Tesla.com since 1992 has been registered to Stu Grossman a computer network engineer and the site has been “parked by its owner.” Tesla Motors has been operating under the webpage teslamotors.com since 2003.
In November 1992 Mr. Grossman registered tesla.com in a time when the World Wide Web and websites did not really exist. In 2005 Mr. Grossman had to defend the site also from a manufacturer of power conversion systems called Tesla Industries, Inc.
There is not much info on the topic or a price that has been put out in the public but we are still unclear on how the transaction went down. But, this looks to be a win for Tesla!
