Getting the ideal color for your car is a key part of the buying process. Tesla recognizes this and has been investing, substantially, in improving its factory paint shops worldwide. In April, Elon Musk tweeted, "Giga Berlin will have world's most advanced paint shop, with more layers of stunning colors that subtly change with curvature."  

In addition, Musk also followed up with a tweet noting that Fremont and Shanghai paint shops would soon be "upgraded" as well. That said, Tesla buyers are still only offered a handful of color options. What about those car buyers out there who want a larger palette of colors?

And what about the Cybertruck? That's only available in (gasp!) one color option. Pondering this, one of Musk's Twitter followers asked if the stainless steel Cybertruck would be available in any different colors. Musk responded, "You will be able to wrap it in any color or pattern." Hmmm.

Interestingly, Tesla has showcased its cars (at least in prototype versions) in a wrap. A Model 3 actually appeared at Tesla's official launch event in a matte black vinyl wrap. This early matte black Model 3 prototype appeared in Tesla's own video footage to promote the brand (see an archived clip from this video below).
