Nor is it an electric vehicle, like the Teslas he is producing at a factory in Fremont, California. Tonight, Musk showed off a 1.14-mile test tunnel — that snakes its way underneath 120th Street in the city of Hawthorne — that his other busines...

There's Speculation that Apple is Designing a Car—Here's What We Think the "iCar" Experience Will Be Like

News broke yesterday that Apple hired yet another Tesla designer to join their design team, bringing back previous speculations that Apple is working on designing a car. Based on design decisions made by Apple in the past, we've put together our best guess at what the "iCar" experience might be like: iCar is autonomous, but in order to brake or turn, you need to say "Hey Siri, brake" or "Hey Siri, turn left". Siri doesn't often hear or listen to you, but when she does it's quite a seamless ex...
