Tim Cook on Apple Car: 'It's Going to Be Christmas Eve for a While'

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook employed a bit of wit when an investor asked him today about the long-rumored Apple Car at today’s annual shareholders meeting in Cupertino.

“Do you remember when you were a kid and Christmas Eve was so exciting? You weren’t sure what was going on downstairs?” Cook responded. “Well, it’s going to be Christmas Eve for a while.”

Cook then deadpanned, “Maybe I should have called on someone else.”

The car isn’t exactly around the corner. It’s expected to ship in 2019.
