The tech rumor that was too good to be true appears to be. Apple is building a car.
That’s right despite automotive industry naysayers in Detroit, doubters in Silicon Valley and concerns from investors on Wall Street the iPhone maker has built a car and we’ve got the first look thanks to a leaked photo from an accessory maker.
Although we don’t know all the fine details we have this photo from Amazon of an Apple Car Case that was up briefly in the wee hours of the morning before it was caught by someone at Apple and immediately pulled. Here it is:
Simple. Elegant. Derivative. Revolutionary.
That was our first impression when we imagined the clean, brushed aluminum lines and subtle four wheeled sophistication of the car that would live inside this protective case. Seating for four, likely expandable up to 6 for a handsome fee. However, that wasn’t the only leak! We also got a look at the charging cable the car would utilize.
We imagine Elon Musk over at Tesla is frantically examining these photos and is working overtime to match this offering from Apple. Can GM’s Bolt hold a candle to Jonny Ive’s clean lines and minimalist aesthetic? Honda, Toyota, Ford? The ball is in your court. Let the eCar wars begin!
