Apple's long-rumor car is inching closer to reality as The Guardian has obtained documents that show the company's Special Project division has talked with officials at GoMentum Station to inquire about the possibility of testing their car at the former naval base outside San Francisco.

According to the documents, Apple engineer Frank Fearon asked GoMentum Station to provide a presentation which would give an overview of the testing grounds and how they could be used.  He also inquired about timing and availability/

A tour was eventually postponed but GoMentum's program manager for autonomous vehicles wrote back to Fearon saying “We would still like to meet in order to keep everything moving and to meet your testing schedule.”

It remains unclear if a deal has been struck but GoMentum Station could be appealing to Apple as it's a high security complex which would allow the tech giant to test their car away from the eyes of prying onlookers.
