According to reports from multiple owners, the Tesla Model S is leaving the factory with a swiveling central touchscreen.
Tesla recently gave the Model S (and Model X) a significant internal update that included a steering yoke, but did not confirm the swivel screen. Owners have reported seeing the screen and claiming it is the original equipment.

The Model S has always been at the forefront of screen technology, although the failed touchscreen in the Model S and X led to a large-scale withdrawal request from the U.S. government. Couldn’t fix that with over-the-air updates. This applies to cars with older versions of the portrait-based screen swapped for a horizontal-based screen as part of a recent interior refresh.
Tesla has also lost its monopoly on the big screen. Lucid Air has a retractable pilot panel attached to a 34-inch 5K main screen for climate control, seat settings and other functions. And the BMW i7 was recently unveiled with a huge 31.3-inch BMW theater screen, which comes down from the roof so that the passengers in the back seat can watch movies while driving with them.

Some Chinese-market vehicles have rotating screens for several years.
