Recently, Koenigsegg delivered the first Regera to a customer in ‘naked’ carbon fiber. Yes, instead of paint, or even coated carbon, this car has straight-up carbon. Koenigsegg Naked Carbon, or KNC, has no coating, lacquer, or varnish. Furthermore, the thin layer of epoxy is removed via polishing by hand. If whomever strokes slightly more than necessary, the weave structure could be ruined… phew! That’s a ton of pressure on the people, or person, who handle this task. With Regera meaning “to reign” or “to rule” in Swedish, this person definitely reigns the carbon world. Not surprisingly, the raw carbon style looks absolutely stunning!

The Koenigsegg Naked Carbon Regera is quite a phenomenal vehicle on the outside. But, let’s also take a look “under the hood”. The Regera sports a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. Furthermore, there are (3) total electrical motors. These include (2) YASA 750 R motors and (1) YASA P400 motor. Together, the engine and electric motors produce 1,500 horsepower! Furthermore, all of this power works in combo with a Koenigsegg Direct Drive transmission, a 1-speed fixed gear setup. So, there is no “granny shiftin’, not double clutchin’ like you should” (Dom in The Fast and the Furious) in this car. Finally, this car has a 4.5 kW-h liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery. This battery can run solo for up to 22 miles. Do note, this battery is more so for the electric motors than actual driving distance.

Volkswagen Considers Partnership with Ford for U.S. Production

Volkswagen Considers Partnership with Ford for U.S. Production

VW Considers Manufacturing in U.S.

Surprising to many, Ford and Volkswagen have become close friends in recent years with big plans in mind. Ford and VW are already partners for commercial vehicles, but there are quite a few other possibilities going to take place. No, VW will not have equity in Ford. But, the two companies will work together to benefit each other. This won’t be the first-time automakers from separate continents came together for both to benefit. For more details, expect a public statement sometime in January of 2019. For now, this article will cover what is known so far.

The Known & the Unknown

While it is already known that Ford and Volkswagen work together on commercial vehicles, the rest is not set in stone. There are quite a few possibilities to take place between the companies. Firstly, VW may build Ford vehicles in Europe. Secondly, Ford will build a Ranger style pick-up for VW. Now, VW has interest in building units at Ford’s U.S. plants. Why you may ask? Most likely due to current threats from the Trump administration. Trump has threatened European manufacturers with tariffs that would ruin their sales in the U.S.. Although an extremely dumb decision, European manufacturers have reason to worry. With a firecracker like this, who knows what will come next.

What Will Come of Ford & VW?

Many people wonder, what will come of the partnership between Ford & Volkswagen? But, only the future will tell. Recently, VW CEO Herbert Diess spoke to reporters in Washington, D.C.:

“We are building an alliance with Ford which will strengthen Ford’s position in Europe because we will share platforms… We might use Ford capacity here in the U.S. to build cars for us.” – VW CEO Herbert Diess

With a statement like this, Ford and VW will most likely work together in some way, if not all. There is also a possibility that VW will build a second plant. The CEO has stated that VW is in “quite advanced negotiations in Tennessee but there might be other options as well.” In conclusion, the Ford and VW relationship could make for a beautiful friendship between major companies.

Porsche Aims to Increase Taycan Production Due to Demand

Porsche Aims to Increase Taycan Production Due to Demand

High Demand for the Taycan

Due to strong demand, Porsche plans to increase Taycan production beyond 20,000 units per year. The Porsche Taycan is an all-electric vehicle, previously known as Mission E, that is taking the market by storm. Porsche received so many early reservations on the Taycan, that it is building a facility specifically for it. In Zuffenhausen, Germany, Porsche will build the Taycan at its own facility. Furthermore, this facility even includes an assembly line and paint shop. That means that the manufacturer has very high hopes for this model. With production beginning mid-2019, Porsche is getting ready to surge the auto market.

Basics About Porsche Taycan

Under the hood, the Porsche Taycan does not have a typical Porsche V6 or V8. But, this car does sport two permanently excited synchronous motors. These work in combo to produce over 600 horsepower. This power level will allow the Taycan to reach 60 mph in under 3.5 seconds. Furthermore, Porsche expects the Taycan to hit 124 mph in 12 seconds. Finally, with a 800 volt battery, the car can charge for 250 miles in around 15 minutes.

The Future of Porsche is Coming

Overall, Porsche seems to be opening up more and more to electric vehicles. With the Porsche Taycan, the company will “dip its toes” into the electric auto market. This will surely shape the future of the company moving into the electric rush of the 2020s. Other companies are already working towards major releases such as the Audi E-Tron GT, the BMW iNext Vision, and the Mercedes-Benz Vision Urbanetic. Currently, the Taycan will be split between the Cross Turismo and sedan variants with a Targa version possible in the future. Surprisingly, the largest demand for this car was in Norway with 3,000 paid down payment orders. Usually, Porsche only sells 600 total cars in this country. In conclusion, the Porsche Taycan is sure to stir up the electric auto market, including Tesla.

Basic Shock & Spring vs. Coilover Comparison

Basic Shock & Spring vs. Coilover Comparison

What is the Difference?

In the automotive industry, cars have suspension systems that differ depending on car type, manufacturer, and/or modifications. The most common discussion is between coilovers versus the typical shock and spring layout. While shock and spring is pretty straight forward, some may be confused about how coilovers work. But, let’s review shock and spring setup first, due to simplicity. For a shock and spring system, the spring sits atop the shock. This is the typical suspension seen in cars such as the Audi S5. Most cars come with this system, but many mod enthusiasts decide to replace it with coils.

