    Went in to order my S85 and heard they had a batch of inventory cars just coming in.

    Feel quite jammy as they had pretty much the spec that I wanted and I get to drive it away on the 20th Dec! :)

    Anyone else gone for one of these?

    Be careful to check to see if it has Autopilot hardware. That is important to some people and many of the inventory cars Tesla has been selling lately don't have it.

    Yes. I did. Got on Sunday. Should be here in 1 week. The inventory let's them sort autopilot now. And mine was a after Oct 10 build with new pricing. 50 miles on it. 1100 off. Same spec as I would order.

    Congratulations!

    Presumably it was a cancelled order from someone who decided to wait for a D model. They're all built to order either for a customer, or to be loaner/demo/showroom cars. Given the very low mileage this one must have been a cancelled customer order.

    The non autopilot versions have huge discounts. $15-22k off sticker. Depends on build date and miles.

    As far as I know, the pre-Autopilot inventory didn't make it over here - or at least they were never offered. All the ones I could choose from came with Autopilot.

    Whilst not "inventory", As Tesla UK are rotating all their Demonstrators and their fleet cars, I picked up a nice high spec, low mileage P85S ex marketing car with a nice discount off list which will be my fill in whilst awaiting my D delivery

    Congratulations.

    That has to be a current record getting one a week after ordering. I'm still waiting delivery this month for one I ordered four months ago.

    Picking up my inventory car tomorrow! S85 tech air rear sound for £17k off list :)

    No autopilot is a bummer but I figure I'm more than happy to do all the driving ;)
