I'm almost surprised that 5 different-colored RCs have been spotted so far.
Tesla, show the midnight silver too please!!!
Yes, please do!
Edit: Finally spotted!
I hope matte gray dechromed survived!!!!
I noticed same license plate number for all.
Manufacturing (MFG) Plates
The trunk lid is different on the black and the red, even though the plate is the same. Black looks like lowest drag, but too odd looking to sell well.
Bet black moves the cd enough to round to a lower number. For example, black is .20 and silver/white/red is .21.
Did you perhaps notice a 2mm difference in the trunk lids that would account for this improvement in the drag coefficient?
Do you see the dining room table leaf coming out of the trunk lid on the black RC?
Maybe it is reflection. Not positive.
The 2-3 digits to the right of the "63277" is different for each manufacturer plate. One manufacturer plate (differentiated by the 2-3 digits) is usually assigned to one person (from my understanding as told to me by someone that works at an auto manufacturer/distributor).
I've been trying to collect RC pics and separate them by the different manufacturer plates.. but the plates are usually not readable.. but heres what I have so far:
Silver one (recently spotted at HQ) - 4N
White one (spotted on 280 a number of times)- 86M (or B6M)
New White one (spotted at HQ recently) - xN (definitely 2 digits, cant make out 1st digit, so this one is different from first one)
Red one (spotted at HQ) - 9N
Come on Tesla, show us some new paint colors. The current limited palette is not competitive with other manufacturers.
I remain hopeful that when the Model 3 configurator opens up that new colors will be offered, and that they will also be available for the S/X.
With less than 100 configs I'm expecting those 5. Perhaps up to 2 more but I doubt it.
Black first spotted in the wild - 7H
I really was hoping for Titanium Metallic. Absolutely beautiful!
Yes, me too... Check my Avatar...
Midnight silver please. Dark grey metallic is a must because it not only looks rich it helps hide any seam issues.
Sig red in the mix, hopefully better pictures soon
Have we seen a color of the RC's that isn't a Model S color option?
