    I think the red car at the Motor Trend COTY award was the new red. I would not say that it's darker, but perhaps brighter with a bit more orange. It's more like a Ferrari red.

    My configuration specialist told me that the MT COTY car is the 2013 red. He also said that it would be a 3 month delay in my delivery

These were taken under skylights in the atrium of the mall when there was a heavy overcast sky. In person the 2013 red was not quite as bright as it appears in the 2nd shot on my monitor, but I suspect it will be at least that bright in full sun.

    I have reduced the resolution to 1/8 of original.
    Delicious red! Are they going to give it a proper name other than just red?

    My delivery specialist refers to it as 2013 Red. Pretty prosaic.

    More poetic, Flame or Madder. Corvette already has Magnetic Red. They could go the Apple route with New Red. Or prophetically, Ticket Magnet Red. Personally I would prefer something with a little more pop, say Kick S Red, but somehow I don't see Tesla going with that one.

    Don't care what they call it, just love it, especially now that my change from blue to red has been finalized and April/May delivery is looming.

    Did some checking and this color appears close to PMS 186. I'll be visiting the Tesla store in DC on Monday, so I'll take some PMS samples with me to check the match.

    All right.

    I like the red. I have never contemplated buying a red car in the past. I've seen the published pictured in this thread -- they seem more studio production photos.

    Just got done with the design studio. For any of you who have seen it in person or have an opinion, how much is it like the design studio?

    I first saw this red on one of the two cars on stage at the Motor Trend MOTY event in New York City. It was what set in motion my desire to change from blue to red. Like you, I've never had a red car or planned to have one. But this red... The Design Studio does not do full justice to the color.

    So, a couple questions.

    1. Is this different from the "Sunset Red" people saw on the Get Amped Tour?
    2. Is the red more like a Ferrari red and less like the deep red in the design studio?

    I've posted an album from my drive today around Cape Ann, Massachusetts, in which I've vainly attempted to capture the fickle yet seductive hues of a green Model S.

    All Red? Pure Red? Hot Red? Flash Red? Bare Red?
