    Good one! Yes, this NYT article has probably given Tesla about $5Million in free advertising. I would be interested to see how much reservations increase in the next 30-60 days. Also, Consumer Reports should be coming out with their analysis of the Model S in one of their upcoming issues, so the timing was probably perfect for the NYT article.
