It has happened: straight from Apple's website, an announcement for CarPlay, a version of iOS designed strictly for vehicles. It looks like you will still need an iPhone to make things work, though. Reportedly Google Maps will not work on this set up.

CarPlay features Siri voice control and is specially designed for driving scenarios. It also works with your car’s controls — knobs, buttons, or touchscreen. And the apps you want to use in the car have been reimagined, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.
