    I am currently at the Fremont SC and saw the burnt orange outside. Also of note is that the extra superchargers are now working. Spoke with the head of interior design and she said the car was a test run and belonged to the head of paint.

    WE LOVE BURNT ORANGE in Austin :cool:

    This color is actually very popular on some higher end cars--McLaren and others:

    I see that the panel where the "T" logo is embedded is now body colored. Wonder if this is what we can expect from newer models?

    burnt orange is the most horrible color I've ever seen on any standard production car.

    Hmmm. Between sightings of electric green and burnt orange MS' maybe we can expect some new color options soon?

    LOL. I like it! But I still like the Blueberry better and will be getting it when I upgrade to the AWD MS.

    Agreed on both. I do like what he did with the nosecone, which is the opposite of what I did....

    I love that metallic burnt orange Tesla. If it had been available when I placed my order three weeks ago I would have gone for it, and even paid $1k extra!

    Color is a very personal thing.

    Yeah, wow. When I read the description off the thread, I thought I would hate it, but I think it's pretty sweet. It really pops, but not obnoxiously so.

    I ordered red because I wanted a bright "color" (white/white/gray/black are all shades, blue/green are essentially black, and wasn't impressed with brown but it's also quite dark) after having a series of grays and whites. I would definitely have ordered that orange if it were available.

    I also love how painting the upper part of the nosecone tones my least favorite part of the car down a bit.

    I guess I just spotted this blueberry on 280 this afternoon.
