California Officiates a Second Shotgun Wedding for Toyota – First with GM, Now with Tesla

Sometimes, even shotgun weddings have to end. Like the GM NUMMI deal that got hammered out during the era of “Voluntary” Export Restraints back in the 1980′s. Well, that money-losing fiasco ended last year (along with GM) so we’re on to a new marrriage. This time, Toyota is hooking up with Tesla Motors.

Why? Well, one reason must have something to do with having the California congressional delegation on Toyota’s side the next time people start acting up. Plus, Toyota is good at building cars and Telsa is good at not building cars, so Tesla needs all the help it can get.  

Tesla and Toyota just got married in California. But how long will the honeymoon last?

(Is there nothing PhotoShop can’t do? Oh, wait a minute, yes there’s something!)

Obviously Tesla, which has broken many promises over the years, didn’t have a prayer of keeping all its new promises without a whole bunch of help. This will be interesting…

Vaya con Gaia, Toyota.
