    Possibly this is just a temporary fluke on the Tesla site but I was looking tonight and noticed that the standard white color is no longer being offered on either the model S or the model X. Anyone else seeing the same thing?

    Edit: I also noticed titanium is gone.

    They know white is popular so only thing I can think of is that they want people to upgrade to the Peal White for extra money improving their bottom line. Perhaps they have a stockpile of Pearl White paint getting old.

    Its really unbelievable that you only can get black, and the rest of the paint jobs will cost 1000-1500. Porsche does not charge $1,500 for white paint.

    I think it's ridiculous that the only 'standard' color is black and anything else requires extra $

    Their paint options have gone down the drain
