    I received my title for my Model S and lo and behold, the Nevada DMV has decided to signify Tesla as TERD in their make category as shown in the attached image. It's weird because my registration paper has the make as TESLA. Any other Nevadans get their title? Doesn't really matter since the VIN matches up and whatnot, but thought it was a bit comical.

    Should be cheap to insure a TERD.

    Your terd has a very low coefficient of drag.

    Could this be the work of a rogue anti-Tesla DMV employee? I'm thinking of going to the DMV to have them check, but then again, it's quite unique if it is a "mistake".

    I really don't understand this. TERD does not resemble TESLA in any way. They might as well use BARK or SMUF.
