Which consist of cameras and outputs to lights steering accelerator and brakes. Not exactly insurmountable….
Nope. Companies routinely develop software and then sell it to automobile manufactures.
Totally different types of software. FSD software is inextricably linked to the hardware it runs on.
Please, point me to where I can buy a new current generation FSD computer board 'off-the-shelf'. Point me to were I can even source the ASICs they are using.so is any software. The liscensee just puts that hardware in his car. Most of the hardware the fad suite uses off the shelf stuff. You act like this is some insolvable problem. It’s not. It’s already been solved.
I’m talking the cameras and sensors. But there is nothing particularly special about the computer and the software liscense could simply allow the manufacturers to build the PCB….Please, point me to where I can buy a new current generation FSD computer board 'off-the-shelf'.

becauzd it doesn’t work right now. If it did, things might change. We are talking about the future.
The market is not going to suddenly become bizarro world where giving up an undisputed leadership in car manufacturing in favor of becoming a niche software company is somehow a good idea.
Elon did a truly amazing thing getting Tesla to both survive and to be a serious auto manufacturer. I don't think Tesla would have made it to where it is today without him. Probably would have never survived at all in fact. He deserves tones of praise for that.I'm not so sure, I think Elon is becoming out of touch with reality. The stalkless yoke which literally offers zero advantages and is less functional and less safe is going to damage the brand significantly. Then when you consider the insanity of suggesting that the model 2 come without wheel or pedals are two points that call out serious, serious problems with his leadership. It wouldn't surprise me if he tries to do other outlandish, dumb things.
Supposedly the Cruise Origin is going into production in 2023 and will be legal in California. As long as they finish the software it will be legal in many States. Of course bringing the Model 2 to production before FSD is finished seems a little crazy!There is no way a Tesla without a steering wheel would be legal anywhere.
Little off topic, but can I ask what specifically you're unhappy with?I bought it in spite of the software frankly, and the last 10 months of software updates have really made me like the brand a lot less. I am sure some people buy the cars for the software, but don't assume for a second that all (or even most do). I bought it because it is an awesome car to drive that also fits our households needs very well. All the (few) things I dislike about the car are software/UI related.
