I hope Tesla ruins the pricing and dealership models. If nothing else comes of it, I consider that a wild success.
People accept a price if they are sure that's the price everyone else is paying. Few products fit this. Even apple phones occasionally go on sale as much as buy one get one free. The computers and tablets they make seem to be more solid on the price. Very few brands just set a price and never do sales, coupons, clearances, etc. Occasionally something is temporarily short of supply for demand and you will be lucky to get it at list price. The 2020 Corvette is going to be that way this year.
