Hahaha, I am not looking forward to the day everyone is hovering around The image in my head is a gigantic bumper ride.I completely get what you are saying with opportunity cost, I'm pretty strict with my finances and where they go. The biggest thing with the FSD option for me is locking in a price with no commitment to actually purchase and see what happens in the future.
It's possible that FSD subscription would be cheap enough to balance the cost over a long period vs an upfront cost. But if Tesla actually reaches their goals and gets their FSD system to level 4 or 5, that's worth way more than 7000 to have in my truck.
I'm sure everyone knows how great it would be to have a level 5 vehicle that you can have to drive you home from a bar or just save on parking if you are going to an event and the truck can just drive to a lot with free parking or back home if it's close.
That could still be quite a few years away depending on when Tesla is legal and when the government decides it's legal. But just some of the features that will come before that is enough for me to put down 7000 without a second thought.
self parking and smart summon will be extremely cool to have when all the kinks are worked out. Especially on those days where the rain starts to downpour out of no where and i don't have my umbrella.
level 3 which i really don't think is far away for at least the highways since so many companies have been talking about how they are waiting for approval for these features. Being able to go on a long drive with my wife or friends and not watch the road constantly would be nice.
Now I'm a bit different than you, I don't plan to ever get rid of the Cybertruck. I'm pretty sentimental; I have my first truck and my first car still, both with incredibly high miles on them. When I get the Cybertruck, my truck will finally be retired and i'll probably fix it up one last time until it looks like new and then i'll just take it out for the nostalgia once in a while. My wife will probably want my car. I'll use the Cybertruck for everything, probably for 20+ years, and even if I decide to someday upgrade in the future with some futuristic Tesla that doesn't have a steering wheel and it's just some sort of self driving lounge on wheels. I'll always want a vehicle that I can drive myself once in a while.
...A hover vehicle would be the only thing I would want even more than the Cybertruck, but even if Tesla can make the Model S Plaid+ hover like they want to do, I doubt it'll be able to enough to drive it around for a very long time.
Ya, so many decisions to make.
