Yea, you would also think in this day and age with all the technology and automation capabilities, that customers would just be able to pick any color and the input to the order would feed right to the robotics and spritz the body any color….
Sort of. You want paint mixed really well and you'd need to make sure the paint was well purged for each car. You'd need all the spray equipment to purge and any mixing equipment, plus overspray concerns on handling equipment. Its not really as simple as feeding RGB paints into a sprayer. That sort of setup would result in some inconsistent paint and crash repairs would get interesting with paint mixed on the fly.

They could offer more standard colors, but I assume they schedule a bunch of the same color in a row for the same reasons. Its more efficient to set that up. More colors means harder scheduling and more color changes.
