Tesla + Volkswagen — Budding Bromance or Fickle Frenemies?

A few years back, Volkswagen was rumored to be in the running to acquire Tesla. It never happened. But Tesla CEO Elon Musk and VW CEO Herbert Diess seemed quite friendly when Tesla won an AUTO BILD award in Germany last year. Around that time, Musk tweeted, “Herbert Diess is doing more than any big carmaker to go electric. The good of the world should come first. For what it’s worth, he has my support.”
