You have heard the rumors and it looks like they are not so unbelievable, after a recent interview with Tony Fadell, CEO Alphabet’s Nest who revealed his time in Apple at a Bloomberg TV interview. Fadell revealed his conversation with Steve Jobs back in 2008 discussing the possibilities that could be provided if they designed a car. To add to this a Wall Street Journal also reported that a team of 1000 people were secretly working to create Apple’s first venture in the automotive industry under the name Project Titan.
According to this journal Apple CEO Tim Cook approved the project a year ago and directed product design Vice President Steve Zadesky to assemble his team to get started with this project.

Adding to a level of luxury, each rear passenger gets their own infotainment system with one screen at the rear of the driver’s seat and two that swing from the doors. The driver’s seat has been reclined and the dashboard has been designed to provide an expanded panoramic view. The car is powered by Mazda’s hydrogen fuelled engine.
