Elon said that they had trademarked Model E and Model Y, in addition to the existing Model S and Model X.

Hadn't heard about model Y?
I happen to be a TM lawyer and so I checked and yeah he did file applications for MODEL Y in August. So I guess he's "bringing SEXY back." (Sorry I couldn't resist). ;)
The model Y may be a SUV version of the model E.
@eking - Just to clarify:
TM = Trademark
TM = Tesla Motors
Clever. Means you'll have to buy 4 TM cars to qualify. ;p
Oh sorry. I mean "trademark" as in "trademark lawyer". Tesla Motors filed for trademark protection under "intent to use" for the mark MODEL Y in late August. So it appears to be in development.
Where does the Roadster fit into this SEXY scheme?
It doesn't. The back seats are too small.
BrianH, that was just too funny! Plenty room in the Roadster even without back seats ;)
The new roadster (model R) will fit in with the model U, as in; R U S E X Y enough to own a Tesla?
Or U R S E X Y be cause you own a Tesla!
Go search for Bamboo8's thread with his saga regarding with the makeup on the headliner...
Unexpensive? Have at that one if you want Brian. ;-)
I like Ultra! The Tesla Ultra! Or Ultimate that would work. Unlimited. Either way the super car! Something to embarrass the Veryon.
The Veryon is veryoff the beaten path, not a commercial product.
They went for model Y because Ford put up a fight about model E being trademarked by them :(
Suposedly Elon himself said that "Ford killed sex."
