Ford, Porsche and most successful tinkerers turned automakers got their start in racing. Ford focused on explosion engines after Edison pounded his fist encouraging Ford to drive off his limited grid and Porsche started out with hybrids setting land speed records to get the attention of Mercedes Benz father who recruited him over to Daimler. They both sought speed years before they started some of the world's longest running automakers.
Believe it or not most everything we drive has roots in racing.
Looking forward, one can only imagine if these
digital designs and digital technologies will drive
the century of digital automaking dawning today?
One of the most intensive tests on any new racing technology
is a 24 hour race like the one this Gumpert Apollo Hybrid entered.
The future is looking efficient and fast!
