    I named my Model 3 "George". Partly so I can pretend to be Lenny from "Of Mice and Men" and partly so I can sing "George, George, George of the Jungle, Watch out for that tree!" when I engage AutoSteer.

    What did you name your car?

    Naming things is harder than cache invalidation, so to save a little mental energy we named it “The Grey Car”, AKA, “The Tesla”.

    Chipie.

    * My usual handle is cybik
    * A dear friend of mine suggested Hippocampe for interesting etymological reasons
    * I portmanteaud the two: cybik+hippocampe > chippocampe > chipie
    * As my unit is an All-Wheel Drive, it also has the second pun level, as "chipie" is a french word hinting at one's deviousness :3

    GLaDOS from the video game 'Portal'. It's a rogue AI machine that tries to kill the player.... Seemed fitting
