    Anyone have any shots of the blue Model S with black leather? Can't decide: tan or black leather. (Have kids, but also never had black leather seats.)

    Don't have pictures but the black leather looks nice, especially with the red piping on the performance.

    I test drove the blue/tan. Originally I wanted either black/black or blue/black, but I was really impressed with the blue/tan. I'd love to get a car with black leather, and I think it would cut down on the number of tones in the cabin. So tough...

    Blue-tan is a beautiful combination. The black interior is really closer to charcoal gray.

    Really???

    Hmmm, not excited about that revelation. I assumed it would be the same color as the seat backs.

    I have seen the Blue with tan leather in standard and performance, and they are both gorgeous. I drove the grey perf with black leather, and while nice, it gave a much smaller feeling to the interior. And I am not a fan of the red perf piping (though the piping on the grey and tan looks very good to me).

    Saw one of the Blue/Tan cars at Menlo Park the other day. Really a stunner.

    I have as well. I was thinking of Grey with Black interior until I saw the Blue/Tan cars. I drove both a Prod and Perf model with that color combo and am sold on it. My current car is black with black leather and I usually go in that direction. The blue Model S almost looks black in certain light, but is beautiful in the sunlight. The tan interior is really tan/black and works quite well.

    Merge: Blue and Black

    Could you post some pictures with your door opened. I would really like to see the black interior with the blue exterior. Thanks!

    The sun just set and an iPhone is a crappy camera, but here it is:

    I have to say that the black and blue look is nice, even though it doesn't come across in the picture.
    I think beige would look better on the whole, but beige will have brown "highlights" within a year while black will stay black. The black with red piping is really nice looking, too.

    I'm very glad I got a black interior.

    I meant if the piping had another colour than the leather, of course.

    I have the blue and black, but no red piping - I presume that this is because I don't have the performance model. No pics from me since I just took delivery on Thursday and the sun hasn't been out since then :mad:
