Though Apple was integrally involved with a car project titled Titan, it faced several setbacks in direction and leadership. Bob Mansfield, one of the Apple veterans is expected to take over the project. On the other hand, the Apple’s employees considered the project to be lacking in vision.

It is all set to restart the project again with a talent pool from various eminent sources.
