Remember how Apple lost it's way after Jobs was ousted?
Apple was a mess when Jobs returned to the company. The first thing he did was consolidate many overlapping products so it could concentrate on building excellent core products. We're aleady seeing Phablets and mini tablets and, soon, watches (of questionable value). Automobiles require a lot of low tech (transmissions, suspensions, brakes, wheels, bodies) as well as high-tech guts. I think it would be mistake for Apple to venture into the automoitive segment.

Re: Digital DeLorean

"There should have been a line in there about how Apple's metallurgists developed extremely hard and special steel for the chasis and frame to increase safety."

There was a line for that: "The Apple Car and Apple Car Sport have been sculpted from graphene-reinforced aluminum of unsurpassed strength and durability. The Apple Car Executive adds a layer of synthetic polymer that allows the vehicle to self-heal minor dents and abrasions."

"Of course you will need to have the Apple Car App on your iWatch in order to start the car."

There is no need for that. According to the "press release," the Apple Car will use TouchID for ignition and door opening.
