Tan Interior Color Is Not Accurate On TM Website

Thank you Dave for letting me photograph your Signature Model S today. I'd seen posters say that the actual tan interior was different than the yellow-orange version shown in the website renderings, so I'm posting these photos and a Photoshopped comparison of the interior computer rendering. IMHO the actual tan interior is more attractive than shown on the website, as it's more subtle and refined. Thanks again Dave.

Nice job, Getting Amped Soon. Your version is much more accurate, based on the pics you took, and what I have seen in person. I have wondered why Tesla hasn't made the appropriate changes to Design Studio themselves.

Darn, I liked the website version better. But I guess this is not what this thread is about. Kind of reminds you of choosing a mail order bride.

The real in car shots look quite a bit lighter than the "actual" rendering above. Anyone else think so?

Yes, I prefer the brighter more yellow 'tan' in the graphic much more too. However, I was already prepared for what it really was going to be after seeing the actual leather seat sample at one of the early 'Get Amped' events.

There are a few really nice Porsche's and Ferrari's that have brighter yellow/tan leather, that I was originally hoping for, however, it is what it is.

One thing that is hard to see (which I didn't notice until I actually looked at the real samples) is the carbon-fiber accents actually has a tiny amount of the tan color in it, thus the tan / black / carbon-fiber looks really custom (IMHO).

I agree with nickjhowe - the original photos were unretouched but digital photos are affected by lighting,quality of the camera, etc. I adjusted them a bit as best I could to represent what I saw with my eyes.

Take a look again, thanks. They are pretty accurate now.

Someone post this on the forum please. It is the replacement for the original. Thanks.

You can go to your photo and display the appropriate sized version and then get the URL. This can be inserted here using the ing < img src="URL" > tag

Thanks Alex K.

Yup much nicer in person and very similiar to the BMW/mini tan

@Getting Amped Soon - nearly there! Keep tying. Lose the space next to the < and put quotes around the URL.

Also - the forum does a crap job of handling large pixel size images. Make sure the image is resized fairly small. Use the dropdown in Flickr. You just need to cut and paste the highlighted text below:

Why does my ignorance have to be on display for the entire planet? Flag as "doesn't know what he is doing".

Jeez if you edit it in Flickr and save over it, you still get busted links. Enough!

I'm still concerned about the ripples in the seat fabric. I saw it first on the beta cars, but it looks like Dave has it too:

My Range Rover is 10 years old and the leather is still tight and ripple free. Ditto my wife's five year old Lexus. Is everyone seeing this rippling on the Model S? Is anyone worried?

Hey nickjhowe - how about posting in my replacement post so this thread can die a quick death? Thanks.

I have those in my BMW tan but it is jut always like that vs the Infiniti is tighter, but has actual wrinkles and creases after a few years,

@Getting Amped - I think if the forum has taught us anything it is that old threads don't die - and duplicate threads definitely don't!!!

I'll cross post.
