This is how I got my current car. I didn't want to wait for a custom-built car (due to the summer production holiday), so my dealer snagged a non-Priority 1 car that was already on the boat enroute to US. The car had been ordered by another dealer somewhere, but was not pre-sold. That made it fair game, I suppose.
