    Tesla is now advertising white pearl as standard on the Y. What does that mean for those that have already ordered white? Secondly, is this an indication of Tesla now wanting more orders for the Y (at the expense of the 3)? Are we closer to delivery than the advertised late 2020?

    The reason they made white standard is because of the amount of work and cost involved with the other colors they determined that white is the most cost effective, even if it's pennies they are trying to shave $ anywhere they can

    I just suspect that anything that is happening to the Y config is just fallout from the other configs.

    I already reserved a white Y so when I edited the design with the same config, I saved $2K.

    White also hides paint imperfections the best
