Muscle Car Ebook
Some processors use a lot more juice than others. Do you really need all that speed and power Probably not, although computers have now taken over the role that big muscle cars used to play for macho hard guys. Laptop computers use a lot less power than desktops, so if you can, opt for a laptop.
There was also a new market emerging for the US automobile industry, encouraged and celebrated by popular TV dramas like Route 66, first shown in October 1960 and which featured two young men looking for fun and adventure, driving a Chevrolet Corvette across America. By this time the Baby-Boom generation was coming of age and young men and women of white America were enjoying unprecedented personal wealth and freedom. Looking for a way to capture the hearts and minds of this new youth market, Ford launched its celebrated and racy Ford Mustang in 1966. In the first 18 months, the company sold more than 1 million Mustangs, the fastest car launch in history. Adding further horse-power (and fuel consumption) as the 1960s progressed, the Mustang became the embodiment of the aptly named 'muscle car'.
Now, the G-Wiz sits at one end of the performance spectrum. What if we demand more - more acceleration, more speed, and more range At the other end of the spectrum is the Tesla Roadster. The Tesla Roadster 2008 has a range of 220 miles (354 km) its lithium-ion battery pack stores 53 kWh and weighs 450kg (120Wh kg). The vehicle weighs 1220 kg and its motor's maximum power is 185kW. What is the energy-consumption of this muscle car Remarkably, it's better than the G-Wiz 15 kWh per 100 km. Evidence that a range of 354 km should be enough for most people most of the time comes from the fact that only 8.3 of commuters travel more than 30 km to their workplace.
