Is Tesla FSD Beta worth $15,000
The short answer is no. It is quite crazy that if you have Enhanced Autopilot already, the $9,000 FSD fee gives you almost nothing except the possibility of getting FSD Beta. This, however, is not a prize.
However, that is not what you are buying. Musk made it clear that true self-driving is more valuable than $15,000 and that prices will continue to rise to lead to self-driving.
FSD can be bought now for $15,000 to make a better bet that Tesla will deliver self-driving technology and that it will come at a lower price than the final price.
This is a gamble, however, because it’s not clear how the path from FSD Beta right now to a self-driving system safe enough for Tesla to take responsibility is.
It’s a wager that I made pre-FSD Beta day with less information and fewer missed deadlines. I also placed the $6,000 bet, which was what FSD cost back then. I’m not sure if I would put that bet for $15,000.
