Tesla’s Newest Car Crashes Consumer Reports’ Rating System

Tesla’s Model S P85D sedan just broke the record for the best car ever, according to Consumer Reports. It scored 103 out of 100 possible points.

It’s the latest tech company to ‘come clean’ about its remarkable hiring practices when it comes to women and ethnic minorities. But even with its bold leadership goals for next year, some analysts say the metrics aren’t the answer. The corporate structure that gets those numbers is what needs to change.
