    Since someone was asking for a sticky for every colour of Model S, I decided a photo gallery makes a whole lot more sense.

    Home | Tesla Model S

    I've done a few colours so far but could use help compiling the rest of the colours.

    If anyone has some good photos of Model S in blue, white, silver, brown or 2013 red it would be much appreciated.

    I can share a login with you via PM if you'd like to upload some photos of those colours. If you're not that keen but have a link to an existing photo gallery of a specific colour that you'd like added post the link in this thread and I'll do my best to add it in.

    Thanks to Evan and Robert for a good selection of green and black Model S photos!

    Mods, consider making this sticky?

    Been hard at work... Still need more Silver and Brown photos.

    Has anyone taken delivery recently and taken some good shots of their silver or brown car?

    What I'm mostly looking for are the differences between pearl white and white to justify the $1500 price tag...

    I haven't seen the pearl white, but I did see the "production" white in person at the Toronto store opening and it looked fantastic.
    IMHO it's not worth the extra $1500 but I'm not a huge fan of pearl/metallic finishes.

    I think you'll have a very hard time telling the difference between the two whites in pictures. (Especially since the white is frequently overexposed).

    I had a hard time telling in the store based on the samples, which is why I didn't get the pearl white as it just didn't differ that much from white. It could tell with the samples out in the sunlight, but it wasn't that dramatic a difference.

    Have you seen the pearl white in person? It gives the car a lot more dimension. The car's curves are much more evident. If you go into a Tesla store and look at the large paint samples on the wall, you will notice that the concave surface of the pearl sample has much more dimension to it than the white one does. The shape reads better.

    This difference is harder to see in photos of the Model S or on Tesla's web site. You have to see it in person.

    The Motor Trend photos of the multi-coat red that were posted on their COTY site are fantastic. I have them all and someone else has posted them on this site. Incredible photos they are.

    Here is my shot of the Sunset (Production) Red car I test drove at GET AMPED Fremont, if you want it:

    It shows off how HOT the colour is in bright sunlight!

    The sunset has been replaced with multi-coat red, so this color is no longer operable.

    Thanks so much for the post. Was looking for a great place to compare the colors in different light and finally found it!

    Looked at every pic in the slideshow, max F11 size. I am astonished at how well the MS shaping and design shows off in all the colours available to date. There is real genius behind this.

    Now you need to get at least a dozen shots of each colour in each interior -- so that would be 12 x 11 x 5 x 6 = 3960 pix. Approximately, give or take an order of magnitude or two. :eek::biggrin:

    Great idea!

    One correction: in the "Pearl White" section, there are several photos of a white car with the white roof (both from Tesla's "true colors" photos and from some of the Get Amped events). That car is the regular, non-pearl white.
