One future Apple product that’s shrouded in mystery and evokes intense excitement is the Apple Car. What the electric car will look like or the kind of features it will have is still anybody’s guess. One thing is for sure, it will be nothing like what’s on the market when eventually it is released, why’s that? Because Apple is known to release products only when they are sure, it brings a unique experience for the end-user. After the rumors of Hyundai-Kia and Apple collaborating on the Apple Car were shunned into submission, Apple is still speculated to be in talks with other automotive companies like Foxconn and Magna to strike a manufacturing agreement.
That said, differentiating the Apple Car from big guns like Tesla or other big automotive names like BMW, Audi or Mercedes will be crucial – be it the aesthetics of the car or its functionality. The former can be imagined in any number of ways and that’s what Leasefetcher has done with its latest rendering of Apple Car designs. Although there have been countless designs showing the future Apple EV, these are a mash-up of popular cars with Apple products. They’ll make you twitch, grin, and even wowed depending on your interpretation – but they sure are interesting!
Nissan GT-R x iPhone 12 Pro
This performance-laden render truly demonstrates the future aesthetics of the Apple Car since it is an amalgam of one of the most iconic supercars of all time – the Nissan GT-R and the best ever iPhone that one can own – the iPhone 12 Pro. The Nissan GT-R is undoubtedly one of the best aesthetically inviting designs that Apple could take some cues.
Leasefetcher emphasis the adoption of the Nissan Ultimate Silver color along with the flowing shape extenuated by the iPhone 12 Pro button-styled door handles. The LED headlights are inspired by the camera module and the grille takes shape of the edges of the smartphone.
Toyota Supra vs iPod Classic
3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine powered Supra is Toyota’s most unique production car, and combining it with the contoured form of the iPod Classic doesn’t seem odd one bit. Laid to rest in 2014, the iconic portable music player changed the complexion of the music industry.
Here, the Apple Car takes shape of the Toyota Supra and the iPod Classic in Turbulence Grey color. For the iPod elements, the alloys adopt the nostalgic ClickWheel shape of the portable player, and the grill is tweaked to have a smooth flowing shape to highlight the Apple logo bang in the middle.
Hyundai Ioniq Electric x Apple Mouse
Being the first car that was offered as a hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and a full EV – the Hyundai Ioniq is the inspiration for this render mashed up with the Magic Mouse in a render that looks so future-forward and balanced for a compact EV design. The Apple logo is prominent even on the panoramic windshield, and the front grill. But would anything like this take shape of the Apple Car?
Honda E x iMac G3
While you might want to dismiss this as the future of the Apple Car, still the design looks interesting if ever there was a low rung variant of the Apple car like the iPhone 12 Mini. While it might not turn any eyeballs, still it is an interesting take, mashing up the Honda E with the retro iMac G3. It has the G3 split-color design draped in Platinum Pearl White front and a transparent Bondi blue black-end. Sure nostalgia is the dominating emotion here, but pitting it against a Tesla Model 3 won’t be a good idea.
Kia Soul EV x iMac Pro
Since Apple and Kia were in the limelight a few months ago for their speculated collaboration, it didn’t see the light of day. This amalgam was destined to be here with the quirky looking Kia Soul EV crossover SUV morphing partly into an iMac Pro which is a p[owerful machine to own. That said, the machine is going to be discontinued from the Apple family. Leasefetcher imagines the Apple Car could have the iMac’s Space Grey skin, highlighted by the tall profile of the windscreens on the back and the rear.
