9E1? - that might be consistent with Poraches naming strategy, but since it's a different model, like the 718 is the Boxster/Cayman. Then again the Cayenne, Macan and Panamera don't relly go by numbers either.

Mission E still sounds cool to me, but maybe it's too close to the Tesla Model 3 (they wanted E, but Ford had a model E - copyrighted)

Their ad guys have already spent 100's of hours on deciding a name, along with running it by test groups, etc. I'm doubtful our 2 minutes pondering about it will be anything terribly clever, but who knows.

Then again, maybe call it the Edison, a subtle nod to the feud between Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison.
