Much has been made of the autonomous cars built and powered by Google and Apple, but most people are unaware than Delphi Automotive was the first car company to venture cross-country using autonomous technology.
In April of 2015, Delphi employees drove(is that accurate with autonomous tech?) from San Francisco to New York City. Bully for the Americans! Why should you care? Delphi is taking the roadshow on an international tour, so to speak. Continue reading “Delphi To Test Autonomous Vehicles In Singapore” »
It is hard to classify the Audi Q7 e-tron TDI Plug-in Hybrid. May thinking of it as a locomotive with a cord would help. One thing is for sure, it fits in a niche, within a niche, within yet another niche; essentially a niche of one. Sure, there have been diesel hybrids in the past(the Volvo V60 PHEV), but none have been this large nor have they offered quite the same amount of electric-only range. When an SUV hits the market offering 1,287 km of driving range from a 75 liter tank, it has to be looked at. Continue reading “A Quick Look At The Audi Q7 e-tron TDI Plug-In Hybrid” »
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS is, in our well regarded opinion(well, we regard it), the apex of a tremendous 911 lineup. At least it is now that the 918 Spyder has been mothballed. In order to have such a designation, the 911 GT3 RS has to be chock full of technology, so we thought it would a great deal of fun to delve into the various tech that underpins a car that makes you giggle like a schoolgirl when you get in or out of it.

After the age of the American cowboy culture, the vacuum had to be filled with something else. The cowboy culture was defined by speed, aggression and ambition. It is thus little wonder that the first muscle cars were American, tuned V8 engines that could eat the miles fast. Are you surprised that a car’s output is measured in horsepower? A crude interpretation of how many horses could be needed to produce the kind of power in a given time… you know work done over time taken. Today, we have street legal production cars that can go faster than a jet when it is at full speed for takeoff.

The history of car transmissions
Over one hundred years ago, when the internal combustion engine barely produced a single horsepower, a single-speed transmission and clutch was all that was necessary to get moving. With the introduction of the 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen, the first road trip traveled along at a blistering 16 km/h. Eventually, with the development of more powerful engines, multispeed transmissions were necessary to eliminate the jerky motion that would inevitably occur when slamming into gear to get moving. Multispeed transmissions also enabled cars to go ever faster, such as the 1908 Ford Model T, equipped with a 15 kW engine and two-speed transmission, which had a top speed of up to 72 km/h.

When it comes to car maintenance, perhaps the most frequent thing we need to do is wash the carand change motor oil. Of course, less often, we also need to change the engine air filter, engine coolant, transmission fluid, brake pads, brake fluid, and tires, to name a few. Most older vehicles, as the age-old rule-of-thumb suggests, had their oil change every 3,000 miles or three months, whichever came first. Modern vehicles may stipulate, depending on usage, up to 10,000 miles between oil changes, thanks to modern engine manufacturing processes, as well as modern lubricant technology. The question is, is your motor oil doing all it should, or all it could? Are you ready for a different kind of oil change?
