The automotive industry is divided, with some sectors supporting autonomous cars that are being developed by Apple and Google and others criticizing it, such as the CEO of Porsche. In an interview with a German medium, the top leader of the luxury car company, Oliver Blume, has assured that «iPhone belongs in the pocket and not on the road«.
In this way, Blume criticizes the idea that technology companies are trying to jump into a market in which they have little experience, since they do not see a future in which machines will replace human beings on the roads. In recent years, Porsche has introduced various tools in its vehicles that facilitate road safety in case the driver is distracted. The Porsche can drive autonomously when driving straight ahead and are capable of automatic braking when the vehicles in front begin to stop. However, Oliver Blume has assured that Porsche has no interest in developing cars that are capable of driving themselves.
That is why the CEO of Porsche has rejected the idea of partnering with tech companies like Apple to implement artificial intelligence in vehicles (hence "the iPhone belongs in our pockets and not on the road").
The somewhat risky statements those of the CEO of Porsche, taking into account that it seems that the industry is headed for a future with autonomous cars.

I think it's very good coming from Porsche, if I bought one it would be to enjoy its condition, not to take me alone.
