Christmas Wish Lists, Elon Musk Offers Tesla to Apple

Host Tom Appel and co-hosts Jill Ciminillo and Damon Bell start off the show by discussing  Elon Musk’s recent tweet about his attempt to sell Tesla to Apple three years ago, and the reports of Apple’s current plans to enter the autonomous electric-vehicle market. Instead of a guest this week, we share our automotive Christmas wish lists–vehicles we wish automakers would build (or start building again). Tom has a quiz for Damon and Jill on fake trim-level names, and Damon runs down the latest articles on the Consumer Guide Daily Drive blog, including test-drive reviews of the Chevrolet C8 Corvette Convertible and the BMW X7 M50i.
