Buzz around Apple's potential foray into the auto world has a lot of investors, such as Kevin O'Leary, really excited. The O'Leary Financial Group chairman and "Shark Tank" investor told CNBC's "Squawk Alley" on Tuesday, "That's interesting to me because I think that car can exist within the next five years."
"I like it as an investor because you've captured me for an hour and a half of the day in a car that you control the ecosystem in," he said. "That is a story I would like to hear Apple tell."
O'Leary told CNBC that there is nothing stopping Apple from setting up a platform for driverless-cars that can provide service similar to Uber. The added benefit would be an advertising advantage within the car since the company will already have a lot of data on users who own iPhones and other Apple products.
"I think there is a place for that in Apple's world," he added.
