This is a hypothetical question and I am interested in what the response will be from current owners have if this was to happen. We all know tesla is building the massive gigafactory which is burning a lot of tesla's cash. We all know building a car is expensive and servicing and maintaining them is difficult. i.e. providing warranty and logistics and such. So it's logical battery, once the factory is up and running, will be a much easier and lucrative business compared to car manufacturing, especially when all the car companies will be releasing much better EV by the time the Model 3 comes out. I am not forecasting any downside for tesla, but I think there is a real chance Tesla might get out of the car business down the road and just focus on battery similar to coda, but a much grander scale. So what are your takes current tesla owners if one and only one of the following 3 situations happens: 1) Tesla shuts down their car business and just focus on making and selling batteries to other car manufacture and electric power company. 2) Tesla sells their car division to Audi, BMW, Mercedes, or some other car manufacture and let them run the show from there. 3) Tesla sells their car division to Google, Apple, Uber, etc and let them run the show from there. Here is my take on this: 1) Owners will be in a similar situation as Fisker and other defunct cars. They will hope their tesla have no major problems and probably will baby the car until it dies. This is probably the worst case. Supercharging station will be sold to other competitors or shutdown all together. So the cars are really worthless because of the lack of support similar to android cellphone/tablet with out of business parent companies. 2) The new owners will implement many changes but will probably still provide support for the current owners. Some obvious changes would be charging money for supercharging and probably implement dealership sales and servicing... Maybe... Or they can just take the tech and reimplement it in their own cars and shut down tesla's version. 3) Google or Apple will probably just shutdown the car business slowly and think about how to redesign tesla to fit their needs which is probably driverless cars. They would use tesla's technology so they don't have to reengineer the drive train, battery, electronics, and such. They might keep some of the current perks for model S owners but support will probably go away over time. Sorry for all the doom and gloom, but sometime it's fun to think of the worst case and predict what the outcome will be. That being said, I am very hopeful tesla will continue to build great products down the road... provided they do it sustainably.
