    Hi everyone.

    I've been watching all the threads about having Model S "true colors" stand up. So yesterday, we photographed all 10 colors of Model S in the same place, in the same lighting, with the same camera, from the same angle. We have posted the images here:

    Event Gallery | Tesla Motors

    More to come...

    Please enjoy!!!

    Thank you GeorgeB!!!! These beautiful shots are *extremely* helpful to those of us struggling to Finalize our interior/exterior color selections, having seen only a handful of colors in person. Please repeat the series from every angle, with every possible permutation of wheel size and style, and interior leather selection. I am only halfway kidding, of course! One thing that can be definitively said here: Model S is stunning in every combination. Well done!

    Thanks, GeorgeB. Pretty darn close but near impossible task given that the sun doesn't like to stay still why u execute your great idea. Check out the shadow under tree on the left and shadows behind and to the side of the car. 10/10 for effort!
    Disclosure: OCD again. Sorry. :tongue:

    As there's been discussions about communication recently and George is reaching out, I've taken the liberty of making this thread a sticky temporarily.

    (And maybe I can use this magic power to get my Model S already!:cool:)

    I don't see a distracter in any of those pictures. No fun.
