    I am partial to this combination and was wondering if anyone had ordered and already received their green model S with grey performance wheels? before I decide it would be great to see some pictures from the wild of this combo.

    As @Lloyd hints, only Signature cars are "in the wild" currently, so only Sig Red, Pearl White, Black, and Silver roam.

    Anticipating late January, #2823, and I'd be happy to post photos when it is delivered. I ordered tan interior with carbon fiber dash. There will likely be some posted before me however!

    I'm thinking of exactly the same combo! great m...... think alike....!

    I have an affinity for green cars having had serval in racing green and also have a Q7 with a very similar green to the TESLA variant. but different seize and not grey wheels makes it difficult to judge what it will be.......

    I so wish we had no gaps like that computer generated picture. Green and grey wheels should be sick!

    I know this isn't truly real, but here is an amateurish photoshop I did from the original GetAmped, swapping out the silver 19" wheels for the grey 21s. It should indeed look sick. It was the combination I had configured before I decided that the lack of downgrade credit for 19"....wait, let's not even go there. :redface:

    1. It's not bad at all (photoshop skills).
    2. That color combination looks sick! Imho, it's about the only way to do the green.

    I am struggling to determine my final color combo... Green w/Gray21s is HIGH on my list, with others, want to see more in the flesh.

    I really like the grey wheels, but they sort of clash with the chrome around the windows. I wonder what it would cost to change that chrome....

    thanks jakeP,

    your photoshopping is much better than mine! I did try at one point what you have done here but not with the same result and got even more confused. now however, I think I have finalized my design! thanks!

    Felixtb, so glad my cut-and-paste work was helpful. Enjoy the green and grey, I am sure it will look spectacular against the backdrop of Lac Leman...please post a picture of it when it arrives!

    any custom car wrap shop should be able to "black out" the chrome pieces.

    It's a little trickier with door handles that retract, I would imagine.
