Update: Nope, we WILL NOT be invited to the Early Access Program. Tesla officially confirmed this with an ars Technica reporter this week. Wait, you didn't get the email from Tesla about this? Neither did I! Oh well...
Update: I just spoke with "Terri" in Tesla customer services. She was actually aware of the blog post in question, and she said that some customers have told her that they have already received their invitations to the Early Access Program due to their purchase of FSD with their cars!
And she says that everyone who purchased FSD has either received, or will receive an invitation. Hopefully, I didn't overlook mine, as I think there might be an time limit for returning the NDA and it is my understanding that Tesla will not send out another invitation if we don't respond in time.
So, congratulations to those who have already received your invitations, and the rest of us can look forward to getting our invites. I'm really happy to say that I was wrong about this. Thanks, Tesla, sorry to have doubted you!
As you know, Tesla had promised that people who purchased FSD with their car last year would be invited to the Early Access Program in a blog post dated March 1st.
Well, that blog post has been deleted by Tesla.
Based on the attached response from Tesla's customer support to my query about this, I'm guessing that Tesla has realized that they cannot actually make good on that promise. Sadly, this is no longer surprising to me. OK, Tesla fanboys and apologists, let's see how you will spin this one.
