The first Model 3 to come off the assembly line will have exceptional importance. Photos will show up in media outlets all over the world. So Tesla undoubtedly has given a lot of thought as to the color they are painting it. The most widely shown prototype was silver; do that again? White is traditionally the most popular car color (and my choice). Black is formal and classic. Red? Nah. The dark blue metallic is impressive, but conservative. Difficult choice. But the color that would make the biggest statement, that would be the biggest show stopper — would be an entirely new color. Not a Model 3 RC color, not a Model S/X color. Just imagine if they unveiled the first production Model 3, and it was bright yellow! Now that would blow a lot of people away!
