Perhaps with the recent success of electric vehicles, Apple would move away from traditional automakers, and maybe work with Tesla Motors (TSLA), where there are already grounds for a relationship.
George Blankenship, Tesla's vice president of worldwide sales and ownership experience (who I interviewed in June), is a former Apple guy. In fact, Tesla's retail experience is a direct result of Blankenship's time at Apple.
I'd be willing to bet dollars to donuts that Apple has (or had) plans for an iCar somewhere in the drawers in Cupertino. You can also guarantee that Siri would (or will) likely play a major role in it too.--Written by Chris Ciaccia in New York >Contact by Email. Follow @Commodity_Bull
