2013 Tesla Model S: Would You Sign the Petition?

July 3, 2013

2013 Tesla Model S

Tesla Motors wants the ability to sell cars directly to consumers in all U.S. states without a dealer network.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that an "anonymous Tesla enthusiast" started a petition to put before President Obama. The petition has passed the required 100,000-signature threshold to merit a response from the White House.

States laws vary on the subject but, to simplify a complicated subject, franchise dealers are protected by state laws that prohibit manufacturers from selling and servicing automobiles directly.

What do you think should happen? Would you sign the petition ?
