    I’m not really sure what colors are available, except red and white, but I’m curious what colors other buyers are interested. I’m thinking white for myself.

    Possibly the exact same colors as the other cars?

    I assume Tesla might offer just the usual 5 colors on the new Roadster... black, white, red, blue, grey?

    If so, I would prefer mine in white color, and then I would wrap the whole car with the 3M 1080 SP10 Stain Pearl White wrap.

    Road grey, I will need to keep a low profile to avoid tickets.

    There are rendering with lots of different colors. I prefer yellow, but colors like the original Roadster would be nice.

    Red! I’ve always wanted a sporty red car.

    The original Roadster had many more color options than the other Tesla cars. I wouldn't be at all surprised if that continued to be true of the new ones. I suspect that almost no one would want a Model S in "Very Orange" (which was an aptly named color), but they sold Roadsters with it.

    I pretty much always go for blue. I'd like to see a brighter blue than the current offering.

    I should hope the $200k+ supercar is offered in more colors than the other models, and with better paint quality (read: more coats/depth/brilliance) too.

    Just a reminder from an old timer…

    Those were the paint and seat color options from the 1st gen Roadster. The one paint sample in the middle is Signature Green, which was only available to the first 100 cars. It may also have been possible to get custom paint from the factory if you were a real VIP or if you backed up a truckload of money to their door.

    Not saying these will be the same colors available for the new Roadster, but I would be shocked and dismayed if they only have the same very limited palette as other Teslas today. That's just not gonna fly with a $200K+ sports car.

    On the other hand… Vinyl wrap color change wasn't really a thing back in 2008. If I'm not happy with Tesla's color options, I wouldn't hesitate to get Midnight Silver and then wrap it in something more vivid… like 3M Atomic Teal or maybe Green Envy.
