The report comes from Jalopnik's Detroit sub-blog, which reports that an anonymous source has confirmed that the Livonia, MI-based company is screwing together the tiny, two-seat autonomous car that we showed you earlier today. Both Roush and Google issued statements to Jalopnik that neither confirm nor deny the company's involvement in the project.
According to the unnamed source, Roush is currently hiring engineers for the project, which will see assembly commence at the company's Allen Park, MI facility. There's also, allegedly, been a fair amount of travel to Mountain View, CA for current employees.
We'll keep our ears open for any additional information.
