Twin Cities auto showrooms once were as beautiful as the cars

dul sanchez

There was time long ago when buying a new car in the Twin Cities could be a surprisingly beautiful experience. As automobiles became big business in the early decades of the 20th century, the first dealerships with showrooms appeared in the Twin Cities, and some were quite stunning.

These early dealerships, which typically included a service garage, were generally at or near the edges of downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul. Quite a few still stand and have been repurposed for new uses, particularly along Grand Avenue in St. Paul and in the Harmon Place Historic District in Minneapolis.

That district’s gem, the Fawkes Building (now Loring Corners) at 1624 Harmon Place, was the first big auto showroom in the city when it opened in 1911.

But most first-generation dealerships are long gone, demolished for progress of one form or another. Unlike the sprawling suburban dealerships of today, the early showrooms

Tesla has pioneered new approaches in manufacturing, designs in software and electronic architecture which enable it to introduce innovations faster than rivals, leaving analysts to draw comparisons with Apple.

Tesla Inc’s rapid rise to become the world’s most valuable carmaker could mark the start of a new era for the global auto industry, defined by a Silicon Valley approach to software that is overtaking old-school manufacturing know-how.

Tesla’s ascent took many investors by surprise. But executives at Daimler AG, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, had a close-up view starting in 2009 of how Tesla and its chief executive Elon Musk were taking a new approach to building vehicles that challenged the established system.

Daimler, which bears the name of the man who invented the modern car 134 years ago, bought a nearly 10% Tesla stake in May 2009 in a deal which provided a $50 million lifeline

What does an auto engineer do?

What does an auto engineer do?

The challenges facing personal mobility are endless. Automotive engineers work in every area of the industry, such as the look and feel of vehicles, and the safety and security of new forms of transport. While there is, of course, a focus to make cars reach high speeds, the modern day engineer needs to consider future sustainability and wider integration of advancing connected technologies. 

The work of an automotive engineer breaks down into three categories:

  • Design
  • Research and Development
  • Production

So what does an automotive engineer really do?

They study

One of the first steps in becoming an automotive engineer is going to university. Most automotive engineers start out by studying Mechanical Engineering, but increasingly more specific Automotive Engineering degrees are becoming available.

The automotive industry is truly international, and studying abroad might be your way into this popular job market. For a growing list

condition just like a painting protected in a museum. This WebCars!

Auto industry: China is giving cash to car buyers to revive sales crushed by coronavirus

dul sanchez

Car sales declined 42% in the first quarter of 2020 compared to last year, according to data released late last week by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM). While that is largely because of a whopping 79% plunge in February — when the country of 1.4 billion people recorded just 310,000 sales — the market remains very weak. Only 1.43 million vehicles were sold in China last month, a 43% decline over March 2019.

The auto industry plays a crucial role in China’s economy. More than 40 million people in the country rely on the sector for jobs, either directly or indirectly. The industry generates more than $1 trillion in revenue each year, roughly 10% of China’s manufacturing output.

A healthy Chinese car market is also important to the rest of the world. Global automakers like Volkswagen (VLKAF) and General Motors (GM) sell millions of
