The rumor mill refuses to give up on the idea that Apple is building an electric car. "Project Titan" has been humming along for quite some, and it appears Apple is not ready to give up on those same aspirations, either. Indeed, the company has recently landed a pretty big hire to help make it a reality one day.
Apple has a lot of different projects in the work at any given time, which the company tries very hard to keep secret until it deems it's the right time to share. One such project is supposedly "Project Titan", with the teams reportedly working on Apple's first automobile.
Apple is reportedly working on yet another factor to help build its oft-rumored Apple Car, with the latest report suggesting the company's in active talks to secure more parts.
According to a pair of fresh reports, Nissan is no longer discussing a potential manufacturing tie-up with Apple regarding Project Titan, the iPhone maker's autonomous car project.
Apple is not likely going to let another company run the show when it comes to one of its own products, even its first automobile. However, it does need the help of some other company out there to help manufacture the thing. So, in light of that, and other recent reports, there's a new story out today that aims to shed some light on potential candidates.
Things have been moving along at a nice clip when it comes to rumors regarding the Apple Car. And it was certainly starting to look like Apple may have landed a deal with either Hyundai or Kia to help it along further. But it turns out that might not be the case after all.
If the rumors are true and Apple plans on debuting its first automobile in just five years, the company has to move things along. That's probably why, at least in part, there are so many reports of Apple's plans and development swirling around now. Like how the company's now investing money to help secure manufacturing.
The rumor mill refuses to give up on the idea of an Apple-branded vehicle. Then again, when news breaks of a major new hire that will help that vision along, maybe it makes sense why the rumors won't fade out.
Word on the street is that Apple is trying to team up with an automobile company, one that's already entrenched in the market, to help build its oft-rumored Apple Car. One such company appears to be Hyundai, but a new report suggests at least one executive isn't too keen on the idea.
It's certainly starting to feel like the Apple Car is a real thing the company isn't just toying around with, but rather a project that will become the real deal before too long. Today we have yet another rumor pointing to its seemingly inevitable arrival.
Things are certainly starting to heat up in regards to the oft-rumored, and yet still unofficial Apple Car. The news cycle won't give up on Project Titan, and it certainly sounds like an Apple-branded car is on the way.
One of the long-standing rumors floating around Apple is the company's efforts to build an automobile. "Project Titan" as it's known, the Apple Car has been in the works for some time. However, we may be many years away before we see it actually launch.
