I’d like to direct your attention to this photo:
Breaking into the automotive industry is incredibly difficult - getting through all of the regulatory hurdles is near-Sisyphean. As a result, many startup automakers over the years have decided to lose a rear wheel to qualify for the motorcycle rules, especially those looking to make high efficiency vehicles. While…
This is an ultralight inspired by the F4U Corsair, aiming for German 120 kg, UK SSDR, and American Part 103 regulations. With a 3-cylinder VW aircooled-derived radial. It’s adorable. I want one. (I almost certainly can’t afford one.)
Eat my ass.

Gas prices: Hold my beer.
Sedans dying is a good thing. When we regain sanity and stop buying crossovers and pickups by default, bring on the hatchbacks, liftbacks, and wagons.
Pretty sure LMP1s aren’t supposed to do that.
And it’ll be all-electric, too.
I want engine and transmission combination here (if it’s a single-speed, then I want reduction boxes between the engine and the axle). Can you beat the Yaris?

If you can’t pass a test legitimately, just cheat it. Doesn’t matter if it’s standardized emissions testing, or if it’s automated code unit testing.
With hybrids and EVs requiring less braking capability, automakers should take the opportunity to improve ride quality for American roads.
