Silicon Valley:- Tesla’s owner, Elon Musk, has said it is an “open secret” that Apple is making a rival electric car. He also predicted vehicles that could not drive themselves would become a “strange anachronism” before too long. The tech entrepreneur’s comments were made during an exclusive interview with the BBC at his design studio near Los Angeles. Tesla vies with Nissan and BMW to be the world’s bestselling electric-car brand, but currently runs at a loss. An added challenge is that over recent months several of its engineers have been hired by rivals, including China-backed Faraday Future and Apple.–BBC
