Can 3D-Printed Car Beat Porsche’s Speed Record?
The fastest accelerating car in the world is the Porsche 918 Spyder, which can go 0-60 mph in 2.2 seconds. An extremely bold San Francisco startup thinks it can beat that … with 3D printing.
Divergent Microfactories’ 3D-printed supercar, the Blade, uses 3D-printed aluminium joints connected to carbon-fiber tubes to create the frame for the chassis. The company claims a 0-60 mph time of “around” 2 seconds and a weight of 1,400 pounds.
