    I know Alan Jenkins penned the first two Stewart F1 cars, did he also do the Jaguar F1 car?

    • You are correct that Jenkins did the '97 and '98 Stewart Grand Prix cars. He left the team at the end of the '98 season. He did not design the 2000 Jaguar R1.

        So that would be Gary Anderson or John Russell.

          • Super cool. So, will it still sound like a racecar?

            • Good news! Porsche says they are working on a new clean e-fuel, some kind of sythetic gasoline for IC engines. The bad news? It costs $37/gallon ....


              Speaking ahead of the unveiling of the new 911 GT3, he said: "We are on track, together with our partners in South America. For sure, in 2022, it will be very, very small volume for the first trials.

              "It's a long road with huge investment, but we are sure that this is an important part of our global effort to reduce the CO2 impact of the transportation sector."

              Last year, the company announced partnerships with energy firms Siemens Energy, AME and Enel and the Chilean petroleum company ENAP, with the ambition of developing a plant for the commercial production of synthetic fuels, or e-fuels, on an industrial scale. The first stage, called Haru Oni, was set to use southern Chile’s “excellent” wind conditions to produce synthetic fuel with the aid of wind power.

              The plant is set to be in operation by 2022, and will ramp up to producing 55 million litres of synthetic fuel by 2024, and roughly ten times that amount by 2026. Porsche CEO Oliver Blume outlined the motive for the project: “Their advantages lie in their ease of application: e-fuels can be used in combustion engines and plug-in hybrids, and can make use of the existing network of filling stations.”

              • McLaren are also investigating the technology "secretly designed" by Exxon-Mobil. I'm like, what is this an episode of G.I. Joe? How long has Exxon possessed this amazing alchemy?

                  Sounds like the old days of F1. Only I think it was a little more per gallon. They probably measured it in litres.
