    Getting Signature Red, but if I was still a general production #, I would be getting Blue.

    I will be selecting the Sunset Red, if available when my number (P9001) comes up.

    Just got my paperwork on Sig #731. Signature Red, Performance, Pano Roof, Tan Leather, Lacewood, 21" wheels, 3rd row seats, HPWC, no spoiler. CAN. NOT. WAIT!!! Official due date is October, but I'm hoping for mid-September.

    If I wasn't getting the Sig, I'd probably get the brown. Beautiful color. Would have liked the blue to be lighter.

    Kinda think we have enough stickies at the moment. I edited the poll to add Sunset Red (though it's not yet listed as available on the Tesla website) and to list the official names of the colors.

    We've had a poll on colors before. I guess folks have now seen them in person rather than having to go by the (rather inaccurate) design studio representations.

    Well, Sequoia Green, it is for me.

    There's color polls all over the site, some with just a few of the hot colors, but here's a comprehensive one that's been up for awhile with numbers behind it...

    Actual Color Poll - New

    Though I think your list best, as it's the most accurate/complete for the posted colors from Tesla, and it's anonymous.

    Selected black in the poll, but seriously considering blue. Unfortunately, the blue car was taken out of service for the Sunday test drives in LA, so I didn't get to see it today. :crying:

    the only two colors I didn't get to see were Catalina White and the sunset red at the LA event. However, I'm all in for Pacific Blue with the performance wheels. The pacific blue at LA had the 19" wheels, but a quick photoshop hack I added the dark carbon wheels and that's what I want!!

    Some great pics of the Green from the LA event (courtesy Lyon?!) - I'm definitely sold! :)

    Fascinating - given that silver is the most common car color in the U.S. and among luxury cars. We are a strange bunch...


    Whoops - looks like I am out of date. White has edged it out in recent years and both white and black have edged out silver for luxury cars - but this is still a really unusual distribution. Those 3 colors are typically 60% and with gray close to 75%.

    IMO, the red results are significantly skewed due to the color limitations of Signature and non-Signature. This also, arguably, inflates the black, white, silver results relative to the other colors as well. For example, if they offered a Signature Blue (i.e. a blue tone but the same "spark" to it that the red has) it is something I would have definitely considered.

    At the test drive events, Silver has looked particularly weak compared to the Grey - both in person and in pics; a lot of folks who might have gone for Silver might be opting for the Grey instead.

    The poll's a little misleading though; it might have made more sense to break it out into two polls - one for Signature folks and the other for General Production - given the choices (restricted in a sense) for both. Oh wait, Trnsl8r had them back in January before we had seen the colors in the flesh:

    What's your color? - Signature
    What's your color? - production

    I was 100% set on black, but after seeing the sunset red in person at the LA event, I am now torn. I guess the good news is that I have some time to think about it (I have to find some positive aspect to my high reservation number)

    It might be useful to see what the NEW poll turns up, now that most of us have seen live versions, or photos of live versions.
