The Tesla Motors (TSLA) Model S is the first car to achieve a score as high as 99 out of 100 in detailed testing from Consumer Reports since 2007. The publication bought a car anonymously in January and went through the Tesla experience from start to finish with hardly any hitches while being thoroughly impressed by performance (like a "Porsche") and energy efficiency. TSLA +23.3% premarket as the good news keeps piling in.

    Great execution from Tesla, both in terms of customer service as well its business model.

    The consumers Reports article coming in July will be golden for Tesla.
    And with the annual 7% increase in Lion batteries storage capacityas well as an annual 8% drop in price and other electrical storage technologies just around the corner.......


    If you are in the fossil fuel business ....... be afraid, be very afraid!

    Be afraid of what? Neither Tesla nor Li are going to put anyone oily out of business in your lifetime.

    Sea change can come slowly as Khaz alluded too... but Tesla has been in business for 10 years and now I think the hockey stick of the product lifecycle may be coming into view!!! Go Tesla!
