Ultralight Watt Porsche 356-inspired electric coupe transcends time


It's become quite common for a tuner or EV startup to add a state-of-the-art electric drive to a classic sports car, 4x4 or saloon. But the UK's Watt Electric Vehicle Company doesn't take that well-worn road in announcing a light, nimble electric coupe that looks like a classic Porsche 356 A. Instead, it slides its skateboard chassis below a house-developed composite body styled after the 1956 Porsche. It calls it the WEVC Coupe and adds two seats, a rear electric motor drive and less than 1,000 kilograms of weight distributed evenly across the car.

Well, I'm kind of obsessed with the tail lights on the BMW E60 (5 series), but it does not (by any means) make it the world's best looking automobile. Nah, this award belongs to Mercedes W123, probably the best looking machine on wheels that has been ever built. Unfortunately most of them are rusty by now.

Jay Leno and his 1916 Owen Magnetic automobile.

An electric hybrid.

To put it simply, the engine’s crankshaft what attached to a horseshoe magnet which spun around an armature connected to the electric motor\generator, creating the energy that would the motor would use to drive the wheels. There was no physical connection between the transmission and the engine – just a magnetic field.

The Viritech Apricale: Britain's own hydrogen-powered hypercar


Suggestively-named UK company Viritech has announced that it's making an altogether different kind of male enhancement supplement than we'd have expected, in the form of a hydrogen-powered hypercar called the Apricale.

Viritech, which is moving into a new engineering facility at Horiba-MIRA in the British Midlands, plans to make hydrogen powertrains its core business, across a bunch of industries including aerospace, marine, energy, road and rail freight. The Apricale is one of three showpieces it's building in small numbers to demonstrate and draw attention to its capabilities.
