    How long before Ford sues over "Model E"?

    This will make many folks happy. I still think it'll be easier to type 3 on the boards, but I love the idea of the stylized badge.

    I do believe this is why it became Model 3 in the first place.

    *edit* from the article

    Yep, and I believe if Tesla puts Model Ξ on the back, Ford will simply say -
    As a shareholder, it's a bit annoying to see them do something that is just asking Ford to sue them, IMHO. Maybe the legal staff is bored these days. :confused:

    Tried it...didn't get anything close. :( Got the short form of 'please' in some stylized font.

    I'm not on Windows so I can't be much help. I'm on a Mac and I have it setup as a quick text replace function since it's built into the OS. Chrome has an extension that does the same thing if you're using that browser. It's called Auto Text Expander.

    I'm going to rain on this parade because to me, that DOES demonstrate that Tesla Motors considers the three stylized horizontal lines as its new vehicle's LOGO but, just as the logo for an iconic Ford Motors sporty car is a galloping horse - and further examples are endless - that vehicle's OFFICIAL NAME is "Mustang". likewise, the official name for TM's new automobile will be, as they have provided again and again, "Model 3".

    We are, thank heavens, not yet in an era where everyone can put down some stars-&-moon-& pile-of-dirt on a piece of paper and say "That's my name".
