Innovation of the Year: The OPOC Two-Stroke Engine

Internal-combustion engines as we know them were born in 1876 — the year this nation turned one hundred. They’ve gotten bigger and more powerful in the ensuing 130-odd years, but the basic design has remained the same. Until now. Until this briefcase arrived.

Inside this briefcase is the prototype engine that EcoMotors CEO Don Runkle hauls around America. When he arrives for a client meeting, he clicks open the case and shows off his company’s invention: a forty-pound motor that generates up to ten thousand kilowatts of energy. That’s enough to power a home, on a fraction of the fuel that a typical engine would need. Enough to convince many executives that the Engine That Changes Everything may have finally arrived.

Where typical engines have one piston per cylinder, hammering up and down like a fist against a ceiling, the OPOC — which was designed by a former chief powertrain engineer at Volkswagen — has two pistons per cylinder that come together and pull apart like hands clapping. The pistons travel only half as far, meaning they can complete a cycle twice as fast, which lets OPOC generate twice the power of an equivalent standard engine — the same power in a package half the size. Further innovations in fuel delivery and exhaust and the innate efficiency advantages of the two-stroke cycle mean the system offers, conservatively, 50 percent reduction in fuel usage with no reduction in power, no increase in emissions, weight savings of 50 percent, and cost savings of 20 percent.

Aviation company Eurocopter is pursuing a diesel version that would be the most fuel-efficient helicopter engine ever. And Runkle and EcoMotors are aiming to have a vehicular OPOC ready for commercial production by 2013. It’s an audacious goal, but one they’ve gotten help with: In July, seeing the potential for OPOC to change the world (and be a successful business), Bill Gates and Khosla Ventures gave $23.5 million to support final engineering. —Tim Heffernan

Best family cars

Decide which is the best family car to buy with our helpful list of the top models on sale

Finding the best family car for you is getting harder these days – there are now more choices than ever. Saloons used to be the staple family car, but now buyers are choosing so many different types of car for families – SUVs, hatchbacks, crossovers, MPVs and estates.

The Nissan Qashqai is the best example: it’s a big seller in the UK thanks to its practical crossover body style, but it’s nowhere near as thirsty as a 4×4 like a Land Rover Discovery Sport  and is much more like a hatchback when it comes to running costs.

Large MPVs are there for those who need up to seven seats, or just a huge amount of boot space. They’re perfect for family holidays or trips to the beach during summer.

If the driver is looking for something good to drive without missing out on practicality, there are some great options to go for – the Mazda 6 is a favourite of ours, with great handling and plenty of interior space.

Many family cars are available in a wide range of specifications, some with very little equipment, so make sure you look carefully at the trim levels and choose the one that suits you best. You might decide you don’t need a high-spec trim, but useful features like Bluetooth connectivity and folding rear seats might be worth the extra money for a mid-spec car.

Of course, company car tax will cost extra if you add optional extras, so if that applies to you then go for a model with plenty of standard kit.

Do also be aware, as with all cars, that the manufacturer-quoted economy figures are often for guidance only. For example, if one car gets a claimed 50mpg and the other gets 60mpg, you can expect the second car to be more economical, even if neither car matches those figures in the real world.

Best Car Brands – Top Ten List.

#best cars

Best Car Brands

The Top TenX W

Love the new BMW X1 in brown color (as it can be seen on webpage). Many people think it’s too expensive but for such a great car the price is OK.

BMW is best in class-Luxury car manufacturer in the world. It stick to its motto of the ultimate driving machine and it will continue to deliver its goods to driving enthusiasts around the world. I am in the process to purchase my first, and hope to become a BMW loyalist for life.

Yes BMW is the purest brand of all the bunch. Most of them are not real brands and are affected by belonging to a larger dominating source (VW) (GM) These sub-brands are a mixture of parts, mixed and then called a name. BMW and Mercedes and Toyota are truly original to their product.

Yay! It is my favourite!

Mercedes-Benz is a division of its parent company, Daimler AG. Mercedes-Benz traces its origins to Karl Benz’s creation of the first petrol-powered car THAT IS THE RESON WHY I VOTE MERCEDES. MERCEDES IS THE BEST FROM ALONG TIME. MERCEDES CREATED IT FIRST Car before bmw by 48 years

1. They put a minimum of 8 coats of paint on the car.

2. It is the only car in the world whose seat back won’t break during most crashes.

3. Driving a Mercedes, even an older Mercedes means class. Period. No debate. You cannot say that with other cars.

4. They really do last and last. Mercedes even has a million mile club. These cars are built to last. The current high-mileage champion is Gregorios Sachinidis, a Greek taxi driver who holds the known record of more than 2.8

Million miles in his 1976 Mercedes-Benz.

to be honest guys. Д±f you like the X brand it is not best brand. if you want to know best brand, you should search the history of brand what they happenned, qualty searching which one is followed. Д± searched something and finally, Д± decided best brand is mercedes also they say that THE BEST OR NOTHING. no more need comment. the first outomobil, first motorcycle etc.

Lewis hamilton makes this car the best

People always say that Ferrari is perhaps the greatest car maker in the world. I’d like to ask them have they heard of a company called-LAMBORGHINI. If you have then you wouldn’t say that Ferrari is the best.

Lamborghini cars looks awesome. There Design is very aerodynamic and the engine sound is really nice. To me, Lamborghini is the best auto makers in the world.

An amazing car brand! I would call it prodigious, marvelous, stunning. No words for it! Love its sound! Its addictive! Its doors amazingly opens upward! What a sleek, aerodynamic design! No words for it!

