There are still conflicting reports on what options will be first produced. I sent aptera an email asking them to configure my vehicle in whatever way will get mine delivered at the earliest date possible. I suspect that even if you ask aptera directly they can’t answer that accurately, at least not until production starts. My Guestamation would be Selecting a custom color may delay your delivery date if you are one of the very early reservation holders and placed your order December 2020. On the other hand if you just barely placed your order recently it’s possible that selecting a custom color may move you up the line.
