Apple Car likely 5-7 years away

The rumor: Apple is actively developing a self-driving vehicle, but it won’t hit the road for years to come, according to Mark Gurman (89.1% accurate).


  • “Apple Inc. will take at least half a decade to launch an autonomous, electric vehicle because development work is still at an early stage” Gurman says
  • In previous years, the project had been more focused on only developing self-driving technology
  • Other reports pegged a launch as early as September 2021

Our take: With Gurman’s wildly good track record, I take it he has the best pulse on the car project out of anyone. 2025-2027 is realistic, 2021 is not.
