Horsepower - Could It Be A Thing Of The Past?
How the Need For Speed Might Change... Like It Or Not
BY IDA GOWNAW
The 1967 Shelby Cobra, the 1969 Chevy Camaro, the 1971 Corvette Stingray, the 1969 Ford Mustang Super Cobra. These timeless beauties have more in common than the fact that they are likely unattainable as vintage assets to the commoner. They are also machines which, by nature of their very essence, are famed for their daunting horsepower.
As we go about our daily lives - waking up, going to work, paying our bills and doing it all over again the next day - the world as we know it changes. No matter how hard we try to deny it, our day-in and day-out commodities will improve (or at least change) as technology dictates. This includes the automotive world, sometimes fortunately, sometimes unfortunately. Part of that change may soon be horsepower. Once considered a base ingredient in any conversation regarding cars, technology and the “new world” may eliminate the term “horsepower” from our vocabulary forever.
