Apple VW iCar

AppleInsider | Report claims Apple talking with Volkswagen over ‘iCar’:
Readers may want to take this one with a bag of rock salt, but German magazine Capital is reporting that Apple and automaker Volkswagen have engaged in early discussions over a concept car dubbed “iCar.”

The report—available via Google translation—claims that Volkswagen chief executive Martin Winterkorn recently flew to California where he sat down for a brainstorming session with Apple’s Steve Jobs.

Though still in the early planning stages, the two firms reportedly plan to cooperate on the development of a new generation of Volkswagen compact cars that would include several Apple tie-ins.

I can tell you one thing. Capital magazine is a respected German publication. I went and read the article and it actually says that a VW spokesman confirmed that Apple and VW are “in early stage talks”.

This will spark some imaginations out there!
