2018 is drawing to a close and many still believe that Apple will release Apple Car between 2023 and 2025. Rumors surfaced in August when the company hired Tesla's chief engineer, Doug Field. Even analysts believe that the company will release its own car in the future.

Andrew Kim has worked for many large companies including Microsoft where he worked on the Xbox One S, HoloLens, and the interface Windows 10. The designer then left Microsoft and joined Tesla to design the Model S, Model X, 3 and even Model Y cars. He did the interior design of the Model 3 and can now design the car Apple.

Nevertheless, judging by the latest events, a car Apple can still await us in a few years. Of course, unless the company decides to cancel all plans (again).
