Elon Musk Offered Tesla For Sale To Apple In 2017 For 1/10th Of Its Current Price But Tim Cook Refused Meeting
It was almost 24 hours ago when Morgan Stanley was found talking about how the Apple Car could be a “far more formidable competition than the established OEMs” to Tesla. But here’s a twist; Elon Musk offered to sell Tesla to Apple, and Tim Cook refused the meeting.
In a market that is easily dominated by Tesla, the Apple Car carries the burden of great expectations.
It’s no secret that the Model 3 debacle was looking to bring Tesla down to its knees, but the fact that the company was being offered at 1/10th of it current value to Apple, is a stunner, if not the fact that Tim Cook never even considered a meeting.
It could be that back then Apple might have been shaky with the project, but as mentioned earlier, a reported breakthrough in battery tech recently, might have put the project back on track.
