Individual self-driving "features" may amount to little more than further enhancements of Autopilot. To date, Autopilot resources have rightly focused entirely on safety.

Tesla intends to make quite a range of vehicles. "Maybe they will even allow a Tesla to fly..."

"The software update is good news", Elazar Advisors' Chaim Siegel was quoted as saying by Reuters, adding the stock was still benefiting from Musk's last week's Model 3 prediction that Tesla will likely hit a "5,000 vehicle week by the end of this month". Elon Musk has tweeted about the possibility of rocket thrusters for extra boost for the Roadster and knowing what he is capable of, it might turn out to be a reality.

Beyond the Enhanced Autopilot suite, Tesla also offers Full Self-Driving Capability as an option on its cars.

In other words, Minecraft: Story Mode coming to Netflix isn't some new venture for the streaming service. Also under the deal, Telltale is producing a game based on " Stranger Things " for consoles and PCs.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has revealed in a recent announcement that the automaker's forthcoming super auto - the next-generation Roadster - will feature an "Augmented Mode" which will enable the drivers to handle the vehicle's power. With eight active cameras, the system is created to eventually support full self-driving in nearly all circumstances. There's still no clear deadline for when a Tesla will be able to fulfill the company's promise that the cars will take trips "with no action required by the person in the driver's seat".

It also promises cars will automatically park themselves, having dropped the driver at their destination, and return to pick them up when summoned from a smartphone app.

Tesla explains that self-driving functionality "is dependent upon extensive software validation and regulatory approval, which may vary widely by jurisdiction".

The tweet said that the new v9 update would "enable full self-driving features", which does not necessarily mean that Tesla will be able to operate autonomously.
