Apple hires Porsche specialist

Alexander Hitzinger is the latest auto specialist to be recruited by technology giant Apple as it explores building its own car. Earlier this month, Apple urged regulators not to impose too many restrictions on developers of self-driving cars.


Hitzinger, could not be reached for comment.  Porsche confirmed Hitzinger had left the company in the spring. Apple was not immediately available for comment.


Hitzinger helped Porsche, owned by Volkswagen, return to endurance racing and to develop the 919 hybrid sports car from scratch, much in the same way Apple is now looking into building its own vehicle.


Porsche’s new race car won Le Mans and the endurance racing world championship in both 2015 and 2016 using largely unproven technology, which beat far more established rivals.
