Apple’s had dreams of making a car for a long time. Rumors have even floated around that Steve Jobs really wanted to make an iCar and that Apple considered making an iCar before they made the iPhone, but decided against it.
Well, if you can’t make your own car, you might as well team up with one of the most luxurious car companies in the world. In a statement today, Ferrari announced that Eddy Cue, a senior vice president at Apple, will be joining their board of directors.
“I am pleased and proud to become a member of the board. I have personally dreamed of owning a Ferrari since I was 8 years old and have been lucky to be an owner for the past 5 years. I continue to be awed by the world-class design and engineering that only Ferrari can do,” said Eddie Cue, commenting on his nomination to the board.
Eddy Cue was a prominent figure in the recent Apple management shakeup that saw Scott Forstall departing from the company. Along with overseeing iTunes, the App Store, iBookstore, and iCloud, Cue has now been tasked with fixing Siri and Apple Maps.
No other information was given as to what Cue will be doing for Ferrari, but maybe he’ll find a way to squeak in some cool Apple touches into the Ferrari lineup.
