The product testing agency gave the car a rating of 100 -- a perfect score -- calling it "the best performing car that Consumer Reports has ever tested."

The head of automotive testing confirmed that the all-electric all-wheel-drive P85D initially scored 103 points and the team had to change their scoring model to make it fit into their normal scale. 

The review comes just two years after the base model scored a 99 out of 100 points. At the time, that was the highest rating ever for a vehicle.

Reviewers applauded the Tesla for being extremely efficient, extremely fast and extremely comfortable.
