Apple Poaches Ex-Tesla VP Of Interior And Exterior Engineering

Another ex-Tesla employee has surfaced at Apple: this time, according to Bloomberg, it's former VP of Interior and Exterior Engineering Steve MacManus. He marks the third former Tesla employee that has drifted over to Apple over the course of the last year. 

He left Tesla near the beginning of the month and has joined Apple as a Senior Director, according to his LinkedIn profile. He worked at Tesla since 2015, after working at Jaguar Land Rover, Bentley Motors and Aston Martin. 

It's not certain whether or not Apple is seeking his design skills beyond automotive purposes. Apple's Lead Designer, Jony Ive, announced weeks ago that he was planning on leaving the company. 

Apple also hired former Tesla drive systems vice president Michael Schwekutsch in March and former chief vehicle engineer Doug Field in August.

The two companies have been poaching each others' engineers for years. In 2015, Tesla CEO Elon Musk called Apple a "Tesla graveyard". There has long been speculation of a partnership between the two companies, but nothing has ever materialized. 

We noted that MacManus had left Tesla in an article early in July.
