A blog post by Jason Calacanis:
Apple will buy Tesla for $75b in 18 months — it’s a lock (in my mind).
Let me start out with three important disclaimers:
- I have no inside information.
- I hold no shares of Tesla or Apple*.
- I do own two Teslas and spend $3k per year on Apple products personally (at least).
OK, now that those disclaimers are out of the way, let me break down what I think will happen in the next 12 months based on what we’ve heard so far about Apple’s interest in electric cars.
For background, there are reports of a massive project at Apple, with hundreds of executives working on an electric minivan. Additionally, an Apple self-driving car has been spotted on the roads.
