Tesla and Toyota have been rather friendly for the last few years. It seems they're now ready to take the relationship to the next level. What started as a $60 million deal turned into a $100 million affair earlier this year. You know what's cooler than a million dollar deal? A billion dollar deal, and that's reportedly on the table between the two automakers.

Per Tesla CEO Elon Musk, his company is in talks with Toyota to ink a deal that would see $1 billion trading hands. Any issues about capital could quickly disappear, and Tesla could quickly become a major player in the automotive industry thanks to this serious cash infusion.
