For longtime, it was rumored that Apple is working on automotive-related projects, but it had not been confirmed by the company.

On Friday, California Department of Motor Vehicles made the news public and the agency said Apple has been given permission to test three cars manufactured by Lexus.

Rumors about Apple’s car ambitions have ranged from widespread theory that it was building its own car to the suggestion it was instead focusing more on in-car software. Apple's Project Titan, at one point was believed to have over 1000 employees that were working on it.

As it is now reported, Apple became the 30th company to be granted a self-driving car testing permit. Of course Apple’s competitors have been testing autonomous vehicles long since that time.

San Francisco – Apple plans to start testing self-driving cars on California roads, but it is not clear whether the world’s most valuable tech company wants to design or build autonomous vehicle technology. Neil Cybart, from Above Avalon site said, “Apple is working on a transportation platform Instead of selling cars.” Although it has never openly acknowledged it is looking into building an electric car, Apple has recruited dozens of auto experts in recent years, and the permit puts the company bit a head on any possible plan.
