Tesla Now Delivering Model S P85D

If you reside in the U.S., then an order placed for a dual-motor Tesla today wouldn’t be delivered until February or later, but there are some lucky few individuals who are receiving their Model S P85Ds right now.

The image above shows a pair of P85Ds.  The black one belongs to Tesla, while the white P85D is one of the first set for delivery to a U.S. buyer.

Most who placed a P85D order immediately following its announcement will take delivery by the end of the month (there was a slight delay for some customers expecting their P85Ds the first week of the month as their cars were being held for quality control and EPA stickering), but just recently Tesla updated its U.S. site to reflect that it’s now concentrating on fulfilling overseas orders for the P85D.  That means that U.S. residents who place a dual-motor Model S order today will have to wait until February for delivery.

And here’s an image of Tesla Model S P85Ds in transit via palmer_md, who claims that he spotted 6 P85Ds on this car carrier:

Lastly, you can beat Tesla will deliver loads of P85Ds in the U.S. prior to the end of the month as the automaker seeks to meet it sales guidance.

    Let the next stage of Tesla vs. the world 1/4 mile drag videos emerge. These should really be interesting !

    I ordered my P85D on the first/opening order day, but specified “February Delivery” as I wanted to make sure it was registered as a 2015 year model. These cars will register as 2014 models since Tesla uses calendar year registration.

      Congrats on your new EV George! Maybe you can share your first impressions and pictures once you take delivery.

        You must be the only guy who doesn’t both want the car and the tax credit for this year George, (=

    I keep checking the Norwegian car sites and used Teslas are not getting any cheaper, I thought they would with the arrival of P85D, but it’s not happening 🙁

      The older, single motor Model S’s are still really nice f’n cars… *shrugs*

      Noone will actualy sell the car before he has a new one to drive. So as shipping begins, so will the aftermarket fluorish.

    I would love to have my Spark EV … AW”D”ed too!!

      oops, I did it again! Please ED have it fixed. Thx

    Even though the SPEED is shipping ‘early’, people still want the X-citement of a crossover…

    Based on the stock slipping, perhaps TMC will make that end of year announcement about the Roadster, to help boost its stock value?
