Last one or two paint colors

Last one or two paint colors

So far we've seen model 3 RCs in all the current model S offered paint colors except the Midnight Silver (and possibly the obsidian black), why not? Have we just not seen one yet? Will there be a color other than the Midnight Silver offered? Does anyone know the capabilities of the new paint shop? I know the capacity is upwards of 500K a year, but what about limits to the number of different colors it can handle?

From a cost stand point, it will be better to have all color options available to all Tesla models. They already paint in batches with the S and X. So if on any given day or hour, etc. they are shooting silver, it makes sense that they send all the silver ordered cars through the booth.

That makes sense, especially since the paint booth will service both lines. I just find it curious that there isn't a Midnight Silver one yet. Unless it is just a fluke that they haven't been spraying that color on any day they've completed an RC, but that'd be a heck of a fluke.
