Elon Musk said he is retiring two of seven Tesla color options from his electric car range on Wednesday — Obsidian Black Metallic and Metallic Silver – to help speed up production times.

There will be five remaining options available as of Wednesday – Solid Black, Midnight Silver Metallic, Deep Blue Metallic, Pearl-White Multi-Coat, and Red Multi-Coat.

Tesla on Tuesday said it manufactured 2,020 Model 3 vehicles in the last week of its first quarter – but missed its target of 2,500.
Some senior employees have recently jumped ship too, including head of HR Gabrielle Toledano.
You can still get the Obsidian Black & Silver Metallic colors as a special request, but Musk said it would be at a higher price.
