breakthrough technologies

They're going to come "fast and furious" whether this turns out to be one or not.

BTW, the Indy 500 became a certifiable joke when it banned the turbine- whether that was going to be the next big thing or not. The charade that it was "the proving ground of automobile technology" was revealed as BS. It is a bread and circuses spectacle with the occasional gladiator getting killed to add to the fun.

While there's a profound love for the internal combustion engine (particularly among the older set) it is a pretty awful machine- mostly just pours energy and waste heat out the radiator and tailpipe and is limited to 28% efficiency at optimum. 

Before anyone freaks, ICs are going to be with us for quite some time, particularly in applications like agriculture and construction.

Re: breakthrough technologies

I’ve had enough of my 2011 Colorado Chevy to drive around town, move stuff around and work. I don’t understand these turbines and so on, I don’t need it, the car wasn’t invented to drive 300 km/h, but to get from point A to point B.

Re: breakthrough technologies

I don’t agree with your thesis, but I have a Ford F150, and I can tell you that pickups are cool. A very practical and passable machine that can do anything. For example, recently made a home renovation, and just bought a couple of radiators with, why hire a delivery if have my Ford, it’s cool. When I ride it, I feel like I’m safe because the size of it gives me confidence.
