    I do not think that this is accurate (tesla says that its car will be derived from the new BMW 5 series sedan).

    No, they said it will compete witih the BMW 5 series, not be derived from it.

    Tesla's spokemen have already cleared up that rumor, the White Star won't be based on a Ford platform or any other existing platform. It's being designed from the ground up as an electric car. (They noted that the Roadster actually has a few parts sourced from the Ford parts bin, though.)
