    Dear Aspen,

    I just pointed out that Chancellor Merkel has been accused of being too close to the motor manufacturers in the past.

    Given that and the fact that...

    Morning Markets: Negative Trump effect spills over to Asia

    Morning Markets: Negative Trump effect spills over to Asia
    The demise of the Trump trade rally on Wall St on Thursday was felt across Asian markets today, with key bourses losing ground. The Nikkei headed sharply lower, with the high yen eroding confidence in the outlook for Japan's export-driven economy. Meanwhile in neighbouring South Korea, the vice-chairman of Samsung, Lee Jae-Yong, was arrested over bribery allegations; the uncertain future for the heir apparent of the global electronics giant weighed on its share price.

    GM puts Opel on sale – try again, fail better?

    Can Elon Musk live up to investors' wildest dreams? – #SaxoStrats

    Head of Equity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    Tesla shares are up 54% since early December as investors are buying into a rosy future for Tesla betting on the Tesla 3 production to be moved forward. Despite positive news out on Tesla 3 the execution risk is still extremely high and the valuation is completely out of sync with the rest of the car industry which is still the best peer group.

    Self-driving taxis take to the road in Singapore

    The Guardian
    When Uber announced on August 18 that it would let the public hail self-driving taxis in Pittsburgh before the end of the month, some autonomous vehicle experts could not believe it was happening so soon. But Mark Harris writes that in fact the $60bn multinational has just been scooped by Nutonomy, a small MIT spin-out whose electric self-driving cabs have already started picking up real customers in a Singapore business park. Initially, riders will use Nutonomy’s own app to hail a Mitsubishi i-Miev or a Renault Zoe, ramping up to a dozen vehicles in the coming months.

    Tesla's entire future depends on the Gigafactory

    CNBC
    When you find yourself in the middle of the Nevada desert, on a 100-degree day, you wonder: who in the world would build something here? Elon Musk, of course, writes Jordan Golson. Golson is in the city of Sparks, outside of Reno, because of Musk's dream – his "Master Plan" for Tesla. He's staked his entire company (and much of his net worth) on a single, enormous building here: the Gigafactory. Tesla's Gigafactory is perhaps the best example of the literal scale of Elon Musk's ambitions. When the factory is complete, it will be the largest building in the world by footprint and, if all goes to plan, will eventually churn out enough batteries to supply 150 gigawatt hours of batteries a year.

    China will own the internet of cars

    Bloomberg
    A few weeks ago, Apple's Tim Cook was all smiles as he stepped into a sedan operated by Didi Chuxing. Apple had just invested $1 billion in the ridesharing company, and Cook was no doubt feeling satisfied. But he was probably also feeling relief at getting a piece of China's "internet of vehicles" before it was too late. Adam Minter writes that the phrase might be new, but the idea isn't. Car makers and tech companies have long dreamed of building internet-connected cars. And platforms such as Apple's CarPlay and Google's Android Auto are starting to make the concept a reality. But China is where the future of this technology will likely be charted. And in trying to compete there, foreign companies are facing a stark choice: partner up or be left behind.
