Tesla insiders are claiming that FSD, Full Self-Driving, is optimized for Elon Musk and other VIP drivers on the West Coast of the USA.

It’s still unconfirmed, but what started as a suspicion has now graduated and become a rumor.

Ironically, it sort of all started because Tesla is such a strongly hyped brand.

People talk about it all the time, on all kinds of forums and social media, and that’s when certain discrepancies began to emerge.

Tesla’s strategy for FSD

Elon Musk and Tesla spent the last few months heavily publicizing FSD.

Not a day goes by without a new video showcasing what FSD can do.

We’ve seen it navigate construction sites, and even white hat hackers are impressed by it.

Not only that, it seems Elon Musk is now telling sales representatives they must give clients test rides with FSD, according to a leaked email.

This, Musk believes, is the best way to make people understand what FSD can do.

The reason why Tesla FSD might work better in some areas

At this point, precisely thanks to Tesla’s new strategy, a lot of people have tried it at least once, so that means a lot of people have an opinion on it.

Some like it, some don’t, but a pattern emerged.

Several owners and drivers noticed that FSD appears to know what it’s doing a lot better when it’s on the West Coast.

Not only that, it seems FSD might work better in certain areas of some cities, and when it’s covering certain routes.

This, according to Tesla insiders, is due to the fact that Elon Musk himself has reportedly asked engineers to fine-tune FSD so that it collects more data when it covers routes often used by Musk himself or other VIP customers.

Influencers and celebrities, for example.

Obviously this is just speculation but, knowing Musk and Tesla, it wouldn’t be shocking if it were true.
