    I'm torn between the orange the matte black shown at the unveil.

    I’ve never legitimately considered owning a red car until I saw the pictures of the deep red version of the Model 3. It looks sharp!

    I’m hoping that with the large amount of these that will one day be on the road, Tesla will offer significantly more color options than what we currently see in the Design Studio for S/X.

    I would love to see Tesla offer the Model 3 in a wide variety of unique and exciting colors, much the same as Apple did with the early iMacs.

    You don't want matte anything.

    Don't think I'll know until I can see the overall car with options. I'm very much a dark color person and the darker colors are great but could look strange unless the rims/wheels are properly colored. Not sure on the cost of all that, so, will have to wait a bit I guess...

    Those were posted by bayol in another thread.

    White pearl on gunmetal/black rims for me.

    I quite like the silver colour at the unveil or the light gunmetal grey (a bit like BMW space grau) as shown by Electrik. The car is so well designed and has such a beautiful, elegant and sporty shape that it is ashame to choose a dark colour. Don't like matte, also not very practical, I think

    I'll never own a black car again. Black paint is the softest and the contrast shows every tiny knick and hairline scratches prominently. I'm inclined to go with silver just for this reason, but will make my mind up for sure later.

    Why would I not want matte paint? Scratches?

    It would be awesome if they had a color similar to BMW's Estoril Blue II

    I'll have to wait until I know what all the colors actually will be, but right now I'm leaning toward silver. I really love the matte black, but after hearing from everyone about how dirty it gets, I don't think I can do it.

    Metallic orange.

    Really hope that the 3 will be available in a much wider range of colors than the S/X. Suspect the new paint shop will allow Tesla to do that.

    Pictures do not always do either a vehicle or it's colour justice...I was at the event, and to me, the Red stood out the most...it was truly electrifying!
