Encyclopedia

Car is a wheeled, self-powered motor vehicle used for transportation and a product of the automotive industry. Most definitions of the term specify that cars are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels with tires, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car. In that year, German inventor Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Cars did not become widely available until the early 20th century. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Cars were rapidly adopted in the United States of America, where they replaced animal-drawn carriages and carts, but took much longer to be accepted in Western Europe and other parts of the world. — Wikipedia

  • Unshakeable: All-New 2020 Porsche 911 Driven!
    by esegura on January 19, 2019 at 4:41 pm

    VALENCIA, Spain—Déjà vu typically strikes individuals, not large groups of similarly afflicted personalities. But at this point in the evolution of Porsche’s 911, you don’t need to have owned an example of the ageless rear-engine sports car to feel strongly that you’ve been here before. That’s no criticism of the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S,... The post Unshakeable: All-New 2020 Porsche 911 Driven! appeared first on Automobile Magazine. […]

    by Alex Nishimoto on January 19, 2019 at 1:03 am

    As President Trump and Congress feud over the government shutdown, regulatory agencies that test and approve vehicles for sale in the U.S. remain closed. That could impact the launch dates for several much-anticipated vehicles slated for launch in the next several months. This buzzkill is in contrast to the acres of shiny new vehicles unveiled...
