When FSD is released, it will be able to do everything Autopilot can do but more and better. Autopilot will basically be obsolete. Now, I don't think Tesla will turn off Autopilot but will Tesla have any reason to continue developing and supporting Autopilot after they release FSD? I don't see it. I feel like when FSD is released, AP2 will basically become like AP1 now. It might get a few updates here and there but it will basically be abandoned in favor of the new thing, FSD. I think current cars will still be able to use AP of course but Tesla may even drop Autopilot completely from future custom orders. I don't see why Tesla would even continue to offer Autopilot once FSD becomes available. Even if FSD is only L4 to begin with, it will be far better than AP.
