The Tesla Model S Plaid+ Is DOA, Per Musk's Latest Tweet

  The Tesla Model S Plaid+ Is DOA, Per Musk's Latest Tweet Tesla is pulling the plug on the Model S Plaid+, per the brand’s chief executive officer, Elon Musk. Musk tweeted the news on Sunday, June 6, 2021: Plaid+ is canceled. No need, as Plaid is just so good. — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) June 6, 2021 While the upcoming Tesla Model S Plaid offers plentiful performance for its $121,190 asking price (including the ability to hit 60 mph in less than 2.0 seconds and a top speed of 200 mph, according to Tesla), its estimated driving range of 390 miles on a full charge falls 130 miles short of the claimed range of the $141,190 Plaid+ (520 miles).

After admitting recently that its Full Self-Driving Beta 9.2 was "not great,", Tesla head honcho Elon Musk announced in a tweet Wednesday that the next Beta 10 update for the automaker's driver-assistance software could arrive as early as next week.

The ambitiously named Tesla Full Self-Driving technology is not currently capable of actual full self-driving. Recently, at its AI Day event, Tesla demonstrated its progress towards full autonomy and gave us a peek behind the scenes at how it's working to speed up autonomous driving development. During the event, Musk was bullish that his tech would eventually be better than the average driver. For now, it is not, and FSD is most accurately described as an SAE Level 2 driver assistance tech that still requires a human driver to actively monitor the vehicle's progress and be ready to intervene at any time.

If Musk's tweets are to be believed, the next beta version of FSD is just around the corner.

But the next beta version of the driver aid software could arrive in vehicles via over-the-air update as early as Sept. 10, with Musk tweeting this evening that "FSD Beta 10 rolls out midnight Friday next week." This may be a closed beta, perhaps limited to drivers who have already opted into the FSD Beta program. However, a broader release might be just around the corner.

Tweeting a followup, Musk added that it "looks promising that Beta 10.1, about 2 weeks later, will be good enough for [a] public opt in request button." So, all things going smoothly, Tesla drivers who have paid for FSD may find a prompt somewhere in the infotainment menu granting them access to the latest beta version sometime around Sept. 25.

2022 Tesla Model S Plaid Review: A New 1,020-HP Chapter in American Luxury

  2022 Tesla Model S Plaid Review: A New 1,020-HP Chapter in American Luxury 2022 Tesla Model S Plaid Review: A New 1,020-HP Chapter in American LuxuryIt doesn't matter if you're not a fan of electric cars. Heck, it doesn't even matter if you're not a fan of Elon Musk, or a yoke-style steering wheel, or a shifter that's strictly digital. The Model S Plaid is spacious, serenely comfortable, and requires very little effort to drive. In this sense, it achieves the three main pillars of what defines traditional American luxury.

These are exciting times for fans of Tesla and fans of advancing car technology. Of course, delays happen and a reshuffling of the rollout is always a very real possibility, so don't get too excited just yet. And as is the case with all beta software, expect at least the possibility of a few bugs -- so don't get too comfortable and keep those eyes on the road.
