What’s this Google driverless car doing at Tesla’s Fremont plant?

If I’m not mistaken, that’s a Google driverless car parked out in front of Tesla’s Fremont Factory.

Sure, you’d like to think that Tesla was going to adopt Google’s driverless car technology and pop it in their cars but the reality is that Tesla is going to build its own “Auto-pilot”. Plus, if the tech was being demoed, it would probably be done at their design offices or an unmarked location rather than the place where cars are assembled.

That said, Elon Musk and Google CEO Larry Page speak highly of one another and are considered friends.

More likely Google is just mapping the area or perhaps at best preparing to give us a Streetview tour of the plant.
