From what Jack over at EVTV is saying, Elon has a kind of 'preferred' status in China. The Tesla Model S and the Tesla Model X are status symbols for those who have 'made it' ... and the Chinese government has exempted TESLA from having a chinese partner for production.

I'm sure that Elon could raise another few Billion $$$ with a couple more tweets ...

There is likely a bit of bias in Jack's report, but I can't find any holes in the facts as reported.
In THEORY there is no difference between Theory and Practice
