Apple reportedly hires former Tesla vehicle engineering VP
Apple has reportedly hired Tesla's former Vice President of Vehicle Engineering, Chris Porritt, to work on "special projects". Given Porritt's background, which includes time as Aston Martin's chief engineer, Porritt could very well be working Apple's rumored car project, also known as Project Titan.
Porritt is said to have worked on Tesla's Model S and X vehicles. He has a background in vehicle dynamics and architecture, and his expertise would likely prove invaluable on a car project. Porritt's supposed hire follows reports from earlier this year that Steve Zadesky, thought to be the lead on Project Titan at the time, was leaving Apple.
