keeping the vehicle. It'll take time for all this to be enabled, and the price is much higher now. $5,000 for autopilot plus another $3,000 for full self driving according to the online configurator. Version 1 was only $2,500 as recently as a month or so ago.

    the pricing is up on the Model S page.

    "enhanced Autopilot" -$3,000
    "full self-driving capability"- $5,000 (on top of the $3,000)

    so $8K

    What will be the new terms now. Does that mean our "Classic" is now an "Antique" and the current AP cars will become "classics"?
