If you thought Apple wouldn’t make anything larger than something you would be able to carry, think again. Rumour has it that Apple’s working on a, wait for it because it's going to make you go batshit crazy.... car.
Mac Observer co-founder, Bryan Chaffin, has claimed that he is “certain” Apple’s working on an iCar (that’s what we’re going to call it for now), according to his unnamed sources.
Apparently, the company’s working behind closed doors on something in “vehicle development” that’s also been said to give Tesla “a run for its money”. So we’re assuming it’s something that goes beyond just wow-ing people.
He also reported that Apple’s been poaching people from Tesla, especially those who have had experience in working with cars.
“When I asked one of my sources flat out to put a percentage chance on Apple working on an actual car—rather than some kind of car-related technology—I was told, 80 per cent,” according to a quote on Business Insider.
But Chaffin added that he thinks the idea isn’t as far-fetched – he claims the percentage of an iCar in the works is closer to 100 per cent. Even though the idea might seem uncanny to us, there's been previous mention of the late Steve Jobs’ desire to build an iCar.
Obviously, this is something that we won’t be seeing in the coming months. Apple Watch itself is a prime example - so many years of rumours, and when it's finally unveiled, its mass-rollout is expected months after. So, if the iCar is actually happening, we think it would take a few years to complete.
