Tesla Model S Named Automobile Magazine’s 2013 ‘Car of the Year,’ Car Dealers Not Amused

It’s Electric! The gasoline-free Tesla Model S “epitomizes efficiency, embodying the grace and performance of a world-class athlete,” says lead designer Franz von Holzhausen.

Upstart automaker Tesla has been busy earning its share of cheers and jeers. Autombile Magazine has selected the Tesla Model S as its 2013 Automobile of the Year (the third-generation Porsche Boxster earned Design of the Year honors). “We weren’t expecting much from the Tesla other than some interesting dinner conversation as we considered ‘real’ Automobile of the Year candidates, but in fact, the Tesla blew them all away,” writes associate editor David Zenlea in an article that will appear in the January 2013 issue. How? The car’s pure electric powertrain, long driving range, and performance, with a “crazy speed [that] builds silently and then pulls the edges of your face back,” according to Automobile editor-in-chief Jean Jennings.
