Perhaps adding to evidence the company is working on a full-fledged car, Apple has reportedly hired Steve MacManus, a long-time auto industry veteran most recently with Tesla.

MacManus is now serving in a vague “senior director” role at Apple Park, Bloomberg noted. He was with Tesla for over four years as a VP of Engineering, but left earlier this month among several other high-profile departures, such as VP of Production Peter Hochholdinger.

The executive’s LinkedIn profile reveals that he has a particular specialty in auto interiors. Between 2004 and 2010 he was a “functional manager” at Bentley for seating and restraints, and from 2010 to 2015 he was a chief engineer at Aston Martin, working on body interiors as well as exterior trim and hardware.
