Right, it can also reference the Q45, as in Infinity. Or a ship, a police car,
or quattro. So it's can be argued that it is either exclusionary or ambiguous. 

The ship reference Bob brought up is where the Q-ship reference came from, I
assume. Stealth automobiles (with potent abilities) are referred to as Qships
over here (Hence Scott's QSHIPQ Handle, neh?). Across the pond too?
