Talk about a potential Apple Car continues apace. One of the key questions is who will be the partner that actually makes the vehicle – Hyundai and Kia said recently that talks with them are not happening. Bloomberg News has a good rundown of the potential candidates.

The secret project has gained momentum in recent months, adding multiple former Tesla Inc. executives, gaining the supervision of Apple’s top artificial intelligence executive and ramping up road tests. The initiative, known as Project Titan inside Apple, is attracting intense interest because of its potential to upend the automotive industry and supply chains, much like the iPhone did to the smartphone market. If and when Apple commits to building a car, it is likely to seek multiple partners — including a major one to assemble the vehicle and many others to supply key components.

    HA HA HAAAA!!! 3 years later and fools still believe Apple will make a car. Apple can’t even engineer toy phones that don’t need bug fixes weekly or how about a simple hinge on a flaptop? What makes anyone think after years of fake news incl latest with Hyundai and Kia (as if they would EVER make a car for a possible competitor) that Apple could make a bike let alone a car? Any evidence besides hirings and quittings on the Titan team? “you so funny”. They are too late for anything but total autonomous and there is nobody close to Tesla’s machine learning and Dojo so just stop the nonsense. Titan is DOA kids.
    Last week the date for a car was 3 years – so funny – my bet stands – I’ll wager any amount that there will NOT be an Apple car – not in 3 years – not in 5 years probably NEVER. Any takers? It’s already been a few years since their BS started – what are they waiting for??? Tesla built a Gigafactory ground up in ONE YEAR. Ha HAAAA !!!! ⏚

    “Hyundai and Kia said recently that talks with them are not happening.”

    Until an agreement is reached with a builder I would think that there are non disclosure agreements in place that prevent them from discussing the matter.
