An engineer has created fake images of what the Apple car will look like when it is finally released.
Artistic Renderings for a fully electric autonomous vehicle was developed by Devanga Pura, a mechanical engineer at Tezpur University in India.
Like something in a science fiction movie, the shows depict a strange white car, with the capsule opening like two saloon doors to reveal a two-seater “joint-like cockpit” with a circular entrance.
Reminiscent of the 2002 Apple Emac, the car is painted in glossy white and features the Apple logo between the front and rear wheel sets.
Bora’s pictures posted on his page on “Instagram” are only descriptions of the car coming from Apple, according to “Russia Today”.
Not much is known about Apple’s Project Titan, although previous reports have suggested that the product could hit the market by 2024.
An Apple car can come in the form of a self-driving software system provided by a traditional car manufacturer such as a body vehicle or iOS cars.
“Apple has a new buzz and with that in mind, I’m self-driving, electrified and completely ‘chic’ with this miniature self-driving concept car,” Bora said.
Its design has been dubbed the “Apple Autonomy” and is one of the design flaws as the spherical capsule is slightly sunk. It has no windows, meaning passengers cannot enjoy the views as it is powered by autonomous technology.
Occupiers must rely on artificial lighting to ensure they do not sit in the dark, which will dissipate unwanted energy.
The much-anticipated Apple car has already been redesigned in other displays – British car rental company Vanarama, which has created images of the sleek gray car with sharp corners and a glowing Apple logo on the radiator grille.
The monkey design is based on the original patents filed by Apple, and includes a customizable touchscreen dashboard and a “robot assistant” such as Siri to monitor driving.
“While there is almost no way to know what the final product will look like, these patents could be a great indication of the direction Apple is taking,” said Andy Alderson, CEO of Vanarama.
Recent reports indicate that Apple’s work is still ongoing, although the technology company is very secretive about its progress.
In November, it was revealed that Apple had hired former Tesla Autopilot project manager Christopher Moore. According to Bloomberg, Moore was accused of having a disagreement with Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
Moore reports to Stuart Powers, another former Tesla executive who joined Apple last year, citing those familiar with the matter.
Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed in a short interview with Bloomberg in 2017 that Apple would build a car, although he said his company would focus on autonomous systems rather than the actual vehicle.
Apparently, Apple is considering lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries, which are less prone to overheating naturally, and therefore safer than other types of lithium-ion batteries.
It is not clear who will assemble the Apple-branded car, but sources said they expect the company to rely on a production partner.
