    He obviously has not had anyone read the back of his car and say "What's a TeL-sa"?

    As a long time vocal fan of the T-man, with more than one T book on the shelf, the company name was one of things that put me over the top in excitement. We proudly love saying we drive a Tesla.

    Now about the name "Model S"....

    A google search on 'model s' brings up a lot of sites with 'models'. I don't want to talk about what happens with 'Model X'.
