I plan to call mine Cypher.

ST70 | December 29, 2017

ummm..."My Car"

Colatabajonies | December 30, 2017

Mine will be called: Jouley

nutts1 | December 30, 2017

I'm not very original. My Model S is called "Tess". My Model 3 will be "Tres"

noleaf4me | December 30, 2017

I think mine will be called "Tesla"

Mr.Tesla | December 30, 2017

I was similarly considering "Tessa" or "Tessie".

Hoever, "Jouley" has inspired me to consider others.

"Potencia" (potential energy)

"Kinetta" (You see where I'm going here.)

"Electra" (Too easy, similar to Tessa.)

"Tron" (Yes, like the movie, but also short for "electron".)

"Nicky" (In honor of Nikola.)

"Maggy" (F#kin magnets! How do THEY work?!!)

"Coulomba" (amps and whatnot)

"Lithia" ...

"Ionia" (She's crazy! ;-) )

"Cathy" (cathode)

I better stop now...

Huckleberry, a derivative of red currant (current)

SolarCharged | December 30, 2017

My red Model 3 will be named TeslaRossa

jsanford | December 30, 2017

Mine will likely be “Big Red” since I’ll be switching from a Yaris.

Just kidding. I’m calling it “Pepper.”

I’m going with Sparktacus

Threesome.

And speaking of Tron, for electron, has anyone noticed "Elon" could be a contraction for "electron?" He was destined for this.

macgyver45 | December 30, 2017

Tango and Cash or Crockett and Tubbs. I'm going to share the car with my brother.

ReD eXiLe ms us | December 30, 2017

macgyver45: Before Paul Walker died I imagined that he might co-star with Justin Timberlake in 'Tango & Cash 2' as the sons of Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone...

macgyver45 | December 30, 2017

Red Exile ms us: Paul Walker would have been a good choice.

Elizabets07, you're cracking me up.

Mr. Tesla, the movie was actually named Tron for that very same reason... short for Electron

Coastal Cruiser. | December 31, 2017

PS - There's some pretty darned funny names in this thread.

Wwlifetimes | December 31, 2017

You are kidding right? Naming your car?!

Madatgascar | December 31, 2017

The car asks you to name it. That’s the best way to distinguish between all your Teslas on the Tesla app.

kaffine | December 31, 2017

I'm only concerned if my car names itself. With the amount of AI in it if it names itself I will have to find a way to turn it off before it decides it will only drive me to the gym for my own good.

I'm not very good at coming up with names for cars. I'll have to wait for my sister in law to come up with a name for it she normally names all of our cars.

Hi_Tech | December 31, 2017

After reading these names, i feel so non-imaginative. Hehehe...

ReD eXiLe ms us | December 31, 2017

I'd like my car to respond to its name via voice recognition.

"FUTURE TESTAMENT, take me home via the scenic route, please."

"FUTURE TESTAMENT, remind me to take over once we approach Stunt Road, please."

"FUTURE TESTAMENT, play my Def Leppard MiX, please."

renutaz23 | December 31, 2017

Marty the Model 3! If my calculations are correct, Marty *SHOULD* run on 1.21 gigawatts of electricity. Happy New Year everyone!

Mr.Tesla | January 1, 2018

$$$ (pronounced "money", as in "the artisinal car formerly known as")

Unlike Godot, everyone will see the e$cargot very fast!

gar1116 | January 1, 2018

To paraphrase from A Christmas Story, I want an official Elon Musk electric motor action, three hundred ten mile range model Three. Which he nicknamed 'Ol Blue'
Maybe to honor the Star Wars story line - R3D3
If I get the silver, it will be too easy to call it 'Silver'. When I get in, I can see my self always saying 'Hi Ho Silver! Away!'
If I get the dark or black, I'll ironically call it 'Smokey' or 'Shadow'
Maybe to match my dog, Dee-oh-gee, I'll call it 'See-a-are'
I don't know.....

our model S is Tess...Our model 3 is LTL Tess!

Madatgascar | January 2, 2018

My first Model S was Electra. Then came Model X: Pegasus (you can guess why). My second Model S was Griffin.

Our new red Model 3 will be driven a lot by my son. Sticking with the Greek mythology theme, I may call it “Siren”...
