Stories of the Apple car project began back in 2015 , it was stated that it was suspended by Steve Jobs himself because he wanted to focus on the development of the iPhone. Over the past year and a half, it became more known to the public that Apple is working on a car under the name “Project Titan Moniker. The Apple electric car project (codename “Titan”) is an electric car project undergoing research and development by Apple Inc.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk stated in the report that it is not a “secret “Apple is building an electric car, At a point it was a false alarm that Apple was interested in purchasing Tesla, but the report was never stated or confirmed. Musk’s started an intense war between Apple and Tesla, with both companies poaching employees from the other. Musk therefore referred to Apple as the “Tesla graveyard”. In addition, Apple has also hired employee and executives from Fiat Mercedes, Ford, and more. The management of Mercedes –Benz doesn’t seem too worried about Apple car plans because they don’t see them a threat.
Apple is believed to be operating project Titan under a shell company called Sixty-Eight Research in Silicon Valley California, Apple has purchased a lot of real estate properties in the area, much of which fits the bill for building a car. Apple was aiming to introduce its own car by 2020, but a more recent report claims that the launch date has been pushed into 2021. The date could have been affected due to the departure of “Steve Zadesky”, a former Ford engineer a former Ford engineer as project in-charge who was leading the project.
Over the last weeks, a handful of reports have indicated that Apple would be teaming up with Hyundai for the production of Apple car but due to the fact that many other automobiles are not interested they became nervous and unsure about their participation in teaming up with Apple, they are still negotiating and are yet to finalize. Apple is said to be in talks with at least six car makers, Apple is looking forward to produce 100,000 cars starting in 2024. Also new graphics designers have created a sharp apple car concept that imagines what it will look like with a large 15-inch center console screen like Tesla uses with its model 13.
