Atlanta Governor Nathan Deal said Wednesday that he might call a special session of the state legislature to help lure Amazon to Georgia. "Let me assure you that if Georgia makes the list of final three contenders for HQ2, I will call a special session so that we can make whatever statutory changes are required to accommodate a business opportunity of this magnitude," Deal said. Atlanta is one of 238 cities that has bid for Amazon's $5B second headquarters. Deal made the announcement at a George Chamber of Commerce meeting. Atlanta and Austin, Texas lead the list among some industry analysts. — SACRAMENTO BEE

Toyota has revealed a new concept called e-Palette. The rolling vehicle is similar to a food truck, but is customizable to include an array of items, including a rolling restaurant, retail shop and donation-pickups vehicle. “Imagine how great e-Palette would be at Burning Man,” Toyota President Akio Toyoda said at the CES event in Las Vegas this week. The idea is for the vehicle to be all-electric and autonomous. Users can customize the vehicle, which Toyota hopes to offer in three sizes, and release in the early part of the next decade. — MARKET WATCH

Wall Street firm Piper Jaffray said Amazon will continue its record growth in 2018. "Amazon, despite its size and continued strong growth, is arguably still in the early innings of its share gain potential, even in the company's most penetrated market," analyst Michael Olson wrote in a note to clients. The firm surveyed 1,000 internet users and 50 percent of people allocated 10 percent or less of their holiday spending to Amazon, a sign that more growth is possible. "Considering the U.S. is Amazon's most penetrated market, we see this low-to-mid single digit market share as a significant positive," he wrote. — CNBC
