Apple founder Steve Jobs discussed plans for an Apple car in 2008 with Tony Fadell, the father of the iPod.
However, Jobs decided to focus on the iPhone instead due to the state of the American car industry during the recession.
Both Apple and Google are currently working on automated vehicles to rival Elon Musk's Tesla brand but Fadell revealed that the Cupertino giant's founder was thinking about four-wheelers seven years back.
Fadell stated that he and Jobs discussed everything from fuel to the seats and dash on a hypothetical Apple branded four-wheeler.
Apple CEO Tim Cook recently warned the car industry about massive changes while speaking at a Wall Street Journal Conference in October. Apple is widely expected to launch an electric vehicle that could be self-driving by the year 2019.
