Tesla's Musk slams N.Y. Times review Tesla's all-electric luxury sedan, the Model S, makes most auto reviewers gush like smitten teens. [...] when the New York Times this weekend ran an extremely harsh review of the car's performance in cold weather - complete with a photo of the car getting towed - Musk didn't take it lightly. In a spat that played out via Twitter and TV, Musk on Monday called the review "fake" and accused the author, John M. Broder, of writing a hit piece. Broder, Musk said, had left out key details that would have helped explain why the car's massive battery pack ran out of juice during a test drive up the East Coast. The company, based in Palo Alto, made fewer cars than expected last year, in part because Tesla executives were afraid quality could slip if they revved production too quickly. The company is in the process of building a nationwide network of charging stations that can add enough power in 30 minutes to travel 150 miles.
