They haven't even added a single feature to EAP in the last 10 months, and a 2018 car still doesn't do as much as a 2014 car, even though AP on a 2014 car was $2,000 and "EAP" is $5,000 . It's insanity to pay $3,000 now assuming Tesla will get to FSD before your car wears out.
None of this has to do with regulations. Tesla has no code to drive the car by itself. They can't even read a speed limit sign right now, much less stop at a stop sign or red light.
Because Tesla will sell it to you for $3K right now on a new car, but "warns" you that it will be $4K after delivery. So they are tempting people to buy it now, without telling them just how tenuous or far away it is. All they say is "pending regulatory approval"
