    Im really happy with my grey but there are rumors a new selection of colors are coming:

    Tesla Model S new colors coming soon - TESLARATI.com

    I wonder if the paint hardness/quality will change too?

    I like a car that doesnt draw too much attention but it would be good to see some different colors.

    I think if I had more opportunity to see grey cars I'd not be having a mini-panic attack right now.

    What I really wanted was a medium blue... but after waiting 6 more months my wife and I finally ordered grey, almost by default (we already have a silver car and a very dark blue one).

    It's..... going to be a thing if they pick something like this: audi_rs5.jpg

    Dammit.

    Lots of my grey car pictures here:

    Tesla Living

    I love the color. I was also interested in the brown and the green and pearl but in the end the grey did it for me.

    Oh, I have a whole collection of your car pictures! :smile: (and many other that I've been clicking through actually).

    It's just a visceral reaction-- that I like blue best and Tesla doesn't have a medium blue (as yet).
    I do see a lot of blue in the (pretty much only one) grey Teslas I've seen in person, that the pictures rarely capture it and we're well into the production queue now and not the type of folks who will be able to "redo" this car purchase easily.

    I'm sure I'll forget all about it and be fine... it's just the nature of these kinds of things, including the tinges of remorse inherent to the waiting period.

    <sigh>

    I do love that blue. Maybe they'll have more than one Sig color this time around.

    I would love to see some of the colors shown in those swatches offered by Tesla. There's no reason to be stuck with "safe" colors like most automakers since Tesla doesn't have to build spec cars for inventory. I know there's been talk previously of their paint shop being limited on the number of colors they can spray at a given time, so hopefully they can find a way around that.

    Oh Laurent.... I've stalked your car around the internet too. GORGEOUS.

    But now I hate you.

    My wife, too, was oooh-ing and ahhh-ing about the lighter blues. I own too many red cars already, she says.
