Aerodynamics Through the Decades
Evolution of Car Aerodynamics
No Aeordynamics in Early Cars
Henry Ford's 1st Model T Had No Aerodynamics... Was More of a Carriage than a Car.
1930's Get Aerodynamic
In 1930 Chrysler Releases the Airflow! This Was One of the First Cars Made with Aerodynamics in Mind.
Racing Influences the Aerodynamic Design
In the 1950's and '60's Car Designs Were Greatly Influenced by the Aerodynamic Design of Race Cars.
This Design Allowed Them to Go Faster and Handle Better at the Higher Speeds.
1980's Launch Aerodynamics
In the 1980's All Car Companies Started Designing Cars With Aerodynamics in Mind.
Cars That Weren't Sports Cars or Luxury Cars Got Aerodynamic too.
Present Day Aerodynamics
Today There Isn't One Car Company that Doesn't Consider the Aerodynamics of a Car When Designing It.
Aerodynamics is a branch of mechanics that has to deal with the motion of wind in relation to an object or medium
Companies Such as Porsche, Lotus, and Citroen Were Some of the Only Companies to Design Cars Focusing on Their Aerodynamics.
However, These Designs Did Not Apply to The Everyday Driver.
Not All Car Companies Use Race Car Method
For a Car to Be Aerodynamic Wind Has to be Able to Pass Over it With Ease.
It Can't be Stopped by Any Part of the Car. It Must Have a Fluent Motion From the Front of the Car to the Back or From Any Part of the Car to the Back.
