    I saw a facelifted red model S at the Tesla store today and it had a different red then pre-facelifted models standing right next to it. The facelifted red was a lot lighter, more of "scarlet red" vs darker shade or red in the pre-facelifted cars. Am I hallucinating... or these are different colors indeed?

    The signature edition Model S is a darker red as far as I know all the colors are the same after the refresh.

    I was comparing to non-signature red cars... all P90Ds they use as test drivers. I even took one of their paint color samples... it was a perfect match with "classic" cars, but looked much darker then facelifted model

    So they are advertising their new refresh car color in the showroom that's not on the samples, it's not online and that you can't order your car in?

    ...and Tesla Store staff doesn't seem to be aware of this new / different color as well - kinda strange
