SAN FRANCISCO - A new report says Apple is speeding up work on a project that could lead to the California tech giant building its own electric car.

The Wall Street Journal says Apple has set an internal timetable for a project, code-named Titan, that involves development of an electric vehicle. The newspaper said Apple has set a "ship date" of 2019, although that could just be a target for engineers to sign off on the design - not when a car would be available for sale.

Apple declined comment Monday on the report, which cited unnamed sources.

In recent months, Apple Inc. has hired experts in automotive and battery technology. Officials at an automotive testing facility located east of San Francisco have also confirmed that Apple requested information about using their site.
