Eight years ago Steve Jobs considered the Apple Car

According to the famous creator of the iPod, former engineer and close to the group founder from Apple Tony Fadell, Steve Jobs thought that idea for Apple of building a car already for 2008but in the end decided not to go ahead because I had other projects in mind. In a video interview with Bloomberg, Fadell said that he and Jobs discussed how a hypothetical apple car could it be built, what features would it have, what innovations in the control panel could it have, and so on. Then we leave you the video.

We've had a couple of run-ins on that topic, Fadell said in a Bloomberg interview with Emily Chang. If we had to build a car, how would we build it? What would its dashboard be? What would the seats be like? and How would it feed itself? (referring to gasoline, diesel or electric).

Detroit's auto industry was nearly dead, Fadell said in the interview that airs every Wednesday at 19pm on Bloomberg. It was a lot of fun putting those ideas around our heads.

As a last resort Jobs decided not to go ahead at the time because he was busy with other Apple projects.

In the end it's always like this, it was so busy, we're all so limited… It would be great to do it, but we can't, said Fadell.

Tim Cook of course is in all the rumors that lead to Titan project, and currently for many years we have talked to you on our blog about these rumors that happen to the electric vehicle, internally called Project Titan. Apple's car is actually Silicon Valley's worst kept secret, judging by Apple's numerous high-profile hires in automobile engineers, electric vehicle experts and more.
