Apple Car concept render developed from patent applications points to possible design direction

Concept creators at Vanorama have created renders of what the Apple Car could look like based on patent applications filed by the Cupertino giant. While hardly the most ideal way to imagine what the Apple Car might eventually look like, it is in an interesting exercise nevertheless.

News that Apple was working on an electric car, potentially self-driving, first leaked in around 2014 under the codename Project Titan. It had been something that the late Steve Jobs had considered as far back as 2008, not long after Tesla had launched its first car. The project, however, has had its ups and downs, with plans to actually build a car scrapped in favor of continuing to develop its autonomous software. 

At its height, however, Project Titan is said to have had in excess of 5,000 Apple employees working on it, although these are merely educated guesses. Exactly where it is at, and what Apple’s ultimate plans in relation to the Apple Car are still something of a mystery. However, Apple has filed numerous patents for a fully functional car along with exterior and interior design concepts.

Using this material, the concept creators at Vanorama have created our first look at what a potential Apple Car might look like if it ever was to see the light of day. As you can see, it is a relatively compact design with seating for four adults. The full length dashboard is all-digital with deep iOS integration, as you would expect. The seats also rotate inwards for all four passengers to be able to engage in conversation while the car is, presumably, driving itself.

Hit up the link below if you want to take a look at a 3D render of the Apple Car concept.

Buy the iPhone 11 Pro unlocked and renewed from Amazon for US$560, a saving of US$49.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
