    Very nice. Has a Green ever been seen with dark wheels?

    Awesome thanks. I've seen this picture before, but couldn't find it.

    I haven't seen one yet, but it should look pretty good. Here's a picture of the black with dark wheels. Just imagine it with green highlights in the corners.

    A brown car with grey wheels is a horrible combination...Even given how cool this particular tone of brown is, the combination still looks awful.

    I don't think I would mind it as much if it had a dark interior. The exterior itself I do not find particularly offensive. It is not my favorite but not awful.

    Image reversed, or did Tesla install the charge port on the wrong side of the car?

    I mirrored the image, so the car would be in the same orientation as the other image.

    FWIW, I think the picture of the brown with the gray wheels is a better representation of the actual color than the more washed-out color in the picture with the silver wheels (based on my seeing a brown Model S on Friday in DC).

    Would definitely like to see more brown cars with grey / gunmetal wheels. The only picture that's here as of now does not look good, but I think totally black wheels still could be an option (se examples below, the only combination I could find with a quick google).
    Maybe the original Silver 21's for summer, and a set of aftermarket 19" wheels in all black for winter?? We'll see.

    I'm thinking of black interior trim for a brown Model S, but the red stitching does not match well with the brown exterior I think.

    I posted a couple brown P85 pics from the Cranberry Supercharger ribbon-cutting.

    You can find it on teslapittsburgh.com should be the 2nd post.
