Presumably, one could order the LEAF using a dealer near the "clone", and then do not close the deal on the LEAF after it arrives at that dealer, creating an "orphan".
Question is, can (and will) that dealer sell the orphan to the "clone", and for how much?
Presumably the dealer could have an "open" order from the "clone", at a specific price.
But, will the dealer get control of the "orphan" LEAF, or will Nissan re-assign it elsewhere?
