“It really is a supercomputer in the car,” said Musk.

Owners of older models will not be able to update them by installing new cameras and sensors. Full self-driving will only be available to owners of Tesla S, X and the third model.
“The modernization of the machine this is not realistic,” said Musk. — “This is how to make the car a transplantation of the spinal cord”.