When people replace springs on a car, it simply lowers the car via spring height. But, it also places more stress on the shocks. It is best to replace both the shock and spring, unless budget is an issue. Struts can be replaced as well, allowing for even more improvement. But, coilovers still offer a ton more adjustability overall. Let’s dive a bit deeper into coilovers below!

A Bit More Info on Coilovers

Coilovers - Front & Rear - Cameron Chapman of Wikimedia - EuroDrift

Coilovers – Front & Rear – Cameron Chapman of Wikimedia – EuroDrift

Coilovers on the other hand, are a bit different. As an auto suspension device, similar to the MacPherson strut, a coilover has a spring encircling a damper. This is different as it does not simply sit atop, such as the spring and shock system. Furthermore, this setup allows for greater range of adjustability. These include altering ride height, spring preload, shock damping, and rebound. Also, for anyone who doesn’t know, coilover is short for “coilover shock absorber”. Lastly, for your info, high-end coilovers are usually lighter than a typical system and increase handling.

If You Don’t Know, Now You Know!

Lowering Springs vs Coilovers – Presented by Andy’s Auto Sport – AndysAutoSportRV – YouTube

If you didn’t know the difference, now you know! Coilovers are usually highly appreciated by auto enthusiasts over the typical manufacturer shock and spring layout. The more expensive the coilovers, usually the better they are. Prices for coilovers can begin in the low $1,000 range with H&R and go up into the multiple thousand range, depending on performance levels. In coilovers, it is easier to dampen movement of the spring and stop oscillation, hence less bouncy rides. Lastly, one final note – a shock and a strut ARE NOT the same thing! They cannot replace each other. The strut is a structural part of the suspension system whereas the shock is not. Hopefully, this article was helpful in understanding the differences!

Marijuana: Simply Put, Don’t Smoke & Drive!

Marijuana: Simply Put, Don’t Smoke & Drive!

The Legalization of Marijuana

In recent years, Washington, D.C. and 10 states have legalized recreational use of cannabis, also known as marijuana. In these states, it is legal to consume the product and carry up to a certain amount (i.e. one ounce). For some states, growing plants at home is also legal, but refer to local law before doing so. While marijuana should be legal for adults 21+ nationwide, there are quite a few things to pay attention to, such as driving. Drugged driving is a major issue in the United States, causing unexpected individuals fines and jail time. Simply put, don’t smoke marijuana then drive. As of November 2018, the locations where cannabis can be used legally are:

  1. Alaska
  2. California
  3. Colorado
  4. Maine
  5. Massachusetts
  6. Michigan
  7. Nevada
  8. Oregon
  9. Vermont
  10. Washington
  11. Washington, D.C. (U.S. Capital)

The Effects on Operating a Vehicle

Although marijuana can be safely consumed at home, a handful of people have a misconception of driving while high. According to the U.S. Government, 2-5 ng/mL of THC can cause substantial driving impairment. And, even more so in occasional smokers. While on cannabis, a driver is two-fold likely to have an accident. Although high drivers tend to drive slower due to the drug, the control deteriorates, especially in increasingly complex situations. Research has shown that the effects include:

  1. Cognitive Impairment
  2. Diminished Perception of Vehicle Controls
  3. Divided Attention
  4. Poor Lane Positioning or Weaving
  5. Reaction Time Reduction

Not surprisingly, using alcohol with marijuana increases the likelihood of an accident even higher. This can cause a driver to have worse lane control and slower reaction times, while driving faster due to alcohols diminishing effect on fear.

Driving High Isn’t Worth It!

The Try Guys Test High Driving – YouTube

Simply put, driving high isn’t worth it! Don’t smoke marijuana and drive! While marijuana may be legal in D.C. and 10 states, each of these locations enforces drugged driving laws. This means that if you’re caught high on marijuana operating a vehicle, you may be arrested or fined. Is it really worth it? Definitely not. Simply place an order online for food via one of the modern ordering apps. This way, you can relax at home while the carrier brings your munchies supplies. Overall, marijuana legalization is a positive move forward, but only if humans respect it, just like alcohol and other impairing drugs.

1962-1965 Peel P50: The World’s Smallest Automobile

2010 Guinness World Record

In 2010, The 1962-1965 Peel P50 was declared “The World’s Smallest Production Car”. The Peel P50 is a three-wheel microcar with enough space for “one adult and one shopping bag” (advertisement by Peel in 1960s). The P50 is the main car by the Peel Engineering Company on the Isle of Man. This “city car” is quite the spectacle, with quite minimal options, and space. But, this car is quite the collectible. The car was initially worth $2,200 in 1963, but recently sold at a Sotheby’s Auction in March of 2016 for $170,000 USD. Furthermore, out of 50 total units produced, only 27 remain. This means that almost half of the P50s are gone.

Specifications of the Peel P50

From inside out, the 1962-1965 Peel P50 is quite a unique vehicle. Beginning with only one door, on the left side, this car stands out to most people. On the front, there is a single windscreen wiper and one headlight. Furthermore, there is no reverse gear, but a handle at the back allows for easy maneuverability. Lastly, the car arrives in three colors: Daytona White, Dragon Red, and Dark Blue.

So, who doesn’t want to drive a Peel P50? Well, probably quite a few people. This vehicle is very small, so height and weight most likely play a huge role in comfort. When in need to go shopping, just take the Peel P50! Parking will be easy, hauling a single grocery bag may be easy, and safety will be zero to none. Just be sure not to get in a collision in this car, as it probably wouldn’t go well. Otherwise, this car would be fun to take out for a short joy ride. Overall, the Peel P50 is the world’s smallest car, and now the world’s smallest collector vehicle.
