history of cars

price of the first car

The Model T made its debut in 1908 with a purchase price of $825.00. Over ten thousand were sold in its first year, establishing a new record. Four years later the price dropped to $575.00 and sales soared. By 1914, Ford could claim a 48% share of the automobile market.

It took Porsche years to develop a worthy successor to the vaunted Carrera GT supercar, but at last, the 918 is here—and it’s a plug-in hybrid! With a combined 887 hp and 944 lb-ft of torque from its mid-mounted V-8 and electric motors—one at each axle—the 918 delivers Bugatti-like acceleration, tenacious handling, and a 211-mph top end. And of course, it’s every bit as exotic-looking as any near-million-dollar supercar should be, with a low-slung, targa body, and ultra-futuristic cabin.

2016 corvette

Since the C7 Corvette arrived for the 2014 model year, it has been a dominating force in the sports car sales world, but with the 2016 model year rapidly approaching, General Motors didn’t want to sit back and enjoy the success of the new Corvette. Instead, the automaker wanted to take the input of owners and enthusiasts to make slight adjustments to the 2016 Corvette that would make it even better. As a result, the changes for the 2016 Corvette are minor, but they help to keep the C7 fresh and they give buyers a reason to consider another new Chevy supercar.

When did automobiles become popular in the US.

Not until 1913 did Henry Ford perfect the assembly-line production of his famous Model T, making cars affordable for the average American; by 1930 factory workers had churned out 20 million Model Ts. It did not take long for Utahns to become caught up in the national car craze.

What type of fuel did the first car run on?

Rudolf Diesel, the inventor of the diesel engine, designed it to run on vegetable and seed oils like hemp; he actually ran the thing on peanut oil for the 1900 World's Fair. Henry Ford used hemp to not only construct cars but also fuel them.
