    Everyone seems to be arguing over the colour of this dress:
    What colour is this dress?

    I see the jacket as blue and similar blue stripes throughout the dress. The bits between the blue are blackish/grey. My son agrees with me. But my wife and daughter swear that it is white and gold. My other daughter sees blue and green.

    ANYWAY - I was the one that chose the colour of my Tesla. I chose Blue external and Black internal. This accords with the colours that I see the dress as! Co-incidence?

    I'd like to test this theory out... so this question is directed to THE PERSON THAT CHOSE THE COLOURS OF YOUR TESLA...

    WHAT IS THE EXTERNAL COLOUR OF YOUR TESLA AND WHAT COLOUR DO THEY SEE THE JACKET AS?

    WHAT IS THE INTERNAL COLOUR OF YOUR TESLA AND WHAT IS THE OTHER COLOUR THEY SEE IN THE DRESS?

    It will be interesting to see if a pattern emerges...

    To throw you data collection attempts for a loop right off of the bat...

    Tesla: Multi coat red with black interior

    When I first saw the dress: white/gold.. but now somehow my eyes have adjusted to perceiving blue/black. I have no idea as to why the change, and I can't see the white/gold anymore.

    *I am now trying to figure out some tin hat theories as to the nefarious purposes of this image*

    Red MC with Grey Interior.

    Of course, the dress is blue, with coppery gold bits! (Very cool though - the whole science of it).

    Sit red and black alcantara white leather. The dress? Blue and black with evidence of sunlight on the black satin so giving some goldfish highlights.

    Well on analysing the above pattern - I think we can conclude that the Red Tesla is the most popular colour!

    Hi all,
    Before ordering my Model S, it was hard to decide between solid white (a standard colour) and pearl white multi-coat ($2,000 extra).
    Pearl white has a beautiful lustre and it looks amazing up close. However, I decided on solid white, and I've been totally happy with it.

    At the Sydney meet-up in April, I took these photos of the two side-by-side.
    The solid white car has the windscreen sticker.
    I hope these photos help someone in their decision making!
