    Have you named your Tesla (doesn't matter which model) and if so what did you name it and why?

    Of course I've named it, otherwise how can I call for it in a few years when they get FSD/advanced summon solved?

    But for me it needed to be R2-D2. The nice blue color and the fact that he is my co-pilot on trips, and the fact I'm a big Star Wars fan :)

    A couple summers ago, I was on a 4 day horseback ride in Yellowstone Nat. Park. I'm a larger guy and I was assigned a horse named "Big Brown." He was great. He was so tall, I couldn't see over his back. He was enormous. And he was great, right up until we got stuck in a hail storm that spooked the crap out of him. But he and I bonded in those 4 days. So, when my Model X asked me to give it a name, it was dubbed "Big Blue," after my equine buddy.

    Named my 2012 P85, serial number P01249, Frank, which is short for Frankenstein. Being one of the early production cars, it has the signature nose cone and some of the signature chrome. I think Tesla was just using up whatever hardware they had and thus Frank came into being. I love Frank.

    First one was Blue Persuasion. Because...it was Blue, my name is Christal, so it was named after the song "Crystal Blue Persuasion".her name is PennyPennyPenny now (new owners).

    My 90D is The Flying Squirrel, because it's gray and it flies.

    I named mine TARDIS, because I travel through space/time in it and it is bigger on the inside.

    I did simply because Tesla provides a field to name the cars. So mine is:

    Mine's called "Klaatu", from The Day The Earth Stood Still. I was going to name it Gort, but it doesn't have a gigawatt laser hiding behind its visor.

    If you ever notice that I've changed its name to Gort, well -- just don't drive in front of me unless you know the magic words.

    Unfortunately, I couldn't get the license plates here in CA. DMV's reason is that they cannot substitute a letter with a number. =( BOOOOO.....

    My first S (dark blue) was Blue Persuasion (my name is Chrtistal, and there was a song "Crystal Blue Persuasion", so it was Chrtistal's Blue Persuasion)

    My current S (midnight silver) is Flying Squirrel, because it's gray and flies (almost)

    My vote for the car's name was SilentButDeadly, but the wife overruled with the name RedOctober.

    Usually in the past.
    i had named my pearl white P85, "Ghost" because it's white, i ordered it on halloween and i'm a huge thrones fan.

    but i changed it to "Classic P85" because that's really what it is.

    What? You named it after a nuclear submarine?
