The steep goal of getting to Level 4 autonomy might be even more of a reach for Tesla after the company recently lost its top AI architect Andrej Karpathy.

I suspect he is using it as a demand lever.
Have you seen a poll for any high end product where people didn't say that wanted to pay less for it? Tesla probably is happy to sell less units of FSD at a higher price. Limiting the number of buyers also cuts down on the amount of complaints.
right but the difference now is that current cars already have basic AP.Lots of things have increased 50%+ since 2016-7.
Yeah. When we got our cars FSD was between $6-7K. Didn’t think it was worth it then but our discount was so steep that I left it in there to see if it ever amounted to anything.right but the difference now is that current cars already have basic AP.
So the $6k for "new" EAP just adds NoA, Summon, Parking etc on top of the free AP that all cars have, which is much more than 50%
On balance for me and I'm guessing many others, charging such a silly amount of money for FSD just means we don't bother paying it so they lose the revenue.
I've got FSD beta on my Model 3, but I'm not going to bother paying $6k just to get lane change and summon and certainly not paying $12k or more for FSD with my Model Y order.
There will always be someone willing to pay it. But what's happening now is that it seems there are fewer and fewer folks willing to pay it, so they end up with less money not more.I think this is a chicken and the egg situation. To this day, I don't think there is another car brand with EAP equivalent capabilities. Some close but not quite. You can scream all you want about how worthless and over priced FSD was, is or to be. Tesla is setting the price point now for whatever capabilities it will introduce. Other car manufacturer will most likely follow closely on that price point if they have the capabilities. Why give away pure profit?
Amen to that!!Should have taken the money and put it in $TSLA instead.
Navigate on Autopilot is included in the Enhanced Autopilot package, so you didn't even have that.Yes, in 2016, if you paid $5,000 for Enhanced Autopilot. So we really paid $8,000 for FSD. When I sold that car a few months ago, I had NOA as the only real feature over EAP.
