GeorgeB's recent posting at the other forums site offers a good look at the new red color available next year.
IMO, it is far too "hot", and the entire web site here is "decorated" with so called "Sig" Red "S"'s, which once seen, you realise you can't have. As that "dark" red is only for Signature cars.
I find it very odd that the red, a so called signature color, would not be made available to everyone.
After all, the BLACK, WHITE and SILVER are. So what is so special about the red?
Since when does the color dictate the "pedigree" of a car.
You've got the side markings with "Founders series" and what not, let it go at that.
I happen to have always driven a "dark" red car; from my first 1970's era Mini, Lexus, Range Rover, to my current Nissan Leaf (albeit tainted with hideous "rust") ...
I am 100% behind Tesla and EV in general, but this color choice to me is a ridiculous marketing decision.
There are already a couple cosmetic issues about the car I find really bad - red turn signals at the rear.
So to sound really childish and selfish; TM, you need to make this "sig" red available to everyone per the illusion on your web site. Others might even suggest VISUAL "bait and switch"?
I, for one, would try to buy a used one with that colour (good like finding one with the config as well) or even pass.
Thanks for your time.
