Tesla's CEO didn't reveal anything about the car other that it will come in few years, but what's interesting here is the name of the car.

Tesla first introduced the Model S, followed by Model X, and the latest Model 3, which was, according to Musk, was supposed to be named Model E.

"Model 3 was going to be called Model E, for obvious dumb humor reasons, but Ford sued to block it, so now it is S3X. Totally different :)", said Musk.

With the Model Y, Tesla's lineup would spell out "S3XY".

Musk recently started an infrastructure and tunneling company named Boring company, and SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft is named after the 1963 song "Puff, the Magic Dragon" by Peter, Paul, and Mary, reportedly as a response to critics who considered his spaceflight projects impossible.
