A minivan with cameras all over it was spotted driving around San Francisco and now an unnamed Apple employee has let it slip that the company is developing a vehicle. Why has Apple decided to jump into the automobile industry? That's not quite clear, but there are a couple of rumors floating around.
In particular, Apple may be working on an electric car to rival Tesla's range or a self-driving car that would ultimately also rival Google's autonomous project.
Apple may have been looking into cars for some time now. Board member Mickey Drexler said "Steve Jobs was gonna design an iCar. I think cars have an extraordinary opportunity for cool design."
All the cameras on the car seem to indicate that Apple is trying its hand at creating a self-driving car, but it might be something else entirely.
