What Car Does Jesse Pinkman Drive?

December 4, 2023

If you are a fan of Breaking Bad, then you have most likely heard of the character Jesse Pinkman. He drives a number of different cars throughout the show. The car that he drives the most is a 1983 Toyota Tercel 4WD Wagon. The car has been used in several scenes throughout the series and is up for sale now. This article will discuss what car does jesse pinkman drive and why it is so special to the fans of breaking bad.

Jesse Pinkman is a man on the run. He was held captive (and forced into meth-cooking slave labor) by a gang of white supremacists and eventually regains his freedom. Heisenberg helps him wrest control away from his captors and Jesse takes off on his way to Alaska in the ’78 Chevrolet El Camino with the custom plate “THE CAPN.”

The car shows the character as someone who wants to keep it under wraps and not be noticed. This car is perfect for the job since it is a small, nondescript vehicle. In later seasons, he switches to the more traditional Toyota Land Cruiser when he is smuggled to Alaska by a mysterious 'Disappearer' and his new identity as Brock Turner.

Jesse is a guy who likes to have fun. He loves to go fast and a muscle car would be the perfect choice. However, he also has a family to think about and knows that a fast car isn't practical for their lifestyle.
