WIKISPEED grew out of Joe Justice's passion for cars, and the Automotive X Prize competition.The WIKISPEED 100 mpg car project :- is an Open Source design- is a Modular vehicle (it's a car right now, but variations are possible)- car that can be built without specialized equipment- is light weight- does not specify the drive train. That is a module, and it can be switched. There is an existing Gas motor module that uses a Honda R18a motor and automatic transmission from a 2006 - 2011 Honda Civic, a prototype DC Electric motor module that uses a Netgain Motor and a Honda Manual transmission, a proposed AC Electric motor module that uses a Siemens motor, an Open Source Controller, and a Honda Manual transmission, a proposed diesel motor module, a prototype hybrid module - Diesel/electric I think?- is run by volunteers- is organized using Agile, Lean and Scrum tools and methods, using what Joe has coined eXtreme Manufacturing or XM.
