Model S Performance, VIN 02595. Blue, Tan, Matte Obeche. Best car I've ever driven.
Could be a case of Tesla just holding a hard line on "no changes". If they let you change your color, they open the floodgates. They'd have to allow everyone to do something like that. Imagine the extra overhead and confusion of a bunch of people changing their minds on things. That could be a nightmare. Perhaps Tesla just wants to avoid the entire can of worms.
P1577, VIN 1653, 85 kWh, Dolphin Gray, 19" wheels, Black leather, Piano black interior, Pano roof, Tech package, Sound studio, air suspension.
Burning electrons since 2012.
Artsci did you get one of those "Do you want your car in December?" emails? People in the 7000's have reported getting one so maybe your car really is in production!
Update - #8911 got an email, noted in the Model-S-December-Production-email thread
Model S 60kWh, Catalina white, white roof, tan, obeche gloss, tech, 19", air suspension, twin chargers, supercharger access, rear jump seats, parcel shelf. VIN 3606
Been on the production side of things and have to take Tesla's side... Body may be well ahead of powertrain thus yours may be too far down the road to change. Remember the "1000 chasis made" deal. Perhaps they set a white body in motion when you finalized.
I judge people by what they do and not so much what they say. Tesla has done a LOT of good things which leads me to trust them just a bit more when they say the CAN NOT change. That being said, its not my car. I do hope you reach a conclusion that works for you.
BTW, the blue is friggin GORGEOUS. I almost didn't get a signature so I could get that color before I even saw it in real life. I saw it in Costa Mesa on Monday and although I love my car, I do have pangs of jealousy over that color. Don't know if that makes you feel any better.

Just PM'd George B. I have enormous respect for him so I'll abide by what he says with no further issues.

Just checked my spam blocker. The December delivery email was there. So the judgment about where I was in production was probably right. Who would have figured?
