Apple's iCar Project

Apple's iCar project, rumors and Speculation

Apple Inc. revealed the dream of Steve Job's, the Apple iCar. Mickey Drexler stated that there are lots of tragedy and accidents happening in America and around the Globe, Steve  Jobs dream was to make a car which would reduce the tragedy's and shake-up the auto-mobile industry.

Since 2007, there has been rumors of the iCar, Steve Jobs had also met up with the Volkswagen group team up for workin on the Apple iCar Project. iCar a three seater plug in electric concept car as iMove with touch screen display on the dashboard which could be charged by Solar Glasses.

Apple iCar rumors and speculation have ramped up sporadically over the years. Steve Jobs, like many boomer males, was a car enthusiast, is his case with a partiality for German marques. During the second Jobs era at Apple, the notion of an Apple-branded (or at least themed) "iCar" automobile was dangled tantalizingly in fornt of crossover Apple and automobile aficionados for years. Apple is rumored to have had (or perhaps even still has) a "secret internal department" at Cupertino specializing in transport-related product development, although it's unclear weather that means car accessories , car information system, or even yet a full blown iCar.

AppleInsider Staff quoted J. Crew CEO and Apple board member Mickey Drexler commenting on Steve Job's aspiration to design an Apple "iCar" automobile. In an interview at Fast Company's Innovation Uncensored conference Dexler noted, "Look at the car industry, it's tragedy in America. Who's designing the cars? Steve's dream before he died was to design an iCar, and I think it would've been probably 50% of the market. He never did design it."

Reality is that the car industry is viciously competitive, as has been unkind to would be reformers who've imagined they could do things better. Even shooting for 5% of the market with an iCar would be wildly ambitious. A more down to earth objective for an iCar would be to crave out a profitable market niche within which to demonstrate automotive innovation Apple-style.
