    Now that we have Xs being delivered and spotted on the road, we should determine how we are abbreviate our cars.

    Thus far, I've called mine an S85 for "non-Performance, 85 kWh, RWD". Now, the 40s, 60s, and 85s are easy, but what happens for the 70 and 90?

    Do we say S90D for "Model S, non-Performance, 90 kWh, Dual Motor"? If so, then we can use X90D for the Model X of the same.

    But what about the performance models? Most people say they have a P90D or P90D or P90DL (ludicrous). But that won't resolve whether it's a Model S or X unless enough context is there. Do we say SP90DL (or underline instead of "L"), XP90DL, S90D, X90D, S70D, X70D, S90, S85, S60?

    As you point out, the P models are the ones that will be the main issue. I guess XP90D, X P90D, or something along those lines would be acceptable for that.

    The non-Ps already have a convention where S is used in the front, so replacing that with X will make the context clear.

    One thing I found interesting is that apparently Tesla internally doesn't refer to them as, for example, the S85D - I had several Tesla people be puzzled when I called my first car an "S60" - one of them pointed out that "oh, my mother is driving a Volvo, too".
    So according to the Tesla people I've asked, It's Model S and Model X - and then what's on the badge. So it's a "60" or a "70D" or a "P90D". And when unsure you'll have to add Model S or Model X to it.

    Yes, officially the S prefix doesn't apply. But for the purposes of communication on the forum, it is useful shorthand (no one wants to type Model S 60 when when they can type S60), esp. now that there is a Model X.

    I try hard to add "Model S" or "Model X." All the abbreviations for that seem clunky to me and it's only a few more characters.
