With the continued debate regarding the number of cars "in inventory" it seems that the availability of Tesla loaners is a good indicator of inventory status: Loads of cars = easy to get a Tesla Loaner. Today I brought my car in for its annual check up, and like last time, there were NO Tesla loaners available. I did not see any of the missing 12,000 cars in inventory anywhere on the San Diego service center property and NO inventory cars plugged into the bank of chargers in front of the building (where overflow inventory cars would need to be charged). Please post your experience with getting a Tesla Loaner October 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014. Also, let us know if you found the missing inventory!
