"Apple has an excellent reputation on information and communication systems and has incredible financial strength," the CEO said on Thursday during an earnings call.
"We would be interested" in acting as partner if Apple decides to produce a vehicle, he said.
However Degenhart was skeptical on prospects for battery-powered cars, saying Continental's electric-car operations may fail to make money "at least in the next 3-4 years."
So in other words we would like to build a car for Apple, but we don't think it will make much dosh. We should point out that so far no one sensible has said that Apple is making a driverless car. It is all based on speculation which followed a case where Apple was sued by a battery company.
