Aren't we just trading owners?

This is more of a hypothetical/philosophical question than anything. More after the jump. For your time.

If you eliminate dealerships but introduce factory stores that provide information on authorized repair centers, handle test drives, answer questions, and help facilitate builds and financing coupled with regional warehouses to handle common specs, aren’t they functionally equivalent to dealerships? If you move to that model, have you really eliminated dealerships or just changed owners?
