“The latest out of the rumor mill is that Apple has established a secret lab in Berlin and hired top staff from Germany’s auto industry to help develop a car, whose code name has previously been reported to be Project Titan.
Frankfurter Allgemeine, citing an anonymous source, reports that around 15 to 20 staff with backgrounds in engineering, software, hardware and sales have already been recruited to work at the lab. One of their main tasks is said to be determining how Apple could go about manufacturing a car.

The German publication reports independent vehicle manufacturer Magna Steyr could be tapped. We’ve also heard that senior executives from Apple, including CEO Tim Cook, were invited by BMW to tour manufacturing facilities for the i3 electric car. “
