Porsche 959 or Ferrari F40?

These are definitely 2 cars I would like to own.  I saw a 959 at the new car show in England back in the 80’s.  At that time is was called the most technically advanced car of the time.

Engines drive your vehicle, not a motor!

So, some not so common information.  An engine is a fuel driven mechanical device, size and fuel type don’t really matter, models use very small engines, trucks and equipment use much larger engines.  A motor, is an electrical winding, yes most vehicles have motors, but, usually not for drive.  Most motors on a vehicle would be a starter or an alternator, or generator, or even the heater fan drive motor.  Even if your vehicle uses a motor for power to the wheels, it is still a motor, and not an engine.

 

This is an ENGINE, not a motor!

So, your vehicle, no longer exclusively, but, in most cases, does not run on a motor, it runs on an engine!
