Ok, so this one is just a rumor for now, and if it does happen it may not be by 2017. A self-driving Apple car would seriously shake up the entire auto industry if it does pan out, so it deserves a mention nonetheless. The Silicon Valley tech giant has recently been poaching well-respected auto executives from all over the world who are working in secret on a huge car-related project codenamed Titan. If Apple does get into the new car business, it will not do so unless it has something completely revolutionary. History tells us it is just the type of company to pull that off.
