(RoyalPatriot.com )- According to a car manufacturer’s claim, Porsches may soon be running on air.
The car manufacturer has used a new synthetic fuel made out of nothing but water and thin air to fill up a 911 for the first time.
The automaker invested in Highly Innovative Fuels, a company that created the eFuel, as insurance against being forced to switch to all-electric vehicles in a world with no carbon emissions.
Automobile-centric reports show the company produces the fuel at a wind-powered facility in Punta Arenas, Chile, which is close to the southernmost tip of South America and has an average of 270 days of wind per year.
The fuel is made by combining hydrogen obtained from water with carbon removed from the atmosphere to produce methane, which is then transformed into a fuel that functions similarly to gasoline.
According to a Porsche spokesman, the 911 used to demonstrate it didn’t need any modifications and could be used with almost any gasoline-powered vehicle.
According to a report, the pilot plant will increase its annual output from 34,342 gallons to 145.3 million gallons by the end of this decade. It currently costs $45 per gallon to produce the fuel, but it will only cost less than $8 per gallon by 2026. Porsche will use it first in special projects, including as fuel for the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup racing series.
That should give the climate alarmists enough time to come up with complaints about the process.
It is a net-zero fuel and might be permitted for widespread use under future emissions regulations because it produces as much carbon dioxide as it consumes in its emissions. Porsche, other sports car manufacturers, and even the Formula One series have been looking into its implementation to maintain the performance and aural entertainment advantages of internal combustion engines in their products.
Stephan Winkelmann, CEO of Lamborghini, recently told the media that his company is also very interested in it. They are investigating and watching to see what the legislature will say in the next few years if there is an opportunity for those types of cars.
