    Brown, grey, silver, navy - I'm sure Model 3 will look great in those colors, but they are still boring. :D I'm hoping they'll have at least one "exotic" type color. The red model 3 shown seems sort of dull red. So what approximate exotic color(s) do you want to see most? Since I'm sure Tesla monitors this forum and does whatever we say.

    British racing green would be a classy option.

    revival of the roadster colours like "glacier blue" and "very orange".

    my personal favorite would be some ocean colour

    I think if the choice was between the colors shown already and your ocean color I'd choose yours! It's very interesting...

    It is an interesting color, but I would prefer something more like this color:

    or this:

    I think it would look perfect on an Model 3 :)

    I might be convinced to get purple if the shade is nice, as that is my favorite color. I see blue has a lot of votes and at the moment my preference is the nice blue from the My Tesla reservation page, but I wouldn't really consider that exotic. Some kind of very bright/light blue might be, though. Same deal with green - I'd only consider green to be exotic if it were really bright.

    I consider any color that is not in the Tesla Design Studio to be "exotic" on a Tesla of that model ;)

    (And no, black, white and any gray tone in between is not a color).

    Blue really SHOULD be a factory option for Bluestar........
    But hey, wraps get more interesting every year. Maybe Xpel Ultimate will start making colors for an all-in-one solution.

    Happy Friday!

    LOVE that color. I actually sent this exact same pic to some folks I know telling them that this color would be fantastic.

    There was also a green Model S in the background of Bjorn's Nebbenes supercharger opening video. I love that green also.

    I imagine that most people not interested in "exotic" colors will not read this thread and certainly not vote, while of the remainders, 2/3 voted for either blue or red.

    Are we under 5% overall interest yet ?

    People who cannot get enough of these colors are well advised to visit coral reefs, where glaring colors somehow become in totality a quite pleasant experience.

    One of the reasons to have "exotic" colors is to "stand out from the crowd" with something special. If everybody wanted/had "exotic" colors, it would not be exotic any more :)

    That is lipstick, e.g. on the proverbial pig. When is it not "weird" ?

    I'm actually asking a serious question, since ever since EM graced the world with the "weird-mobile" epithet, the reactionaries and dyed-in-the-wool, hate change, confuse familiar with aesthetic amongst us have been given license to proclaim their world-view the true path.

    Yet, it seems everyone always considers a Silver car to be 'special', and those are all over the place in Los Angeles. Along with the 'special' Black, White, and Gray cars... :D Make mine RED -- that's an actual Color, instead of a Value or Hue.

    I really want a bright color that is not a silver / grey scale or white, without having to pay too much for it. I suppose the exact color would determine how much I consider too much though.
