Another Apple Car engineer has decided to leave the company for a startup.
As reported by CNBC, Michael Schwekutsch, a director of engineering on the Apple Car project, has left the company. According to the report, the executive has joined Archer, an electric air taxi start-up, as its senior Vice President of Engineering.
In a note to investors on Wednesday, Morgan Stanley analysts Katy L. Huberty and Adam Jonas expressed how worried Tesla is about the eventual entrance of the Apple Car into the electric vehicle market.
The Apple Car project has been a revolving door of engineers for years now. It seems that every time news breaks of Apple hiring an engineer for the project, another is leaving the company. Just at the beginning of November, news broke that the company hired a former engineer at Tesla.
