Could happen if the rumor phoned into Josh from Joshcar.com holds true. In short Daimler Benz is buying 10% of Bay Area based Tesla Motors. This will provide them with the operating capital needed to start up production of their all electric Tesla S sports sedan. The rumored location of this production will be the old GM Van Nuys plant shuttered some 20 years ago when Camaro production was shifted elsewhere.
I have found confirmation regarding the purchase of Tesla stock over at Edmonds.com.
