    Hello everyone!

    I've been lurking for a year or so now, but I just closed on a deal and I'm getting an inventory Model S delivered on Saturday!

    It's a P85 with Autopilot hardware, textile seats, Tech package and intelligent suspension in black/black.

    I'm super excited to get my new car, and move on from my ******* frustrating, annoying and downright dangerous Ford Fusion Energi.

    Cheers all!

    I was all set to buy a very nicely specced S85, but then I drove a P85.
    Big *** mistake. Or rather I should say a gobsmacking revelation!

    Congratulations!

    I did not think Tesla still offered the P85. Did you mean a P85D?

    Either way, consider the spring suspension for better handeling, if that is your priority over comfort.

    Congrats! I made the same mistake as you, no one warned me. I went to drive the S85, but they only had the S60 and P85 available for test drives (conspiracy? I think so). They have me drive the S60, and then entice me to try the P85, I couldn't get myself to settle after that and got in BIG trouble by ordering the P85D, but in the end I will be thrilled with my decision for years to come :D

    GSP, I think you missed that it was an inventory car.

    Congrats and Welcome!

    Your P85 will be in great company next to your awesome V10 in the garage!

    Yes, it was an inventory car that was a P85, but had the Autopilot hardware included; definitely a transition build and only one month old, which limited the discount I got as an inventory car with less than 100 miles on it.

    There was a P85D available to drive, but I had to stay away from it, because it just whispered sweet, tempting, devilish things to me that would cause my wallet (and accountant) would tap out.
