Is Tesla Looking To Sell “SEXY” Brand?

January 3rd, 2014 by  


We all know the phrase — “sex sells.” I saw an interesting comment a month or so ago noting that, if Tesla’s next model is the Tesla Model E (which is widely assumed to be the case due to a trademark request for “Model E” filed last year), Tesla’s three models would then spell out S-E-X.

However, even beyond that, I also found out about a week ago that Tesla already has the trademark for “Model Y.” So, the “only logical conclusion” here is that Tesla is looking to develop a “SEXY” brand, right? (But who didn’t already know that?)

For some background, here are some stories on the Model X:

And here are some stories on the Model E:

And I’ll open up comments on what the Model Y would be.

Of course, you know what they say about assumptions, but wouldn’t that just play into the story further?… I think I’ll shut my mouth now.
