Apple and Tesla: Is the Idea That Crazy?

While Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) has been languishing with a struggling stock and investors gripped with growing concerns, Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA  ) continues to perform.

It seems unlikely that Apple will dive into such a new market, or that Tesla would necessarily welcome the offer, but the idea is not completely without merit.

In the video below, Fool.com contributor Doug Ehrman discusses what such an acquisition would do for Apple and why Wilcox may be onto something interesting.
