Elon Musk's personal Model S reveals new prototype Tesla colour

We believe it's called 'Deep Crimson'

1w ago


Currently, Tesla offers just five colours for the Model S and rest of the Tesla range. This is very few when you consider just how many its competitors offer, but this is all about to change.

Elon Musk's personal Tesla Model S has been seen sporting a potentially brand new prototype colour called 'Deep Crimson' and it is a gorgeous looking dark purple.

Over the last year, Elon Musk has been talking about Tesla building the “most-advanced paint shop” at Gigafactory Berlin and this might just be one of the first colours we will see. He also said that Tesla is working on a new ‘deep crimson red’ that is becoming his favorite colour and this is likely to be just that.

Tesla was initially concerned about introducing too many new colours as it reduced the ability to have a streamlined production line and complicated service repairs but it looks like this is changing.

Tesla's new German Gigafactory in Berlin is set to be completed by the summer of 2021 to first produce the Model Y, so maybe we will see this new colour option on that? Who knows at this point in time.

Do you like this new colour?

What other colours would you like to see Tesla do?

    • Oh! Come on, don't tell me the whole 'it's not purple, it's a mix of Deep Blue and Light Red with a tint of Black' it's purple!

  • Like the colour and wheel combo, really looks good. My only problem is the design is 8 years old and as such doesn’t feel fresh like a taycan does. Probably buy an older one and get it wrapped at half the price.

  • Tesla offers like no optional extras which is kind of stupid - limited rims, limited paints, limited interior choices. The only thing you can buy is autopilot and we all know that’s a bit questionable

  • That looks like the same colour as a vet's forearm.....

  • Looks good, I’d call it Midnight Violet Sonata however, the name of paint is irrelevant. Their new paint shop should be legit.
