    Who knows what goes on in the minds of the Tesla Motors.

    But... Silver Metallic is back, for $1,000. :smile:

    I'm hoping this means there might be Silver Metallic Model X vehicles.

    In a thread in the X forum someone with access to the X configuration website stated that the X was available in silver.

    When I ordered my S85 in May 2014 Silver Metallic cost $750.

    The price went up sometime during the 10 months after that, because when I ordered my 85D in March 2015 (a few weeks before they got rid of the color), Silver Metallic was $1000.

    I love my silver S85 I was surprised when they discontinued it for a while.

    The more "vibrant" the paint color, the less appeal it has to the mass market.
    Please keep in mind that e person who just made that statement (meaning me) owns a "Very Orange" Roadster.

    My Tesla spends a pile of time in airport garages and I am a clean freak.

    I bought my 70D early because Silver was going away. Glad to see it back for me and other people who like lighter color cars.

    Last two cars were white or I would have possibly gotten white, but, really like my car in Silver.

    I just posted in another thread that I pulled the plug on a new S90D because my favorite color was not available. Yahoo. Got to get my new one.

    Right, it depends a lot on the car. I love the "Skittles" Roadsters, but IMHO some of those colors wouldn't make much sense on something as big as Model S.
