Tesla, Google, Apple: is Silicon Valley the future of the US car?

Is the future of the US car industry in Silicon Valley?
After Tesla and Google, Apple appears to be readying for a plunge into the industry long rooted far away in the steel belt of the US upper Midwest.
According to various media reports, the maker of iPhones and iPads has created a special unit baptized "Titan" with hundreds of staff to begin developing an electric car, with 2020 the target date.

The story is too old to be commented.

I just hope Apple won't end up calling it the i-car. Other then that, I welcome more competition in the electric car business.

What is the next thing coming... Predictive Driving? Or a new level of security... To get the Car moving we would have to put in our iTunes password... O_O

Please, General Motors needs deserves so much less. Look at how tesla has treated updates. there has been 30+ software updates which have pushed to all cars ever sold. Autopilot, increased performance, extra features, ect. GM will never do that, they just string it along to the next year model and abandon the previous. Even cars like the CTS 2014 is no longer updated for software/firmware. Not because they can't, but because they are cheap and greedy.

I hope every silicon valley company sees this opportunity to shake the market up, its needed.

I can see apple changing the car industry, like they changed the phone industry.
