As the FAZ has now learned from informed sources, Apple is running a secret laboratory for the development of an automobile - and this in the middle of Berlin. In addition, there should be concrete plans when and how the iCar is introduced on the German market.

Back in September, the WSJ reported that Apple upgraded its electric car to a 'committed project' giving it a target ship date of 2019. There have also been many reports that the company is running a top secret automotive testing facility in Sunnyvale.

Many have questioned how Apple might manufacturer a vehicle given its inexperience in this area. FAZ sources say the company will enlist Magna, an auto parts maker in Austria, as a production partner. Magna is said to be the largest contract manufacturer of automobiles worldwide.

Will be built the iCar in Austria. The local auto parts maker Magna, which belongs to the Austrian-Canadian billionaire Frank Stronach has. By eliminating the production of Minis capacity amounting to several hundred thousand cars per year Magna did not respond to a request of this newspaper. A spokesman for Apple said the FAZ with: The company "does not comment on rumors and speculation - not around the, iCar '".

Something that's been mentioned on battery articles or by comments on this site for a while, let's just say I think that could help make advantages with the wheels for the car. I think they're doing something amazing than just be another car!
