Although it’s not a topic you would speak of in a regular basis, cars and car names are definitely a cool topic to talk about. A car name is an inherent part of a vehicle. In some instances it can be so important that it can either boost or decrease its sales. For example, the Mazda LaPuta wasn’t well received by the Spanish speaking community. After all, LaPuta is a woman without reputation in that language. Let’s go now to the list of the coolest car names ever:

10 Cool Car Names You Would Love

1. Dodge Swinger

Dodge Swinger

It was the year 1969 just when the hippie movement was at its peak when Dodge decided to launch its Dodge Swinger model. While conservative people protested due to its explicit name, those living a more prejudice-free lifestyle embraced it. The car itself isn’t that attractive, however, it’s name will surely make people open their eyes in surprise mode more than once.

2. Jensen Interceptor

Jensen Interceptor

If you have ever lived through a war, you know that Interceptor can be the best and most heroic car name available. Hand-built and featuring V8 engines, the Jensen Interceptor is cooler than cool. On top of that, it also bears the name Jensen, a former F1 champion and competitor.

3. Triumph Spitfire

Triumph Spitfire

Triumph? Spitfire? Triumph company nailed it with this fantastic name. The vehicle in itself is eye-catching, especially the red version with a black stripe in the middle. Initially, this car was to be named “bomb” (which is also an unusual name in itself). Fortunately, Triumph finally named it spitfire – which is thought to have been taken from a fighter aircraft.

4. Porshe Carrera

Porshe CarreraThis car (porshe carrera) is one of the most epic car ever built. There are many versions available all of them being nothing less than impressive. It’s name is extremely accurate as it matches completely the car’s features. Carrera means race in Spanish language . For your information, the Porshe Carrera GT (the added GT makes the name even cooler) can reach a speed of 330 km/hour. In fact, it was the fastest car in 2005. Both due to its name and design, the Porshe Carrera will always be in the mind and heart of car lovers.

5. Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti Veyron 1

If it’s in Italian you can almost always swear that the name will be cool. In this case, both the car and brand’s name sound like subtle music to the ear. The Bugatti Veyron was taken from the name of a prominent person – Pierre Veyron, a racer who won the 24 Hours de Le Mans (an endurance race that lasts 24 hours!)

6. Lancia Stratos

Lancia Stratos

In this case we don’t know which one is cooler – if the car or its name. Stratos is a Greek city also meaning “army”. The Lancia Stratos doesn’t look like it is Greek nor like it would be something used in the army. Rather, you could say it looks like the most appropriate vehicle to travel in Mars.

7. Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

We couldn’t leave the Corvette out of this list. In fact, with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray we have a model with two super-cool names. Corvette is now synonymous to speed and a stylish design. Stingray, well’ it’s sting-ray. This car name is so cool that you can even shorten the name as “Vette” rather than “Corvette” without losing its charm.

8. Dodge Viper


We can’t have a cool car name without having a cool sports car (in most cases). The Dodge Viper was first to be named Copperhead. Thanks to Dodge’s branding staff they made up their minds before it was too late. Viper is a type of venomous snake.

9. Ferrari Testarossa

Ferrari Testarossa

The Ferrari Testarossa became one of the most, if not the most famous cars soon after its launching. It wasn’t only a Ferrari, but also its Testarossa name was so catchy and simply amazing that people would buy posters of it to have in their rooms. Testarossa signifies ‘red head’ in Italian. Although the full body of the car is red, we won’t complain about its name.

Last But Not The least On 10 Cool Car Names You Would Love

10. Ford Mustang

Salon de l'auto de Genève 2014 - 20140305 - Ford

This is one of the cars that has grown more and more popular as the years pass by. It is thought that the Ford Mustang had its name taken from a fighter aircraft (just like the Triump Spitfire). Along with its name, the Ford Mustang’s logo (a running horse) is another cool feature that can’t be overlooked.
