In the not too distant future, the vast majority of new vehicles sold will be electric, hybrids, or hydrogen-powered. However, Porsche is investigating ways to keep ICE-powered cars on the road by using advanced synthetic fuels.

The German car manufacturer first announced its plans to research synthetic fuels back in September and has since revealed that it already has a pilot program involving various classic Porsche models that are using synthetic fuels.

During a recent interview with Hagerty, Porsche chief executive Oliver Blume said that ICE vehicles will continue to be driven in the future.

“We believe that synthetic fuels produced with 100% renewable energy have the potential to be an important element [in the future],” Blume explained. “For this reason, we are conducting research and development activities. 70% of the cars we have ever built are still on the road, and for many years to come there will be cars powered by combustion engines.”

The synthetic fuel being developed by Porsche is made by producing hydrogen and combining it with carbon captured from the air to create methanol, which is then transformed into a gasoline substitute to power cars. Porsche is looking to make this synthetic fuel in factories powered by wind and solar energy.

The main problem that needs to be overcome is price.

“The only problem we still have is price, which is still higher than 10 dollars per liter,” Blume revealed. Porsche is working to bring this down to less than $2 per liter to ensure it’s not much more expensive than petrol or diesel.

“We already have a pilot [program] running historic 911s, from the 993 series, with very good results. We’re also looking for partners. They’ll take care of the technology, and at the end they’ll produce the fuel. Our task will be to find the right specifications so that these fuels will be able to run in our combustion engines,” Porsche’s boss added.

Blume admits that there is still a long way to go to perfect synthetic fuels but believes it could be available to the public in about 10 years.

2017 年日內瓦車展中,Volkswagen 帶來全新跑房車 Arteon,其車款與先前停產的 CC 屬於同樣定位,但德國車廠設定更高的目標,定位與 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé及 Audi A5 相同,不過考慮到品牌定位,實際對應的同級距則為 Kia Stinger。

架構在 MQB 底盤的 Arteon 擁有 Volkswagen 新世代面貌的車頭,從水箱罩延伸出的兩道鍍鉻飾條,延伸進 LED 頭燈當中,讓水箱罩與新式頭燈巧妙的融合在一起,於大燈內上斜的鍍鉻飾條讓大燈位置略高,為新車帶來更寬廣的視覺感受,而寬扁的大面積引擎蓋設計則清晰的展現出其運動化的特質。無框側窗的整體設計,搭配斜背的精細的動感線條與最大 20 吋輪框讓這輛中大型轎車帶來鮮明的運動感受。

頭尾燈皆標配 LED 燈組,後方向燈擁有動態指示功能。

在 2020 年 6 月 Volkswagen 為 Arteon 車系推出小改款新車,同時帶來了全新的 Arteon Shooting Brake,車頭至 B 柱完全相同, B 柱之後沒有如 Arteon 較斜的線條下削,而是延伸到 C 柱之後增加車內空間,較斜的 D 柱仍呈現出跑格的樣貌。

Fisker, the American start-up led by engineer and entrepreneur Henrik Fisker, has announced that it plans to enter the UK market in 2023.

The car manufacturer intends on opening a consumer experience center in London in 2022 to allow potential buyers to check out the Ocean electric SUV up close. Fisker has also announced a partnership with Cox Automotive and Rivus Fleet Solutions to provide vehicle servicing, maintenance, deliveries, fleet management, valuations and reselling in the UK.

“In creating Fisker as a company focused on both product and owner experience breakthroughs, partnerships with the world’s leading service providers are an essential element to deliver that vision,” Henrik Fisker said. “With recent UK government announcements related to electric vehicles, we believe Fisker will be well placed and well-timed to make significant progress in this important market.”

The Ocean will be built by Magna Automotive in Europe and the British market will be “one of the first” outside the U.S. where it will be sold, shortly after its launch in Q4 2022. In October, the car manufacturer announced its European headquarters will be located in Munich, Germany and will also open a consumer experience center in Munich in Q4 2021.

Fisker has managed to keep key technical specifications about the Ocean under wraps, but has confirmed it will be offered in rear- and four-wheel drive configurations. The standard four-wheel drive model should pump out over 302 hp while a flagship variant with even more grunt will sprint to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than three seconds.

U.S. pricing for the Fisker Ocean will start at $37,499 before incentives.
