Would Apple Really Buy Tesla?

/ 4 years ago


Internet entrepreneur and angel investor Jason Calacanis suggests that Apple may be preparing to go on its biggest ever shopping trip. The company is not typically known for flashy purchases, with the recent Beats purchase being quite a surprise to many, but their next one could blow all of that right out of the water.

Jason thinks that Apple will make its move within the next 18 months, a move that would set Apple back a staggering $75 billion. While he admits he doesn’t have any insider information, his prediction of Apple buying Tesla does make a lot of sense and it’s not like Apple can’t afford it.

While Apple are said to be developing cars of their own, the companies do have a lot in common, no doubt why their respective staff tend to jump from one to the other so often.

“No one else in the world could actually make a run at Tesla, because they either don’t have the cash and, most importantly, they don’t have the ability to give assurances to Elon that they won’t f— it up,” he writes. “Apple’s design team, software, and global distribution would actually LEVEL Tesla up.”

The only questions is, would Elon be willing to sell up shop? It would certainly help him pay for his new spaceships.

    DON’T DO IT.
    Apple WILL f*** it up, you can bet your ass on that.

    One of my goals is to own a Telsa car before I hit 50 years old… if Apples buys them, that’s one lost customer.
