Tiffany’s Top Ten on Elon’s “D”

With the recent Tweet from Elon Musk on “unveiling the D” (we dearly hope this isn’t a thinly veiled euphemism), along with “something else,” let your imaginations run wild as to what that “something else” is after he unveils his “D”.

Elon Musk’s Tweet

Displayed below are a slew of D-Words that could pertain to this announcement:

10) Disruptor – Elon fancies himself a Disruptor in the tech industry and beyond. We see no reason why he wouldn’t want to immortalize this status in a car.

9) Delivered – Hopefully the announcement of this model doesn’t mean increased Delayed Delivery times for everyone who has put in their Down payment.

8) Diesel – He wouldn’t! Or would he? It would be quite the mind blowing statement if he does.

7) Deimos – Given his obsession with the red planet perhaps he would have named this model after one of Mars’ two moons. It takes Deimos 30.4 hours to make one orbit around Mars. Hmm..maybe this model will charge in 30.4 seconds.

6) D’oh! – Perhaps he is paying homage to his brief guest starring role on long running comedy “The Simpsons

5) Dock – Is this the beginning of car docking for wireless charging?

4) Discount – LOL yeah right. In your Dreams

3) Deranged – There’s a fine line between genius and insanity. In this case it may also be a reduced range vehicle that could bring stock dividends up.

2) Driverless – Maybe, just maybe Elon’s coders and software geeks have a surprise up their sleeve for all of us.

1) DDs – At the end of the day let’s give BEVs a set of double D’s. I hear D batteries are incredibly reliable.

 It's hard to sell Tesla short when Elon's "D" rose to the occasion today. (Every pun intended)

    Car docking sounds like a good guess!

    1. Spec9 says:

      That is a good guess. I’m sure a lot folks with enough money to drop on a Tesla would easily drop a couple thousand on a wireless charging station for their garage so they don’t have to take the 5 seconds to plug in.

  2. Jared says:

    This is hysterical! Nice job!

  3. Jouni Valkonen says:

    Some days ago I learned new English word “Divestment”. This word was in context when some prominent investors such a Rockefeller fund divested their assets from oil industry. Perhaps Elon is saying that people should now Divest their assets from oil industry or else it will be too late!

    I really really hope it will be Tenacious D presenting a cool new feature, like bigger battery or a dual motor drive.

    1. Jouni Valkonen says:

      Indeed, it really does not make sense to produce non-AWD electric cars. The added cost of electric AWD is very low but the added value is very high.

      Even Nissan LEAF would be much better car if it had AWD.

      1. Spec9 says:

        What is the added value?

        1. DirtyNate says:

          Better handling in the snow. I love my leaf 8 months out of the year. Winter months leave much to be desired.

    2. Pete Repete says:

      In which case..

      This is not the greatest car in the world….. This is just a tribute!!!

      1. Blipblop says:

        Haha yes, but honestly, the Tribute itself isn’t that bad at all!

  5. Bob Hodgen says:

    Dragon. It’s the name of Space X’s spacecraft.

  6. Trace says:

    DIRT! The Model X is an SUV and is going off road.

  7. steve martin says:

    Dual Motor

  8. Luke says:

    Great list! Now my curiosity is aroused! Whoops, that wasn’t my curiosity, my bad. Ahem.

  9. Dianne says:

    It’s an AWD. And the something else is probably the pricing announcement for the X.

  10. Phr3d says:

    D-d-dumbfounded – in that all he he needs to do is tweet that he got an extra big booger this morning and the stock goes up – LOL.

  11. zikzak says:

    D, dual motors.
    That’s the most obvious improvement over the Model S.

  12. Steven says:

    D = Dual motor.

  13. Electra Cruiser says:

    D for Demolish the auto dealers association! 🙂

  14. Seth Leitman says:

    Love the post. Just wrote up a story on it!
    I’ll ask their press dept what is up with the D.
