What are the most popular exterior colors that people are choosing?

I went with Silver, but have not seen many. However, I am interested in what other people have chosen.

gasnomo | March 4, 2013

I actually hope very few people pick mine :) ...I went with green....

mlaiken | March 4, 2013

I chose black and around LA I have seen mostly black and white. I would say silver and gray would be next in popularity.

Velo1 | March 4, 2013

Midnight Blue here, grey leather, too.

Brian H | March 4, 2013

Real Orange.
Oh, wait ...

glaserud | March 4, 2013

Brian: Visiting Tesla on saturday, there was a Real Orange Roadster standing next to the MS. Asked my wife if maybe that's the color we should go for. She said no. :(

BYT | March 4, 2013

Pearl White has always been my fave for the Model S, Black would be a second with the Midnight Blue as a close 3rd! :) I finalized in early February for my Dad's Model S, he went Silver.

riceuguy | March 4, 2013

Silver here.

Dr. Bob Reinke | March 4, 2013

Love my Signature Red. It is the most lustrous color we have seen. Liked it so much we changed our order to Signature.

jbherman | March 4, 2013

Pearl White here

DLM270 | March 4, 2013

Multi-Coat Red, if it ever shows up in production.

Shesmyne2 | March 4, 2013

Midnight blue, black roof, grey 21" wheels, grey leather, carbon int. waiting for spoiler...

sshrivas | March 4, 2013

White with body colored roof.

cloroxbb | March 4, 2013

Mine will be Green

chadrchristensen79 | March 4, 2013

Sshrivas +1

White body colored roof

rmbod | March 4, 2013

I have midnight blue and man does it show the dirt!!! i feel like i will be spending a lot of money keeping this car clean. it sure is beautiful when its clean, but if i had to do it all over again i think i would pick the dolphin grey

RedShift | March 4, 2013

Dark blue, grey.

If they had a bluish silver, I'd take that with black interior.

npatel23 | March 4, 2013

Grey and love it

Swigg66 | March 4, 2013

has anyone seen a silver with 19 inch rims? and does it look nice?

pencil2man | March 4, 2013

The salespeople told me that the 4 most popular colors are black, white grey & silver, (in no particular order). Ordered silver with grey leather.

JZ13 | March 4, 2013

I have Pearl White and I love it but unfortunately I see too many other white Tesla's. I think around OC it's the most common color.

Shesmyne2 | March 4, 2013

Love the silver w/chrome rims. Looks very sleek!

christine_orita | March 4, 2013

Yes, pearl white with body colored roof.
Jz13, yes, there does seem to be quite a few of us in OC.

Where in OC are you?

cmarkortiz | March 4, 2013

anyone have a live pic of the brown im curious as to what it really looks like

christine_orita | March 4, 2013

They had 1 in the Newport beach, fashion island Tesla parking this last weekend.
Rich chocolate brown. I personally don't like brown as a color in general so I didn't care for it..

Captain_Zap | March 4, 2013

Signature Red ;)

jat | March 4, 2013

@Swigg66 - that's what I have and I like it.

elam9702 | March 4, 2013

Midnight blue outside, tan inside. It's sweet.

Swigg66 | March 4, 2013

thanks for posting the pictures it looks amazing!!

EcLectric | March 4, 2013

I've seen a lot of Model S's, but I've never seen Brown or Green! Mine is blue, and I love it!

JZ13 | March 4, 2013

@Christine. In Newport. In fact one night last week while making the short drive to Bandera I saw a white S on the way to the restaurant and a different white S (1 had temp tags, 1 had permament tags) on the way home! They are everywhere! How long have you had yours? I'm about 10 days in.

bshortell | March 4, 2013

Watch for me in my Sig Red in OC. Plate is Nil Oil.

bradslee | March 4, 2013

Mine is silver and agree with Swigg66 that silver is not very popular color. I have told by Tesla people that black is still the most popular color among MS owners. I think no matter of what color you have chosen with your MS, she is always beautiful.

RAFellows | March 4, 2013

Someone over at TMC is keeping track of Orders, Deliveries, VINs and color. Of the 296 folks who have volunteered info on their cars, 20.6% are Blue, 17.6% Grey, 17.2% White (probably includes Pearl), 12.8% Black, 12.2% Red (must be Signature Red since these are for cars delivered), 8.8% Green, 7.8% Silver and finally 3% Brown. With 296 entries it covers close to 10% of the total delivered and is probably close to actual, but then I'm no statistician.
I think we will have to bribe someone over at the factory to get the real results. :)

christine_orita | March 4, 2013

@jz13, the one with temp tag could be me! I do go to fashion island quite a bit.
I took delivery 2/22 and already logged 1030 miles.
Looking for every excuse to take my baby out :-)

I will soon be mounting license plates with LvTesla (v is a heart shape)

JZ13 | March 4, 2013

@Christine - awesome! I'll keep an eye out for you.

rterry | March 5, 2013

Love my silver!!!

Brian H | March 5, 2013

You mean L♥Tesla or ♥Tesla? ☺

Opus | March 5, 2013

My soon to be 85kWh will be Midnight Blue with Grey Leather. Funny thing is that with so few around, there's already a Blue MS in the garage at my office.

hnashif | March 5, 2013

Mine is grey w/grey leather. IN general, I am not a fan of grey. But the Tesla (dolphin) grey has blue undertones that I love. I would call that steel blue.

cschock | March 5, 2013

I got green with grey leather and matte obeche wood. Seemed like a very elegant combination and I figured the green would be rare.

Thomas E | March 5, 2013

hnashif I agree with grey/grey. Ii seems sometimes blue and sometimes black, but mostly awesome grey

EJH | March 5, 2013

I really like the new red, and put it together with the black interior(I have two small dogs), silver 21" wheels,
P85, Pano roof, twin chargers, CF.
Ordered 08/12, finalized 01/13, delivery 05/13.
#406 in Canada, so this is going to be quite a rarity up here!

mira_joh | April 21, 2014

I've just ordered model S in brown and still debating over changing it to black. Any brown tesla owners out there? Did it meet your expectations? Would you change the color if given a choice now? Is it easy to keep it clean ?
I would appreciate any suggestions!

NO2PTRL | April 21, 2014

Lovin my Pearl White, with the 21 inch black rims.

Kutu | April 21, 2014

There are way too many silver cars now-a-days, Toyotas, Hondas, Kias, Chevys etc.,therefore I went wild and ordered a grey Tesla! :-)

rbgliny | April 21, 2014

Silver and white.

sbeggs | April 21, 2014


Kind of Blue! It's beautiful.
