    Or does Apple want to sell their system to the auto makers after say GM's system gets poor reviews and everyone is salivating over Apple's demo?

    Those talks failed what 5 times?
    The on again off again nature with Kia likely means

    the great thing about an apple car is that they'll be trying to sell you a new one every year, and the batteries won't be replaceable
