Tesla CEO Elon Musk took a dig at Apple, telling the BBC in an interview that the company’s rumored electric car is an “open secret.” Musk said this in response to a question about if he had heard anything about Apple’s plans of developing a car.

Apple’s car project still a secret?

As evidence, Musk pointed towards the huge number of new hires at Apple with a background in the automotive industry. He said that when a company hires more than a thousand engineers for a particular task, then it becomes pretty difficult to keep it a secret. Tesla’s CEO believes that Apple is very “serious” about the project.

The first rumors surrounding Apple’s car project, codenamed “Project Titan,” surfaced in early 2015.

Evidence pointing towards Apple working on a car has been growing over the past few months.
