These days, the world's largest car manufacturers have gathered in Frankfurt, Germany to present their newest achievements at the International Motor Show.

Two companies that aren't among the exhibitors (yet) are Google and Apple, but that might well change in the years to come.

However, the company has been hiring engineers from car makers and the rumours surrounding a secret car project at Apple are pretty persistent.

According to a recent survey by Capgemini, a decent number of consumers who are in the market for a car would consider ditching their current brand in favor of a tech company. The below chart shows who is most excited about the prospect of cars made in Silicon Valley.
