Tesla will get broken up by antitrust laws if things continue on their current trajectory. Falcon9 are you a Tesla automobile owner, employee of Tesla/SpaceX or stockholder?

I wasn't aware that vertical integration was forbidden under the antitrust laws...

A week ago, while in Austin, I visited the Tesla show room there. That was the first time I actually have sat in a Tesla. This was a red P85+. The carbon fiber dash looked a lot better than the wood look in the pictures I have seen before. It really is a nice car. Very well designed, not perfect, but overall a great car. The price was $115000, so not cheap. But I'm impressed. I can understand why this car is such a success. Don't think I will buy one right now, but if I needed to replace my Karma, I might consider one.

Well, that's probably why apple is in talk with Tesla to buy them out.....
Those were conversations from a year ago when TSLA was much lower - at $35B EV, very different proposition.

If Steve Job was alive, he may had looked into Fisker deal. He was a guy who appreciated a good design and look....
Jobs was also a perfectionist...

From a Seeking Alpha article:

Elon Musk's goals are far loftier than becoming the next General Motors. As I said back then, Musk seeks instead for his company to become the next Exxon Mobil, which has a market cap over 7 times that of GM. The idea is that Musk's companies become vertically integrated in an all electric economy just like the oil majors have in hydrocarbons. The supercharger network was the first step in that direction. The giga-factory that Tesla is financing with these bonds is the next one. The key though, will be Tesla eventually supplying (or licensing) charging solutions and battery packs to other car companies.
