Tesla Store in Texas

Tesla wants to open stores in Texas. That may not sound like a bold idea, but state law forbids automakers from selling cars directly to consumers in stores. The law was designed to prevent big automakers from undercutting dealers and driving them out of business. Musk wants to change that, while auto dealers are fighting to keep things the way they are. Tesla has showrooms in Texas, but it can't sell cars through them or offer test drives.
