    Test drives should start soon. 90 stores nationwide to receive shiny red Performance AWD Model 3s for test drives. Does that mean heavily discounted inventory M3P cars will be available in a couple of months? Let the onslought begin!

    Maybe December as part of a year-end blow out?

    That was Fremont, right?
    Also, enclosed trucks, so less likely we will see them during transit...

    This is exciting! It is happening!

    There was another thread discussing the fact the P demo cars for S/X aren't all that 'heavily' discounted

    Those trucks don't ship cars. Those are just regular cargo "vans" and not car carriers.

    I understood it as up to 10% range, if it's part of a visual design refresh?

    I'm not sure why they'd be in a big hurry to move this test drivers unless they thought it important enough to juice fiscal year numbers by the roughly 6mil in revenue they could book by flipping them over. But for that to matter they'd need to have a week or two over the holidays where they wouldn't have have a car on the showroom floor.
