Forget the Apple car, I want an Apple iBike

Apple is making a car. Maybe. Supposedly. Probably? Rumors about the mythical Apple Car, codenamed ‘Project Titan,‘ have been making the rounds for a good 6+ years now, with the project reportedly stagnating and pivoting multiple times. Now the latest batch of rumors suggests the project is back on again, this time focusing on a shared autonomous vehicle that may not even have a proper steering wheel (although a driveable version may be in the works too). Apple is reportedly aiming for a 2025 la...

Apple-Inspired “Porsche Studio” boutique dealerships are coming

The world of car buying seems to be changing. Between the dozens of electric car startups and traditional sellers like Volvo moving to a direct-to-consumer boutique showroom sales model, and the death of the traditional dealership model seemingly on the horizon, it makes a lot of sense that a brand like Porsche would be next on the bandwagon. This method of sales was kind of pioneered by Apple with the glass and white aesthetic of the Apple Store and Genius Bar. This idea has been pushed into t...

Also worth noting is that the sixth win equaled the combined total i...
