While Tesla Motors struggles to get going in the China market and Google continues to tinker with its self-driving car, Apple fans erupted on the Internet this weekend when rumors broke that the smartphone giant may be thinking about its own vehicle.

Apple is already working on Car Play, which connects one's iPhone to a third-party car, but The Wall Street Journal reported that a project, code-named "Titan," is believed to be a minivan-like electric car.
