New Tesla Model S is visible on Tesla's Freemont Flyover teaser - and it is sporting Elon Musk's favorite "Deep Crimson" paint. Is it a cryptic message that it will be available soon?
Last July 2020, Elon Musk specifically mentioned that he is exceptionally interested in a new Tesla paint color. He confirmed that it would be available for all Tesla vehicles produced in Gigafactory Berlin.
The paint is known as "Deep Crimson," a cryptic color later seen on the streets as Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, drove the newly-painted Model S to SpaceX's headquarters located in Hawthorne, California.
New Tesla Model S 'Deep Crimson'
As of June 2021, the "deep crimson" paint is not yet offered by Tesla Inc., primarily because of the company's current color set-up on only about five shades. With the limited color options, it might be time to add some spice into the mix.
With that information in mind, Teslarati recently reported that during the Freemont Factory Flyover teaser, the drone operator got the chance to capture a partially covered Tesla Model S variant. However, the car does not have the company's signature colors like the cars around it. The stand-out vehicle proudly boasts its "deep crimson" shade.
It seems to be remarkably similar to the Model S that Musk was seen driving in 2020.
The fact that the car's cover was partially open can indicate that Tesla is now hinting to everyone that they are reproducing one of their famous models in Musk's favorite paint.
However, it could also be the company's attempt to divert users' attention to the good instead of the bad. Tesla now recalls thousands of cars - particularly Model S and Model Y.
Tesla's New Paint Options
The rumors about Tesla's brand new paint options have been circulating since last year. However, Musk recently mentioned that the color options will be stunning on their own, and will be launched directly at the Gigafactory in Berlin.
Musk also added that the paint shops at Fremont Factory and Gigafactory Shanghai would be updated soon. The company decided to push through with the update to allow the facilities to support Tesla's latest, advanced paint shops.
Nevertheless, changes like this would take some time. In the industry, it is a well-known fact that it is tough to retrofit a facility that has already been operating.
Furthermore, the permit process conflicts that Gigafactory Berlin is facing right now might cause Tesla to launch its newly upgraded paint shop at Gigafactory Texas instead.
After all, Gigafactory Texas will launch with another cult-favorite, the Model Y, so establishing the new paint shop on this site would make sense. The factory is also getting fitted for some advanced machines that Tesla is currently using.
One of Gigafactory Texas' upgrades might include a paint shop that can produce unique shades like "deep crimson." This could further enhance the company's selection, as Tesla owners may start experimenting with various shades.
