In another forum I was commenting how important the motor is to auto manufacturers going forward.

Many other parts are 3rd party, but owning the motor design is the heart of the brand.

I'd be happy with the Delorean sound from Back to the Future, accompanied by electrical sparks when achieving 88 miles per hour.

"Emotional EV motor." ...as long as they don't go overboard... a clean and cool simple sound from the actual motor without added complexity ....

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

I believe they modulate the high and low frequencies to get a rising tone with RPM.

This seems to be the most recent Bonneville thread, so I'll drop this here:



From four feet to one inch of salt? The potash company is doing more damage than a week or two of racing ever could.
