Apple iCar is an electric automobile project secretly operated by Apple Inc. The project is code name "Titan". A substantial number of Apple employees are working on this project.[1][2][3]

The Apple iCar project Titan was approved by Tim Cook a year ago and assigned to Vice President Steve Zadesky, a former Ford engineer as project in-charge.[4] For the project Apple also hired Johann Jungwirth, the former-president and chief executive of Mercedes-Benz Research and Development North America, as well as at least one transmission engineer.[5][6][7][8]

Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs had plans to design and build a car according to Apple board member and J. Crew Group CEO Mickey Drexler. Discussions about the concept surfaced around the time that Tesla Motors debuted its first car.[9] Reports indicate that the company has been offering incentives to Tesla employees to join Apple.[10] The Wall Street Journal reports that the product would resemble more of a minivan than a car,[1] and The Sydney Morning Herald says that production could start as soon as 2020.[11]
