Tesla Disputes NYT Article

Tesla Releases Driving Logs Contradicting NYT's Scathing Review of Model S | Autopia | Wired.com

Ah, the wonders of the "black box" data log.

According to Tesla, Broder was given explicit instructions for his drive: Keep the speed at 55 mph and turn down the climate control. Broder claims to have set the cruise control at 54 mph, and at one point he writes that he “limped along at about 45 miles per hour.” However, the logs released by Tesla show that he drove at speeds ranging from 65 to 81 mph, and kept the interior temperature at 72 degrees, increasing it to 74 degrees at one point.

I can't believe the NYT would make something up just to sell a newspaper.

HAHAHAHA!

Is John Broder a nom de plume for Jayson Blair? A little fabrication never hurt anybody.
