Alright....I want to hear all the clever names that everyone is planning on giving their new baby...ahem... I mean model 3!
I plan to call mine Cypher.
Mine will be called: Jouley
I'm not very original. My Model S is called "Tess". My Model 3 will be "Tres"
I think mine will be called "Tesla"
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)
"Ionia" (She's crazy! ;-) )
I better stop now...
Huckleberry, a derivative of red currant (current)
My red Model 3 will be named TeslaRossa
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
And speaking of Tron, for electron, has anyone noticed "Elon" could be a contraction for "electron?" He was destined for this.
Tango and Cash or Crockett and Tubbs. I'm going to share the car with my brother.
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...
Red Exile ms us: Paul Walker would have been a good choice.
Planning on getting our Model 3 in red, and its name shall be Sheogorath!
Rowan (Gaelic: “little red one”)
In anticipation of FSD: James
from the money I made In the market to pay for it this year
'Thunder Snow' for my white model 3
Johnny Cab v.9
Elizabets07, you're cracking me up.
Mr. Tesla, the movie was actually named Tron for that very same reason... short for Electron
PS - There's some pretty darned funny names in this thread.
You are kidding right? Naming your car?!
The car asks you to name it. That’s the best way to distinguish between all your Teslas on the Tesla app.
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.
After reading these names, i feel so non-imaginative. Hehehe...
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."
Marty the Model 3! If my calculations are correct, Marty *SHOULD* run on 1.21 gigawatts of electricity. Happy New Year everyone!
$$$ (pronounced "money", as in "the artisinal car formerly known as")
Unlike Godot, everyone will see the e$cargot very fast!
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.....
gar1116 +1 !
If I get a blue one I'm thinking "Blue Bayou"
Proper name Evelyn, but call her Evie (EV).
I don't know.
our model S is Tess...Our model 3 is LTL Tess!
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”...
