Sort of similar to the Apple car rumor
Tesla would make money right away if they stopped buying small key industry companies like Grohmann automation, Maxwell and Hibar, stopped building new factories, invest way less in research, and so on.
Steady production for the next 5 years with great profits. Maybe they might grow a little year over year.

I'm glad they keep doing what they are doing now though.

Google would not buy Tesla to get an automotive company but to make use of its innovative force. They'd likely make Tesla expand at an accelerated rate, bearing losses for a couple of years.
