The Internet is alive with rumours today that Apple is in talks with Volkswagen to build a small compact car, most probably dubbed, iCar.
EE Times reports the plan is to build a small sub $10,000 car to attract young buyers who are loyal to the Apple ideology. Will it work? I don’t think so.
Not that I don’t love Apple and what they have achieved in the last few years, but the difference between an iPod and an iCar will be quality issues, think about it for a minute, for around $10,000, the iCar is bound to have some shortcomings.
As far as I can see, at least the iCar will share one thing with the iPod, at that price, it will most likely be built in China!
