Could Apple be interested in buying Tesla Motors? It’s an intriguing possibility. It could certainly give Cupertino that elusive Big New Thing. German stock analyst Andaan Ahmad of the Berenberg investment bank has called on Tim Cook to add Tesla to his ever-lengthening shopping list.
Ahmad believe Tesla will be one of the great car manufactuers of the century and Apple could benefit enormously from being in the driving seat. Apparently, though, the field isn’t without competition. Mountain View has also been making Googoo eyes at the electric car manufacturer.
For Apple, this heavenly match could make a lot of sense. And with its current £20bn valuation, Tesla would be a small-change transaction for the Big A.
