What Car Needs A Better Name (And What Should That Be)?

It happens all the time: an automaker unveils an amazing new car, only to give it a name that's totally underwhelming. Take the Tesla Model S P85D, for example.


It's a high-tech, self-driving marvel with all-wheel drive that is fast enough to crush supercars. And what name does it get? The sad, Johan de Nysschen-esque "P85D." Come on, Tesla. Do better.

Your Jalopnik staff talked this over this morning and we collectively decided the car should be called "THE SHOCKER" instead. Preferably with several exclamation marks. Also, it needs more chrome.

That's our question of the day: What car needs a new name, and what name should that be?

Go nuts. Hyperbole is fun.
