Massachusetts Court Sides With Tesla in MSADA Lawsuit
As CEO and co-founder of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk is known as a pioneer in the development of the all-electric car.
With Tesla's court victory in Norfolk Superior Court last week, Musk could become known as a pioneer of another revolutionary concept in the auto industry: the straight-to-consumer sales model.
Auto manufacturers have long had a system of selling their cars through third-party franchisees. But Palo Alto, Calif.-based Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) has a different approach, preferring to open its own showrooms, Apple-style, and bypass the middlemen. (The Tesla stores are different than typical car showrooms, in that you can't just drive the car you want off the lot, but you do interact with a screen that lets you design your own Tesla Model S sedan.)
