    • There's some anxiety with investors over Tata Motors (TTM -6.7%) and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAU -5.7%) after the Volkswagen emissions scandal.
    • Though neither company is accused of using "defeat devices" like VW to beat emissions testing, calls have increased in Europe for a broader probe into the industry.
    • Daimler (OTCPK:DDAIF) and BMW (OTCPK:BAMXY) fell 7.1% and 5.5%, respectively, in European trading.
    • Ford (F -3.6%), Toyota (TM -2.6%), Honda (HMC -2.5%), and General Motors (GM -2.5%) are also lower than broad market averages with global growth concerns adding significantly to the regulatory firestorm.

    • News in the automobile industry this week continues to indicate seismic changes are coming.
    • The Silicon Valley factor: A deeper commitment by Apple and Google in the automobile sector is widely anticipated, although an all-in bet on the manufacturing side is still considered a reach. Key acquisitions, partnerships, or joint ventures in software, self-driving technology, and infotainment systems could sort out the winners from the losers. German players BMW (OTCPK:BAMXY) and Mercedes-Benz (OTCPK:DDAIF) could be in the mix.
    • The Sergio factor: Though the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (NYSE:FCAU) CEO continues to make some bold projections on the powerful merger synergies a tie-up with General Motors (NYSE:GM) would create, his math works for other combinations within the industry as well. Nissan (OTCPK:NSANY), Tata Motors (NYSE:TTM), Honda (NYSE:HMC), and Volvo (OTCPK:GELYF) are each struggling in various markets.
    • The Tesla factor: Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) has engaged in a war of words with Toyota (NYSE:TM) in the electric vs. hydrogen debate. The EV automaker is also in a race with General Motors and Nissan over developing a mass-market EV with the driving range and sticker price to sell at scale. There's also been a tug-of-war over employees with Silicon Valley counterpart Apple. With so many enemies, some analysts think Tesla needs more friends in the space. Who has the ~$40B-$50B to buy out Elon or the moxie to strike a strategic partnership?
    • Looking for a wildcard? Sony (NYSE:SNE) CEO Kazuo Hirai told the Financial Times this week that his company would absolutely partner with an automobile company if a deal makes sense.

    • Jaguar Land Rover (NYSE:TTM) won't develop a true self-driving car, according to R&D chief Wolfgang Epple.
    • Epple says delivering human cargo from point A to point B isn't a goal of the luxury brand.
    • The stance from JLR is different than the vision of Mercedes-Benz (OTCPK:DDAIF) CEO Dieter Zetsche who sees autonomous cars becoming "exclusive cocoons" on wheels driven by digital chauffeurs.
    • The fine line between the self-driving concept and cars with advanced autonomous features pivots on decision-making.
