    In all the photos I've seen of the production line, I've never seen any indication that there are large batches of the same color. They may do a handful of cars in the same color at a time, but it's never a significant number.

    Hard to say. I don't think cars go from paint to production but stage for a while first. So they could easily batch paint a bunch of cars where some would sit for up to a week or more curing and waiting in a queue to best match the production phase (ie same features but different colors).

    I couldn't decide between Midnight Silver Metallic, Solid Black, Titanium Metallic, or Red Multi-Coat. But then I was able to see the red, black, and midnight in person on a Model S and saw titanium online. Felt the red was "too red," which is too bad because Signature Red looks gorgeous! Too late for that, unfortunately. But the Midnight Silver Metallic wasn't nearly as grey as I had worried, so that's the one I chose. Plus the paint looks like stars in the monolith when the sun shines on it. I didn't even consider white because I had a white Jeep that was swarmed by bees once, and that's the last white car I owned. OK, yes... I know that beekeeper suits are solid white because that doesn't attract bees, but I'm allowed my superstitions!

    Were you transporting honey in you Jeep? There's a superstition that bees like honey :wink:

    Would a moderator consider making this a sticky please?
    I think it is fun for people to answer the poll and interesting to see how the breakdown changes over time.

    There is no grey. There is, however, Midnight Silver Metallic. ;-)

    The exterior colors available are exactly the same as those for the as. In case you want to actually see them.

    I originally ordered the blue but after thinking about it for a while, as soon as I got my VIN, I changed it to Obsidian Metallic Black.

    MultiCoat Red is a perfect Red.
