Kim's senior design manager Kim explains working on model 3, S, X and Y, and Roadster V2 and Semi. This background, along with Tesla's leading automotive engineer, who recently returns to Apple and the latter company recruiting other former Tesla employees, may prove that Apple is trying to build its own car again. However, given Kimi's experience, there is nothing real about what he is likely to focus on.
Apple is Apple, Jony Ive will probably still dominate major design decisions. But adding thoughts that someone is clearly talented like Kim messed up can only be positive for Apple's future products.
