Apple's car project reportedly under development at small German lab

Apple reportedly has a small lab in Berlin, Germany dedicated to its long-rumored car project. The lab is said to be composed of 15 to 20 people from diverse professional backgrounds, from engineering to sales.

From Franfurter Allgemeine (German, via Business Insider):

Approximately 15 to 20 men and women, "top-class from the German automotive industry" are mentally tinkering on the car of the future in the capital. The employees come from engineering, software, hardware and sales. They are relatively young people with a "progressive thinking".

Apple is also said to be looking to manufacture the car in Austria. The company is reportedly in talks with Magna, a contract manufacturing firm.

Project Titan, as Apple's car efforts are supposed called, is said to be aiming to produce an all-electric vehicle by 2019 or 2020. The vehicle is also said to be self-driving, and Apple has taken meetings with regulators over such cars.
