German magazine Capital was one of the first to report that Volkswagen and Apple”s CEO, Steve Jobs, were in discussion of producing a car together. While the ‘iCar’ was expected to become a reality before the end of the decade, latest reports from Capital say that talks between the two companies are stalling.
According to ‘company sources,’ the cause for the hold-up is apparently because Apple is in talks with several other auto makers on producing a car loaded with Apple goodies.
Apple and Volkswagen have joined forces before in 2003 for a Beetle that was given a complimentary iPod as a part of a “Pods Unite” promotion.
