Professional Designer’s Vision Of How Apple Car Will Look In The Future

This design proposal for the Apple car makes your idea of a motor vehicle obsolete; Just like the American tech company did with the 3.5 mm jack in their latest iPhone – or the buttons in the original.

Designed for Apple’s centenary, 60 years from now, this bold project follows one of the late Steve Jobs’ mantras, namely focusing on simplicity and minimalism. Ali Cam, the professional designer behind the Apple Car 2076, created not just a rendering but a whole philosophy back story for the company, imagining how it’ll evolve until the year 2076.

The study dramatically alters the basic concept of what we currently perceive as a car by adopting advanced driving systems, including a magnetic field-animated powertrain that uses the maglev (magnetic levitation) principle to create both lift and propulsion.

That means there aren’t any wheels, batteries or engines/motors to take up space, offering the occupants a technological lounge at their disposal. The study does, however, have a separate “easy luggage access” boot, technically making it a sedan).

The vehicle’s cabin opens via a touch ID sensor, while the interior itself is packed full of Apple’s technology, including gesture control. It also comes with smart glass tech, in which light transmission properties are altered when voltage is applied, changing it from translucent to transparent.

Naturally, the vehicle is fully autonomous; remember, this is 2076 we’re talking about. No matter what the Apple car might look like then, or if it will even exist, it’s a dead cert that humans will not be the ones doing the driving.

Special thanks to Ali Cam for the images!

    Cool perpetuum mobile you have there. Do you even physics, bro?
    This is so dumb, I don’t even.

  • Six_Tymes

    hmmm. it is interesting

  • Who Will be Number One?

    The real question is whether Apple will even be number one in the future. We just may be witnessing Apple’s heyday. I always enjoy seeing concepts.

    • emjayay

      Apple spent a bazillion dollars on a huge donut office building. Is it open yet? Anyway, definitely hubris, not to mention a concept that possibly doesn’t really work. Whether Apple is a thing in 2076 or not is highly uncertain.

    Will it float across the road??

  • Any logo would do.

    “simplest car ever”…. with magnets instead of wheels.

    ‘it’s a dead cert that humans will not be the ones doing the driving.’
    Sooooooooo mf- lame!!!!

    Clean (good), but cold-hearted design, though.

    nice coffin

    The design is slick for slick’s sake. The entry and exit look painful and it sure as heck wouldn’t work for those in wheel chairs or with back or leg problems. Ducking into it like a Lamborghini isn’t practical and would not be acceptable to product planners and sales and marketing.
    Then there’s the interior. Hmmm. Phone interfaces in the walls and a holographic watch interface in the middle. Again, not practical and would not be acceptable by Apple, Alphabet (Google), Microsoft, Ford, GM, etc. companies.
    In summary, Not Even Close.

      Since when did Apple care about the function of their products? It’s form over function all the way with that company.

  • TrevP

    I hope they plan on re-doing every road on the planet before launching this.

  • Enter Ranting

    The Apple car: works for two years, then an operating system upgrade hobbles it, and the Apple genius tells you it’s too old to fix. Just buy a new one. Apple – the art of planned obsolescence.

  • LeftLanePrius

    If I had this, I would be honking the marimba tone all the time.

  • What an utterly pointless thing. If the car is to mimic your home, why leave your home at all? Not having to go to office, is already possible with internet.

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    Why does everyone assume Apple only knows how to design things that look like iOS devices? This person must have no creativity and thinks Apple doesn’t either.
