    Exactly.  That picture was not taken in Germany.  Saturn wasn't sold in Germany.  Both vehicles have California plates.

     

    Appleinsider definitely isn't up for any news awards.

    The Saturn and California plates are on the photo of the real Apple van.

    Yes, AI has regularly posted about Google's self-driving cars, long before rumors about an Apple self-driving vehicle emerged. (The Google vehicles are quite obvious and are clearly labeled as such.)

     

    These prototypes have been on the roads for a couple of years, at least in and around Mountain View, CA. On average, I probably see one per week, and I don't drive particularly much.

     

    I've seen a few unlabeled vehicles with similar equipment from time to time, don't know who they belong to.
