    Any pictures of this color in the wild? Wondering how scratches show up on this. Swirl marks don't really show up on light colors, traditionally at least.

    Thanks for those links. I am giving my Red S85 Classic to my father, and will get a new 85D. Red looks the best IMO on the MS, but we don't want practically the same two cars in the family. Midnight Silver is pretty cool, but Titanium seems very unique.

    Any idea on the difference in insurance rates for S85 and P85D? Geico tells me that they are "told" by Tesla via my VIN that I have a "performance" and they price it according to that. Would a P85D change insurance rates at all, if that's the case?

    To avoid confusion, let's stick with Tesla's color terminology.
    There is no "Titanium Silver" color.
    There is "Titanium Metallic" (goldish light brown), "Midnight Silver Metallic" (dark silver) and "Silver Metallic" (light silver).
    I know it is a bit confusing. I have a hard time keeping them straight. I just refer to the Tesla website when in doubt.
    In the post just above are photos of a Titanium Metallic car.
    The first two photos in the first EV Obsession article that Zach linked to appear to be of a Titanium Metallic X.

    I thought Titanium looked... boring, until I saw it in person. It's actually really nice. I'd put it as my 3rd favorite color.

    If it had been available in late 2013 when I ordered my S I would have ordered Titanium Metallic instead of Silver Metallic. I love it.

    Wonder how it would look with Tesla's grey rims, or black rims.

    I ordered Titanium Metallic hoping for delivery in December. Would love to see a picture with the titanium wheels which I plan to upgrade to aftermarket once the OEM 19"s are worn out. BTW...I ordered with tan Gen 2 seats interior with black Alcantera (sic). Always had black and silver so figured it was time for a change.

    what i gather from these posts is that the titanium color really pops in the sun, no so much in overcast weather. sooooo.. perfect southern california color!

    Hard to tell upside down but looks like the exact color combination I bought including Titanium. Of course this is a picture from our design sheet. We went with the carbon fiber is the only real difference. Don't have the car yet.
