Last week I said that in the post-war period we saw some strange and sometimes unique motor cars. One was the first post-war transverse front engine FWD car built in the UK. And before you say “Mini” – it wasn’t the first! It had a two-stroke, two-cylinder motor that was mounted transversely in the front and connected to the front wheels through a four speed synchro gearbox. The high price and lack-luster performance had doomed its production. Only 600 units were produced. So what was it? It was a Lloyd.
So to this week. What is the commonality between a Tesla S and a Lohner Porsche, and more than battery powered?
