Managers of sports car maker Porsche traveled to the United States late last year to discuss possible joint projects with iPhone maker Apple and some other tech companies, the Porsche CEO said Friday.

“We already have Apple CarPlay, we’ll expand that,” Chief Executive Oliver Blume said Friday during a video conference on the automaker’s annual results.

He said that Porsche and Apple have traditionally worked closely together and that they were “on the same wavelength”, but added that it was too early to make decisions about future projects.

Blume also said Porsche is considering entering Formula 1, but said no decision has been made yet.

The German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung had reported in January that Volkswagen’s supervisory board would decide at the end of February whether both the luxury brand Audi and Porsche would join F1.
