Apple might be taking its foot off the gas with regards to developing its own car, with a new report indicating it may just buy its way into the car market.
According to the Financial Times, Apple is looking at luxury car maker McLaren with hungry eyes.
The tech giant hasn’t decided whether to buy McLaren outright or simply make a strategic investment, but in either case Apple would get access to McLaren’s vast experience working with lightweight materials like carbon fiber and aluminum and could leverage the auto company’s expertise in … ya know … making cars, be they hybrid or fully electric vehicles.
It’s a bold move considering McLaren only makes supercars. But, if you’re just going to snatch up a car brand, might as well go big, right? McLaren is apparently denying the talks are taking place, according to The Verge. We’ll have to see how this plays out in the coming weeks or months.
