  This endeavor to keep the Internal Combustion Engine alive should be important to every Automotive Enthusiast.  I know the common go to response is that the sound and the smell is part of the experience, but for true enthusiasts, it goes beyond that.  It’s a way of life.

  With Electric Cars you will never know the feeling of being completely in tune with your car.  Yes, they can be quite impressive with their speed but speed isn’t everything.  With Electric Cars all you have is one gear and it’s just press the gas pedal and go and while that’s perfect for the day to day driver, that should not be the only option available to a consumer looking to buy themselves an automobile.

  Driving an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) will give you a thrilling experience that you cannot get anywhere else!  When you step on that gas pedal, you’re shifting through the gears...hearing and feeling the engine for when to shift again, not necessarily having to rely on your RPM gauge.  That’s an experience I think everyone man or woman should have at least the option to experience whether it’s 20 years from now or even 40+ years from now.

  Automotive Industries should by all means continue to develop their Electric Vehicles while also continuing to decrease the emissions released from the production of the batteries, which can be up to 68% higher than their gas counterpart.

  I’m am not saying reduce the restrictions on emissions for Combustion Engines but rather find ways to continue making them more efficient, cleaner and more economically friendly while keeping them as an option.

  Having only one type of automotive option would cause life to stagnant and become bland.  I say we continue developing Internal Combustion Engines along side Electric Vehicles for the consumers who want to enjoy the drive, not just getting from Point A to Point B.

  From the standard 4 Cylinder to the middle ground V6, or the infamous V8... these engines are part of our shared history dating all the way back to 1885.  Karl Benz from Germany designed and built the worlds first practical car driven by an Internal Combustion Engine all the way to Henry Ford who developed the Model T which was the first car mass-produced so that everyone could have a more affordable mode of transportation!  

  So please, add your voice to ours.  Let’s not let their dreams and ambitions end here. Let’s keep the Internal Combustion Engine alive!

An Automotive Enthusiast,

Nolan Scherr
