Apple's Project Titan Completion Date Moves Up To 2019?
It has been long reported that Apple's upcoming electric car codenamed Project Titan, is scheduled to be completed by the year 2020. There has been loads of rumored information on Titan in the recent few weeks ranging from a possible test site to Apple's hiring of car engineers.
And now, the Wall Street Journal, is reporting that Apple could be done with Titan by 2019, a full year ahead of the projected date.
According to the news report, Apple has added another 1,200 employees to the Titan team thereby tripling in size. The WSJ also says that the first Apple electric car model won't be a self-driving vehicle. Sounds like Apple's idea of withholding features for future upgrades seen in iPhones applies to Project Titan too.
An Apple executive, DJ Novotney, has been named by the WSJ, as being the one to claim the project finishing date has moved up by a year. Novotney is a Vice-President of Program Management at Apple according to his LinkedIn profile.
There has been no official word from the Cupertino company regarding Project Titan.
