The tooling up and infrastructure needed for car manufacturing is a huge undertaking for a device company such as Apple. From a business perspective to move into this industry would be high risk and not see reward on investment for a very long time. Not to mention the ability to compete with existing well established car manufacturers. Would you buy an Apple car?

My next car is going to be a Tesla, I'm already on the waiting list but it'll be another 2 years before I get mine (unless they speed up production of course).

I could also get behind Apple if they build a good product. That's what it comes down to - how good is the car that they *might* build? I care not who the manufacturer is, only the quality of the product compared to other competitive products.

Very true, quality is the biggest factor. But I don't see a problem free high quality product coming out of the shoot. Remember when Hondas first came out? Everything was wrong with them; Hyundai's the same thing.

I wouldn't. It most likely will be self driving. Boring! What is the point of being alive when all cars drive themselves.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken
