Is Apple working on a car? Maybe, but CEO Tim Cook still won’t say one way or the other.
When asked about the Cupertino, Calif. company’s potential automotive plans on 60 Minutes, the Apple boss simply laughed.
“One of the great things about Apple is we probably have more secrecy here than the CIA,” Cook finally told television journalist Charlie Rose.
Rumors that Apple may be making a car have been floating for months, if not years. It’s an intriguing thought: The company has redefined consumer technology design, while the technology and automotive spaces have never been more closely aligned. Still, making a successful car is a long way from making smartphones and laptops.