When I was skid I used to say Ferrari is cool but after I saw a Lamborghini I changed my mind the next second

Most beautiful cars, both interior and exterior. Perfect balance of sportiness and comfort. The only con is the motor oil consumption.

Best line up of cars, amazing engines, something for everyone

Those grills make me ecstatic!

They are comparatively cheaper and does give the goods!

I love this car. best car body shape

Ferrari is the best car ever. It run very fast. Throughout its history, the company has been noted for its continued participation in racing, especially in Formula One, where it has had great success.

Most prestigious make in the world. No brand has more history and tradition and passion as Ferrari. Their cars feel handmade. I would know my family has 9 :L

Whoa one of the best companies that have emerged ever in the history of cars. It is a revolution in technology

Awesome best cars ever

The best cars in the universe!

Completely premium German quality.

Nobody is in its way – owenpoon

Style and substance, wins at racing and wins in usable performance with enough practicality (and serious race-bred reliability) to make something special work every day. That is the magic of Porsche that other luxury brands envy and aspiring brands can’t even touch.

The best car brand for me. It has an elegant style yet it packs enough horsepower to make a lot of cars eat dust. Expensive yet attainable.

This is definitely NO.4 at the least

Ford has anything from 10,000 dollar hybrids, to 140,000 dollar super cars! Just look at the GT! Amazing at everything!

If you take in all models that a company makes I say Ford has the number 1 spot. All the high price cars listed come from companies that has problems with other cars. In the past European cars were known for quality cars but with the push for bling cars they have lost that edge, same for the Japan cars. For the average car buyer Ford has the largest offerings with good quality.

Ford is the company that started the whole automobile craze in North America after Karl Benz invented the gas powered automobile in Germany. Come on guys, Ford also started the 40hr/5d work week and the assembly line. For crying out loud Ford made the damn Mustang!

Fords are very reliable and you can always find the car you want.

Toyota is more popular and has better customer support. Most other websites have Toyota as number 1 or two. I certainly agree with other websites. I own a Toyota RAV4 and also think it has a great engine.

This car should be first because it have the best selling car of all time (Toyota Corolla) I have an ae86 corolla wich is the best drift car of all time also

Best Brand

Its a user review. Japanese technology best technology.

I have toyota etios livaa

Volkswagen Golf anyone. A Fuel Efficient CAR that’s loaded with German Engineering.

And with Golf GTI that beats any hatchback/compact out there, you’re good to go!

Shoot I’m gonna get me a vw bus one of these days. Kicking it old school man – the-rate-it-guy








Honda make the best cars for the masses by far. Much better than any German brands. I don’t see any Porsche, Lamborghini, and Ferrari cars on my neighbours drives at all. These cars should be removed from this list.

Honda was innovating when the Big 3 American Auto makers were whining about not being able to make the EPA standards in time. Honda redesigned the engine instead of attaching multiple add-on to the engine. So far Ford is the only who is getting it, and getting it right and gaining fast on the Japanese auto makers. – mgenet

Best car of the Honda is Honda city my favorite

Where are the Best Car Deals 2015?

Until the last few years, the best way to get a great car deal was to work hard for it by haggling with stubborn dealer salespeople. With plenty of luck, careful preparation,  and a heap of negotiating skill, you might get a good deal.

You would increase your chances of getting a good deal if you knew the best time of day/month/year to buy, knew dealer invoice prices and holdbacks, and had good bargaining savvy— and possessed the stamina for long stressful haggling sessions with dealer salespeople who would try every trick in the book to wear you down — not a pleasant experience for many people. Most people hate it and don t look forward to it.

It s not that haggling still isn t necessary. It is in many cases. But the best car deals don t happen that way anymore. Things have changed. The best deals are actually given to you — without hagglingby major car companies in partnership with their dealers.

Car manufacturers, in these challenging economic times, are hungry for your business and are willing to offer ready-made deals that were offered much less frequently in the past. These are deals that buyers could not possibly negotiate for themselves — because dealers are not capable of making the kind of concessions that their deep-pockets parent car companies can make. You could haggle with a car dealer all day and all night and he still wouldn t be able to give you large price discounts, rebates, bonuses, 0% APR loans, or give you special subsidized leases, if he didn t have help from his parent car company.

True Car Dealer Cost and Calculating Your Offer

#price of used cars

True Dealer’s Cost and Making Your Offer

Last Modified: November 08, 2015 by Jeff Ostroff | Originally Published February 26, 2000 will show you how to figure out how much the dealer paid for the car. To help do this, we will make use of some great free sites. I have also created a free Offer Spreadsheet that will calculate a fair offer for both you and the dealership. Once you fill it out you’ll be able to use it during your negotiations.

How Much is Fair to Offer the Dealer?

In order to calculate your offer, the first thing you have to do is find out how much they paid for the car. Then you will be able to offer them a deal that gives them a fair profit.

Don’t just make up a number for the offer, make an educated offer based on the dealer’s actual cost. It will take some time and research so you must be patient.

At the dealership, one of the first things you should do is ask them to show you the factory invoice for the car. If they refuse your request, I will show you how you can get the information online.

Your Offer Should Be 3% – 5% Over Actual Cost

To be fair for both sides, you should make an offer of 3% – 5% over the actual dealer’s cost, not above the invoice price. Dealerships will gladly accept a 5% profit. In fact, many dealers survive on 3%. I have done extensive research with auto industry insiders and have verified this to be true.
