    Leading up to what may be a short-lived hiccup for the high-flying company and its brilliant and enigmatic founder Elon Musk, few automakers have garnered the kind of praise that Tesla has. Consumer Reports, the bane of consumer product marketers everywhere, gave the automaker its highest rating in the organization’s history. It wrote in July:

    “Slipping behind the wheel of the Tesla Model S is like crossing into a promising zero-emissions future. This electric luxury sports car, built by a small automaker based in Palo Alto, Calif., is brimming with innovation, delivers world-class performance, and is interwoven throughout with impressive attention todetail. It’s what Marty McFly might have brought back in place of his DeLorean in  “Back to the Future.” The sum total of that effort has earned the Model S the highest score in our Ratings: 99 out of  100.”

    A month later, the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA), gave the Tesla Model S its highest safety rating…ever. Clarence Ditlow, director of the Center for Auto Safety, an independent advocacy organization, noted:

    “Tesla has thrown down the challenge to the industry as a whole. We are a new company and we beat everybody,” Ditlow said. “All the other automakers need to accept Tesla’s challenge and do as well or better as Tesla in NHTSA’s crash test ratings.”

    Between Consumer Reports and NHTSA, what more could an automaker want? How about theseheadlines?
