Apple In Talks To Buy McLaren: Report [UPDATE: McLaren Says No]

Apple, the computer company, is in talks to buy McLaren, the supercar and race car company, according to a report from the Financial Times. Apple has been attempting to develop its own car for a while now, and this would appear to be a huge change in its direction.

UPDATE 1:04 PM EST: McLaren is throwing water on the rumors, completely denying an Apple acquisition of the company. Check out our full story here for more details. The original post is below.

It could either be a major investment or an outright purchase of the company, the FT reports:

The California technology group, which has been working on a self-driving electric vehicle for more than two years, is considering a full takeover of McLaren or a strategic investment, according to three people briefed on the negotiations who said talks started several months ago.

It would definitely be a bit of a weird tie-up on the surface. Apple, by all indications, has been looking to make electric self-driving cars for a while. McLarens, as we can personally attest, are best enjoyed when a person is driving.

I thought as I got older, I would learn wisdom and patience, but the only thing I have learned so far is that I don't give a damn.
