    Another "passing time" poll, this one for Signature reservation holders. What's the color you have in mind for your S?

    This is Signature colors. Production color poll here: What's your color? - production

    Reluctantly, white. My last few cars have been silver; I don't like the red (seems too mid-life crisis for me); and black shows too much dirt. I wish they had provided one more signature only color.

    I don't think you'll regret it JB. The Pearl looks awesome, especially if you upgrade to the performance carbon fiber accents!

    No mid-life crisis here - always said I was getting Red. No offence Trnsl8r but it does seem like there's been an awful lot of "colors" discussion already.....:frown:

    I'm going to have to wait and see it live. I'm sure I'll be happy! Unfortunately, I don't think I can go with the Sig performance. I'd have to bump down to general production to afford that...so, the CF accents won't be possible for me?

    I think you'll be happy with the pearl white. The CF accents can be added aftermarket maybe but don't look like they're an option in the non-performance model.

    None taken. I just like the visual of a poll for a quick glance and couldn't find one for colors (the only one was for Sig and omitted red). Thought I'd throw it up here and see if anyone voted... :)

    I'm undecided. It will either be Pearl or Red, though - may as well get the quality I'm paying for.

    Yeah, the signature red. But only because it is a bit deeper than a fire engine red. I really want a nice deep Burgundy. (Question for the Paint Maester: What do you add to red to get a nice Burgundy?)

    Burgundy is moving toward purple so that means adding blue to red to move it in that direction.

    I've always been a sucker for white cars, do I'll be continuing the trend here!

    Is it possible that is simply Signature Red? Colors don't come out correctly on the web and in certain lighting.

    The Red is too red for me. I think it would get annoying. Black is out for heating reasons, and I detest silver.

    So white it is. With a white interior. And the light brown (banana leaf) trim. If there are any other cosmetic choices, I'm going with the palest option. :) I figure I'll have the palest model S on the road.
