The Tesla Model S has received a rare near-perfect score in the annual customer satisfaction survey run by Consumer Reports magazine.

"Owners of the Tesla Model S gave it the highest owner-satisfaction score Consumer Reports has seen in years: 99 out of 100," the magazine said.

After the Model S, the Porsche Boxster got second place with a score of 95. The Porsche 911 and Chevrolet Volt both received 91.

The survey, which draws from 350,000 responses from subscribers who bought the car in the last few years, will be published in the January issue.
