Apple Car gets conceptualized by artists

The Apple Car is probably coming, or not, but up until the time when the vehicle is either confirmed or completely abandoned, new ideas will continue to thrive.

And that’s where job site Freelancer.com comes in, after the site published a contest for artists to conceptualize what the Apple Car might look like. Considering there’s no actual data on the car, or what it might look like, one can imagine that these concepts are kind of all over the place. Some even look like future concepts from back in the 70s of what cars would look like today — but ultimately didn’t turn out to be the case.

The contest received 193 submissions from artists, and ultimately t was won by Aristomenis Tsirbas. The design, which can be seen at the top of this article, features a flat car, with sliding doors and smooth curves:

This concept explores a semi-autonomous electric car in the minimalist tradition of Apple design. It features external high resolution LED screens front and back for user selected headlight/taillight designs.

With the wide range of submissions, a wide range of vehicle types are made, too. Probably one of the most unique, as noted by MacRumors, is the shark-like concept pictured just above. It rides remarkably low to the ground, and there’s a front-panel that opens for entry. It was designed by DearbornDesign.

The winning concept took home $1,500 for their efforts, and the full list can be seen through the source link below.

The Apple Car saw plenty of media attention throughout March, but as the new MacBook and the Apple Watch near launch, the rumored vehicle has essentially fallen off the map as of late. It’s been reported that the vehicle is being developed in Sunnyvale, California at SixtyEight’s buildings in secret.
