“Car magazine Motor Trend caused a stir on Wednesday when it teased images of what it called the Apple Car. Some people thought the renderings — released on Motor Trend’s Twitter feed — were leaked images of the still-in-development Apple Car,” Daisuke Wakabayashi reports for The Wall Street Journal. “But, in reality, the images are part of a cover story out Thursday that the magazine put together, speculating what the highly anticipated vehicle might look like.”
