Tesla Finally Acquired The Domain

You have to wonder how Elon Musk, after waiting a decade to get the Tesla domain, finally got it from the guy that owned it for almost 25 years. Money? Legal maneuvers? Forgot to reregister? Death?

If you want to find the websites for Ford, Chevy, or Dodge, you just add a ".com" to the name. But not so for Tesla, which had long been unable to acquire the user-friendly domain name. That’s finally changed, though no one is saying how. Tesla Motors acquired the domain from the Silicon Valley engineer who had owned it for 24 years, but had let it sit unused for much of that time.
