The color Vectrex prototype is actually just a regular Vectrex with a few modifications to it. The actual concept behind what would become the actual, mass-produced color model (having a flat screen) never made it past the idea stage.

This prototype doesn't actually generate different colors at once, but rather one color at a time; e. g. it can only display everything in yellow or red.

Only one is known to exist to this day.
