Apple reportedly met with Tesla CEO last year, What could that mean?
 
 

Apple's Adrian Perica reportedly met with Tesla CEO Elon Musk last spring in Cupertino, suggesting that the company is interested in buying the electric car maker.


As smartphone and tablets sales decline, giant technology companies like Apple and Google are forced to think out of the box.

Google, for example, has acquired Boston Dynamics, the maker of advanced robots. Apple, on the other hand, could be putting its bet on wearable technology, thanks to rumors of an iWatch in the works.

But according to the San Francisco Chronicle, Apple is dreaming of more than just wearables and Apple TVs. Sources reportedly told the publication that the Cupertino-based company is interested in buying Tesla Motors, the popular manufacturer of electric cars.

A source, who spoke on the condition of  anonymity, said that Apple's Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Chief, Adrian Perica, met with Tesla CEO last spring in Cupertino.

Interestingly, an Apple-Tesla deal was also rumored around the same time. In fact, a German analyst even wrote to Tim Cook, urging the CEO to buy Tesla. But the rumor was eventually denied by Tesla CEO Elon Musk who responded on Twitter saying, "Forgot to say one thing at Tesla annual shareholders meeting: just as my money was the first in, it will be the last out."

Although the meeting suggests that Apple is willing to go beyond just making iPhones and iPads, such a mega-deal has yet to be announced. So it's probably best to take it with a grain of salt in hand.

Both Apple and Tesla declined to comment on the report.

Meanwhile, 9to5Mac noted that the meeting between Perica and Musk could be about Apple's interest in Tesla's upcoming project which is to build the world's largestbattery factory. It also sounds like a wild guess. After all, top people like Perica are always attending meetings with corporate executives from other companies to talk about potential partnerships. In Apple's case, the company could be wooing Tesla to integrate Siri into its electric cars.

 

What are your thoughts about this new rumor? Do you think Elon Musk is interested in selling his company? Drop your comments below.
