    I would love to see an Apple car, sure it would look like the one Quorra uses in Tron or something like it.

    You bet if there is a leak about Apple entering the automotive industry Toyota, Ford and even Ferrari would be scared to death... I wouldn't sleep if I was them.

    I would be smooth, full recyclable, electric, it wouldn't use any kind of oil, lets not to mention the electronics and the look of it.

    And if it hit a bump in the road it would break. And if you gripped the steering wheel too hard it would turn off. :p Plus the windshield would be glossy and we couldn't see anything.

    You could only fill up at Apple charge stations unless you buy their adapter.
    There would be no insurance available.
    It would come in only white.
    Every time you go somewhere you would have to announce "Driven in my iCar".
    "Car" would become trademarked.
    People would try to blend it.

    Oh, please no. No automaker would be quaking in their boots, they'd just laugh.

    lol

    I am just remembering that since Snow Leopard all my computers all of the sudden have this thing that falls in your desktop and ask you to restart the machine all of the sudden.

    "People would try to blend it" That is so real lol.

    It'd tag you the whole time you drove.

    "Now on Whitaker St."

    "Left on Turnip Ave. Tagged 2 occupants"

    "Now at Wendy's. Ordered 4 #2's. Riding solo"

    Would only work on certain road types. Wouldn't dare touch the outdated and cheap Asphalt. You'd be exclusive anyway. Wouldn't want to be near high traffic areas; Apple knows.

    The first one would have 50hp. It'd take 4 years to get up to 200hp.

    And of course it would so thin and low in profile you'd need an extra wide letter box to park it in. But it would look good though :)

    iCar Air, so small Steve Jobs would pull it out of a Smart Car.

    Well you could have 7 windows if you bootcamped it. Come to think of it you could camp in the boot if you had to :D

    There is no right or wrong way to drive it.

    There has been talk about this for at least 5 years! With hints of VW and Mercedes being involved.

    Personally I wouldn’t want one.

    I don't really want Apple to become The Company that controls everything.

    (Mind you, if anyone can get the world driving electric cars, it would be Jobs.)
