Maserati Grantismo Folgore 2024: the ultimate electric racing car.

The heart of any racing or performance car is its transmission.

Motorsport has always driven the performance of internal combustion engines. Formula E Racing development opens up new ways of power and energy consumption.

Solutions are not always cheap. Large racing budgets and the price of luxury grand tourers can drive any kind of innovation.

The 2024 Maserati Grantismo Folgore uses three engines designed and built by Maserati.

Each rotor contains 100 permanent magnets in the form of complex v-shaped figures.

These are traditional radial flow cylindrical engines rather than pancake style axial flow.

None of them can be disabled, so they always work, and all these magnets make these motors too expensive.

To achieve a low driver’s seat and leg position as in the Grantismo with a Nettuno V-6 engine, which has changed little from the previous model.

Porsche Taycan GTS 2023: new electric car.

Porsche is using a well-established method when it comes to branding the trim levels of its all-electric Taycan models, to the point of using the Turbo and Turbo S names, despite the fact that electric vehicles don’t use turbochargers.

It all just comes down to the semantics of Turbo = powerful and fast, but the traditional idea of what a GTS model should represent translates directly to models like the 2023 Porsche Taycan GTS.

Like other Porsche GTS vehicles, the Taycan GTS sits somewhere between the 4S and Turbo models in terms of power and performance.

Thus, the Taycan, designated GTS, follows the rules of the game, whereby it gets a few components from the turbo menu, as well as its own special darkened appearance.

And as an added bonus, the Taycan GTS sedan continues to be the longest range Taycan in the lineup, with an EPA-calculated range of 395 kilometers on a full charge, along with a combined efficiency figure of 2.8 l/100 km (petrol equivalent).

It’s a marked improvement over most Taycans, but still not quite world class.
