Toronto Red isn't orange in the slightest.

For those that have not seen Toronto "Red" in person... well, it's not red.
I beg to differ
You can differ all you like. If you need help, park ANY red car next to it, then get back to us.

///Unless of course you see in multiple shades of gray, in which case... cannot help you see any different color.

Do you know something new or are you drawing conclusions from more camouflage coming off and what seems like a larger corporate audience that are allowed a peak?

I'm just inferring based on the extra tidbits they are allowing us to see, but I have seen the camouflaged car here in SoCal. The silhouette is really muscular.

Maybe. No silver at launch, though?

All pretty valid reasons to conduct an investigatory traffic stop.


It didn't look too bad, but the front was still masked/obscured pretty heavily (...like the photos on the forum), so I didn't get the full effect of the plate/front grill combination.

"From that strange bulge on the front end of your car, I am concerned that you might be smuggling several pounds of illegal drugs and one or more illegal immigrants. Could you please remove that ridiculous padding for me?"

yeah, i'm pretty sure I saw one on the road up here in norcal too - looked cool from the rear.

You totally shoulda gone aggressive-lane-change; that's an easy winner.

Again, I beg to differ. In the light, sunlight in particular, Toronto red is red. SO is orange.

Do we know if the confirmed colors (Toronto red, isle of man, portimao + frozen, etc) are standard colors, or will some of them be designated as individual or semi-individual?
