Earlier this week part of our team including editorial director Marty Padgett, social media manager Joel Feder, and senior editor John Voelcker gathered together virtually via a Google+ Hangout on Air to discuss Tesla, the electric car company's Model S sedan, and the controversial review of the car on The New York Times.
Also under discussion was the outlook for the future of Tesla Motors [NSDQ:TSLA].
The discussion began by recapping the review of the Tesla Model S by the influential newspaper. The review ended with the Model S allegedly having a dead battery and being towed on a flat-bed truck. Tesla wasn't pleased with the review and quickly released discrepancies with it using the car's data logs.
The team moved on to discuss how this situation might have an effect on the rest of the automotive reviewing world going forward.
