I pulled up next to a Black 60 yesterday(I-5 south in Seattle) and noticed that his door handles were also black. The design studio shows them as silver. Is this custom or standard?
I bet they wrapped them in vinyl.
Chrome is the only current option from Tesla.
Tesla does has a test vehicle with all the chrome blacked out, including the handles. I saw it while charging at the Gilroy superchargers. Rather cool looking. The employee said it was painted, not a wrap. Just something they were trying out as a design study, with no commitment to actually making it available.
Tesla only offers the door handles in chrome.
The ones you saw were probably wrapped in vinyl (only the outer facing surface). Painting is also an option. There are several owners across the country who have changed the color of the door handles.
