    With the close ties Elon Musk seems to have with the Trumper, let's hope the Model 3 is not renamed.
    The reason why I'm wondering this is that the implications of nicknaming it, "Model T", could have far reaching political advantages for Tesla and it would circumvent the trademark name Ford owns. This is just what Elon wanted in the first place!

    Tesla Model E was renamed to Model ≡ due to threat of lawsuit from Ford.

    I have never heard about Model ≡ to be renamed.

    What is this about?

    It's not about anything. It has not been renamed, most probably won't be, but a "what if' scenario!
    It could even be a new car down the line, not Model 3. Just saying. That's all. Don't take it seriously! LOL!

    Elon Musk is not behind that account.

    Not to be expected.
    A new Model "Trump" developing, would mean release is in about 3 years... when the next president elect is already waiting to enter the White House :p

    Au contraire. If the economy picks up steam, I'm seeing a 2018 limited edition"Trumpster" being offered. :D

    Seeing as Obama increased poverty by millions, reducing the number of people able to buy a Tesla, if Trump reduces poverty more people will be able to buy a Tesla.
