Is iCar the Next Big Apple Adventure?

Apple Balla reports that in a second unsolicited advice in a short time, Apple’s chairman Arthur Levinson and its executive boss Tim Cook received a letter from the analyst Adnaan Ahmad, with a suggestion to buy car manufacturer Tesla and design the first iCar. The previous unsolicited suggestion came from the billionaire Carl Icahn, who pressured Apple’s CEO Cook to buy back $150 billion of the company stocks.

London-based Ahmad, who is employed by the German investment bank Berenberg, explained his suggestion that Apple should move into the auto industry as exactly the kind of move that made Apple what it is, with its history of disrupting industries and planning out of the box. The revenue growth from an iCar would be something that Apple cannot expect in the long run just from its mobile devices.

Ahmad adds that it is possible that Apple’s entrance into the auto industry would completely revitalize this failing US  industry and would be a catalyst for speeding up the current transition to hybrid and electric cars.

Although aware that his proposal will be ridiculed by some, Ahmad wrote in his letter to Apple that he is convinced that Apple would hugely benefit from an "out of the box" move to the new market. It cannot expect to have high returns and growth from its iPhone business for any foreseeable future.

Neither Tesla nor Apple commented on Ahmad’s letter.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
