    That's too bad. I saw one live for the first time today. That's a very subtle and sophisticated color. It had great depth in the sunlight. The rose highlights really came through. From afar in the shade it was almost black. He had it accented with a couple small gold pinstripes and it had the camel top. That wouldn't be a color I would normally consider but in the sun I liked it.

    That's a shame - Black Rose provided a very nice extension to the spectrum of colors available.

    I just hope Black Rose doesn't turn out to be more rare than good ol' Lime Rock Green, when we have the final production numbers.
    Current Vettes:
    '68 Lemans Blue 327/350 Convertible
    '91 Turquoise Convertible w/hardtop
    '14 Lime Rock Green 2LT Convertible, Black Top, Kalahari, 7-Speed, Performance Exhaust - Ordered on 4-1-2014, 2000 Status on 4-10-2014, TPW 5-12-2014, Built on 5-16-2014, Picked-up at dealership on 5-30-2014

    There will be multiple new colors once the new paint shop comes fully online. Rumors of a new green, a new orange, and who knows what else.

    I'm still waiting for the Pearl White. Has anyone heard of GM introducing it for 18? I read some rumors but that's all.

    You're right, but that "old man" color had to go. It belongs on a Cadillac CT6. In 1985, it was called Black Cherry on the Fleetwood. There, it looked great.

    Well it is my favorite color. Wish it was available when I got mine. With respect to "old man color" if mine was Black Rose and you pulled up next to me at a stop light others would look at yours and say does it have even have a v8 in it!

    I think the color list for 2018 has already been finalized based on the information shared at the Bash last month with Ceramic Metallic Gray being the only new color this year. Personally, I'm starting to doubt we will see any new fantastic colors until the C8 arrives. I expect the ZR1 to be released later this summer/early fall prior to the plant re-opening and it will be the cherry on top of the C7 generation with a 2-year run leading into the C8 (mid-engine?) debut in 2020.

    That's when I think the new colors produced by the improved paint facility to be introduced. GM already confirmed the first existing color to be produced by the new paint facility later this year will be Arctic White. Probably a safe choice based on all the production line changes.

    The color list of C7 colors is actually finalized within GM through through the end of the generation (around 2021).

    However with Black Rose going bye-bye the end of July, we will see at least one new color for 2018 released during the Plant closure.

    I really wish they'd offer more non-metallic, modern looking colors.

    Still waiting to see one in person. Hopefully in the sun light.
