I was so getting a red Performance Squared Model 3.
Then this happened...
now sit it on dark wheels
But no, I'm getting all of the Performance bits. So I'll have the 20 inchers. I would love to have the same as Franz though!
Isn’t that the same blue that it’s been for a long time now?
What does a white on white snowball look like?
What's so new about it?
Yep that’s the exact same blue that’s been an option. Sorry that’s not new
Its the same blue but they did update the shade of the picture on configurator
the problems with getting a car that looks good in any colour ...
Really? I'm getting catfished?
I don’t remember seeing the “metalic” mention before. And it looks way lighter than the blue ones I see out there. I could swear this is a different blue than the one I've been ignoring in the configurator for weeks...
Since you live in SF, it should be pretty east to see an S or X or possibly a 3 in this color. I like that it looks pretty dark in low light and much brighter in direct sun, but obviously I'm biased! (see sig)
The name is the same, but I have never seen a deep blue metallic Model 3 in person so I can't confirm that it is the same shade as before. I can confirm that the picture is different. On my Telsa Account page, I have my DBM Model X right above the default DBM Model 3 and the blue looks completely different. I think the real color is darker more like the old pic. I guess it could get to the lighter shade of the new pic but it has to be really really bright outside.
If the car actually looked that light of shade of blue... I'd consider it... but in person the blue Teslas look very dark and dull and almost purple to me. This coming from a Laser Blue Mica Mazda MP3 and a Celestial Blue Mica Mazdaspeed3
its not new and its not that light of a blue in real life. its a dark blue for the most part.
It's darker, but not as dark at the older 2014 Tesla blue.. forgot the name. I had that as a loaner and that blue is almost black. It is definitely not the lighter celestial blue.
This is the old image:
This is the new image:
Edit: Had white interior for new blue. Replaced with black
Without a name change it's likely just an art update. It'll continue to be underwhelming in reality in anything other than perfect lighting conditions.
It actually grows on me. I don't like blue car, but my wife wanted it so we got it. I found that I like it more and more everyday. I just ordered a model 3 and I was thinking about getting the blue, but 2 blue cars (same exact color) just looks odd. LOL.
The new image is more accurate. However, you still have to see it in person. After seeing it in person, I like it, but I like the red a lot more.
I wonder why they would bother adjusting the image.... as the new image looks less like the color in real life.... I wonder if they really are making a paint change.... But I also checked the "side profile" view and it is still the old blue color. Model S "Deep Blue" looks unchanged as well so... not sure what the deal is.
