I definitely test drove a different car the first time I went down to the dealer, but only for a couple of miles as they were trying to have me look at one they already had in stock. However, I made sure to drive the car I ordered after it arrived before signing the paperwork and agreeing to pick it up.
It doesn't make sense to buy a car that you've never driven, at least when it was new. Now my previous car was a 5 speed manual and I didn't know how to drive it when I bought it, so I brought my father with me to test drive it, and then I drove it home after a brief lesson, but that was a $650 14+ year old car at the time.
