Welcome to "Car Manufacturers"
The reason that this wiki is created is because there are no sites that contains all the current car manufacturers from the whole world (maybe the historic car manufacturers will appear later if this wiki has success). This wiki contains not only the car manufacturers but also the aftermarket tuning manufacturers. Some other interesting things about cars and everything that has to do with it will appear during time. Such as lap times of production cars on known circuits.
Everyone can help to edit this wiki, just leave a message on my message wall.
Note: This wiki contains not specific manufacturers of electric vehicles, race cars, SUVs, pick-ups, vans, trucks and buses.
New: Autosport is an affiliate of this wiki! It contains pages (with news, images, videos) about autosport like F1, WTCC, WEC and much more classes of autosport!

Episode six of “Inside Koenigsegg” is live online today. The Swedish supercar-maker is touting its latest technology for the new One:1, a 3D-printed turbocharger. Company CEO Christian von Koenigsegg explained the new piece at the Geneva motor show. Koenigsegg came up with the idea a few years ago. The housing is big, meaning the turbine can be driven hard without suffering heat damage. Unfortunately, it doesn't spool up quickly. A small turbine housing would cause the opposite problem. The solution turned out to be a two-housing system, with inner and outer chambers. It can spool up quickly, but can also be pushed at high rpm. That turned out to be a problem for traditional casting methods, but not for a 3D printer, which can print complex designs one layer at a time.

The Brand of the Month May is Rolls-Royce!
Rolls-Royce will be celebrating the 110th anniversary of the meeting between its two founders this very weekend, on Sunday, May 4 to be precise. On that day 110 years ago, Charles Rolls and Henry Royce first met and agreed to form the company that would bear their names. Even though the company was established on March 15, 1906, the date of the first meeting between the two founders holds a special place in company lore, and celebrations are set to take place at the Goodwood Motor Circuit in West Sussex, and at The Midland Hotel in Manchester, U.K.
