If this is authentic, it is just a POD as opposed to a POM.  Two completely different things.  Usually, there are several redesigns and respins in between a POD and a POM.  My company a few years ago realized that PODs for the most part are stupid and you should be designing a POM from step one with rapid prototyping of high risk parts before the design is complete.

Fun fact: The original Range Rover was being designed and tested so the engineers threw together a mock up body just to cover the mechanicals and make it look roadworthy for testing until the company hired a stylist to design a body for the production care.

But once it was on the road being tested everyone thought it looked great, so they kept it. They just tidied up the lights, door handles etc.

So maybe it's a good thing Apple didn't decide to keep this prototype as it.....
