Sorry, no more iCar
Apple gives up on taking on Tesla and Google, making cars is way too hard. They will concentrate on developing software or technologies and to partner with existing vehicle manufacturers. Apple's Project Titan, has been redirected in developing software and technologies for autonomous driving systems.
Apple started Project Titan in 2014 aggressively hiring Tesla and large automobile companies' engineers. They hoped to define and revolutionize the car industry, they hoped to create a competitive car brand. By 20015, the project was stalled by internal strife and failure of leadership, many engineers left or got laid off. The project has been 'refocused'.

Samsung wouldn't even dare make rolling bbq grills.

Gee, SO disappointed. /sarc

Still don't know who's asking for autonomous cars. :confused:

I still want my updated Model T.

I'd like one for my dad. He can't legally drive, I ferry him to the doctor and such pretty frequently. It would help him keep his independence, and probably cost a lot less if he could do some sort of ride-sharing or simply hail an autonomous taxi.

Last thing I'd want is to share the roads with an Apple car. I mean, that's an even worse thought than a Microsoft car: If Microsoft Made Cars

And note that with some cars the last item has become true: you DO have to push the START button to turn them off :-(
