Tesla motors finally gets a Tesla.com

An ode to Elon Musk, Nikola Tesla and some guy named Stu Grossman.

Mr. Grossman an engineer in Silicon Valley owned, until this week, the domain name Tesla.com.

His lawyer said he was a fan of Nikola Tesla, the guy who helped lay the foundation for the modern alternating current electrical system.

Mr. Musk, as you may know, runs a company that is in some way also a tribute to Nikola Tesla, Tesla Motors which until today was stuck with Teslamotors.com.

The two have apparently reached an agreement, terms not disclosed, which gives Musk more online leeway as he expands the company beyond just cars and battery storage.
