I'll lose all respect for them if they are designing an electric Minivan.
I suspect the minivan is collecting data for the system.
Maybe innovator's curse. Their stock is valued on how they can innovate as it is expected. Not just sales.
They need to have something in the pipeline always to tease people.
Oh, I’m not. It was a roundabout (and perhaps confusing) way of imagining what Apple would do with an assumed car.
Apple CarPlay in Jeeps finally!

Most importantly the first car without Windows.
Samsung actually has been making cars for years. I saw quite a few of them during my last trip to South Korea. I don't know how much they are involved now, but they started making cars in the 90's.
Sync is actually not that bad now. Thankfully Ford finally has ditched Microsoft for Sync 3.

But bear in mind that Apple sold 74,000,000 iPhones last quarter. That's 34,000 every hour of every day. Tesla sold 11,627 vehicles last quarter, or about as many iPhones as Apple sold every 20 minutes. There would be no money in making cars for Apple. And the development costs! A disaster!

I don't buy this story. But if it's true, there won't be an announcement for another 4 to 5 years at the earliest. Developing a car from ground up is not trivial.
Yeah, It would be a "mini-van" the way an iPhone is a "cell-phone".
Not for long.
