Apple may be shopping for car companies, but Tesla shouldn’t be on its list

Last week, rumors circulated that Apple was investigating an investment in or an acquisition of British supercar maker and Formula 1 powerhouse McLaren.

McLaren said that the reporting was off the mark, but it’s obvious to anyone paying attention that something is going on with Apple and its interest in transportation.

Earlier this year, the Cupertino colossus invested $1 billion of its $200-plus-billion cash hoard in Didi Chuxing, a Chinese ride-hailing service.
