Tesla to buy BMW

Tesla to buy BMW

Just kidding, but seriously, the Europeans are setting limits on fleet carbon emissions. That would drastically increase the value of tesla's electric vehicles in Europe. Government regulation could significantly help tesla.

Ever heard of a reverse takeover? Small firm uses large firm's net worth/assets to secure a loan which buys majority control.

Yeah tesla would have to leverage up BMW's balance sheet, which doesn't seem like a good idea for a company in an economically cyclic business. But maybe ICE manufacturing has no value given pending regulation on carbon emissions of European vehicles.

Laughable, actually. Carbon controls courtesy of King Canute's cockamamie courtier class. A Bridge Too Far, I think.
