Apple’s EV with Autopilot: What Is Hidden Under the Name ‘iCar’ in the Company's Workshops

The story that the world's most popular smartphone and computer manufacturer is going to release its own car is as old as the world.

It remains perhaps the greatest mystery of our time whether the world will ever see the cherished brainchild of Apple or whether this topic will exhaust without revealing itself above the level of rumors. However, more and more analysts around the world start to believe that the “Project Titan” is dead and the company has completely abandoned the production of its iCar. This fact can easily be argued about, given that the company of the great Steve Jobs decided to keep all developments in the strictest secret.

There is a slightly different opinion among experts in the field of electronics and technology. Many of them believe that a giant like Apple can create autopilot technologies that allow cars to move autonomously on city roads without human intervention. However, no one will want to give away all the technical details of these developments for free. So, the company will have to use all its technical developments in its own vehicle.

There is another fact that confirms that Apple is serious about entering the automotive world. The company acquired a startup called Drive.AI in 2019. Some analysts believe that Apple will not release its own vehicle until the technology for fully autonomous cars is proven and reliable. In any case, all motorists in the world are eager to know what Apple’s creation will look like. Fortunately, there are such designers as Deyan Hristov, who can share their vision for the mysterious iCar.

His Apple iCar includes advanced autonomous systems that allow driving at much higher speeds, which explains the attention paid to aerodynamics. The car has the shape of a drop, which is known to be one of the most aerodynamic in our time.

The Apple iCar’s body panels are made of an advanced material that should be transparent, light, stable and flexible, as well as providing good sound and thermal insulation. As a result, the panels will not be colored. The supporting structure of the doors in the shape of a gull wing will also be made of a lightweight material such as carbon fiber.

The convex interior will provide a good fit for 4-5 passengers sitting on 180-degree rotating seats. Any of the front passengers can drive the car if they want, using the joypad. The driver’s any serious mistake will be corrected by an improved autonomous system.
