    Apple should buy Tesla, sell off the money-losing parts and keep the old NUMMI plant in Fremont:

    I agree that Apple should buy Tesla at a discount to cover all the debts and expenses. Tim Cook would certainly monetize the charging stations services better. Since Apple is not into final assembly of things they may wish to sell or lease the manufacturing assembly lines to a partner like Foxconn / Hon Hai. But definitely upgrade the console interfaces and add voice recognition, sell the cars profitably and most importantly monetize the charging stations services.

    The problem is they’re ALL money losing parts. They’d have to pay Apple to buy them. Even though Musk insisted Tesla would be profitable by this year, that he's actively courting major investors to take the company private undercuts his credibility somewhat. I think if they cannot find a buyer this year they are out of business and investors know this.
