The steering knuckle on the 1st gen was made of cast iron and painted black. From the video's, it looks like the new steering knuckles are either aluminum or painted aluminum colour. What do you think?

Silver, combined with a grey day, does not do the car any favors. Honestly a really puzzling marketing choice to go with silver as the primary release color.

I guess it’s understandable though since when you look out on the road nearly every car is grey, silver, white, or black. Consumers these days are so lame, lol.

Could just be prototype units. I am pretty sure it is cheaper and faster to straight machine a couple parts for low volume r&d than it is to set up the tooling to cast, then machine the same part.

This seems to be the color palette offered for most cars these days...

Even at this far from mass production, they want tooling, process, shape, and material that is as close to production as possible. The project Iím working on is over a year from SOP and we are doing production tooling now.

You are so right!!! What happened to all the fun colors cars used to come in?

Grey, gray, silver, white, black. Those are the colors of asphalt. Is everyone trying to blend in with the road surface in some sort of horribly misguided attempt at camouflage???

I can understand the proverbial traditional 'family sedan' (= SUV these days) being selected in some sort of somber, boring color to reflect its equally pedestrian duty purely as a transportation device. But sports cars are supposed to be all about fun. For me, color is a very important part of that equation. Color has often been a deal-breaker for me in buying (or not buying as the case has been) certain cars (yeah, I know, I'm not right in the head; my wife reminds me of this several times a day).

The right color can beautifully accentuate and highlight the lines of a car. It can also take an otherwise plain looking car and make it fun. Colors are just plain fun.

I need bright, saturated, primary colors. Preferably non-metallics. Reds. Blues. Greens. Orange. The 4 cars we currently own are red (BRZ), blue (WRX), and two orange (Crosstrek and Mustang).

Maybe the slide into depressing, boring car colors is a reflection of a deeper rotting of our collective souls. A lot of people don't seem to have the mirthful sense of humor and light-hearted outlook on life of past years. For a lot of people, life has gotten more difficult in recent years. Having to work harder, longer hours, multiple jobs. Throw in divisive political turmoil and a global pandemic, and I can see how a lot of people might not be exactly feeling cheerful and carefree these days. Maybe the drab, muted colors so many people prefer for their cars reflects deeper dull, lackluster feelings.

Which is all the more reason to bring a little harmless fun into life with fun car colors!

The loss of greens has been especially distressing to me. It's so hard to find any green on any car model these days (major kudos to Toyota for offering the Hakone edition). How can you argue with the beauty of a color like this (not mine, just a pic from the internet):
