Audi, GM, Google, Honda, Hyundai and NVIDIA have joined together to form the Open Automotive Alliance (OAA), a global alliance of technology and auto industry leaders committed to bringing the Android platform to cars starting in 2014. The OAA is dedicated to a common platform that will drive innovation, and make technology in the car safer and more intuitive for everyone.

A potentially very lucrative market.

The problem Tesla would face if they joined the alliance is not only would they have to fight the misperception that their cars are more flammable despite the evidence, they'll also have to fight the misperception that their cars are more fragmented despite the evidence.

If Tesla joined that I bet there would be claims that the whole cat is run by Android. I won't be surprised someone mentioning claiming that he crashed into other car because Google Hangouts hung on his Tesla.
