    Next Tesla - the Lucid Air? Does it make any sense for Tesla to purchase Lucid?

    With the news that Lucid is either seeking a buyout or has been approached - would it make sense for Tesla to purchase them and build the Air itself, saving on development costs for an ultraluxury sedan? Or does that make zero sense whatsoever?

    Lucid Air Tested at 235MPH

    This is going to be awesome if/when it hits the market... It'll be nice to see some competition for the Model S. Curious how they're going to handle charging infrastructure, though.
