Peter Machinis, on Manufacturing Prosperous Cars
An automobile enthusiast since his elementary school years, Peter Machinis has been a loyal follower of the vehicle class deemed the supercar.
“No, it’s not a sports car…it’s a supercar,” Peter Machinis gushes as he leans up against a 2020 Bentley Continental GT.
The comparison between a sports car and a supercar might not be readily apparent to the casual car enthusiast but the difference is much more noticeable when comparing the two side-by-side in person.
While a sports car might be able to rev it’s engine swiftly around the track, it isn’t until you hear the powerful engine of that supercar that you can genuinely understand what true speed can do.
Different from sports cars, supercars are quite rare vehicles that are made in extremely low quantities, costing at least $100,000.
“The top layer for auto manufacturers are supercars,” Peter Machinis shares when explaining his ideas of how car manufacturers can succeed in 2020.
“Many of these cars have been outfitted with IoT and machine learning capabilities,” Peter Machinis mentions.
So far this forecast has come true as several manufacturers from Tesla to Ford have started adding IoT abilities as well as AI compatibility into their cars using smartphone accessibility.
Another movement that is quickly becoming common knowledge as concerns rise with global warming is customer desire for sustainable automobiles.
With Tesla leading the charge in this category (no pun intended), Peter Machinis considers this a major consideration that will encourage the move towards sustainability in automaker manufacturing strategies.
“We are seeing top supercar players like Nissan and Toyota showcasing their ESFLOW and MOB and that should trickle down.”
Peter points out, mentioning how top vehicle manufacturers are adding sustainable and electric functions to their model supercars.
Peter Machinis, no newcomer to the manufacturing game himself, is interested to see how it will unfold in the future.
“With global warming as a constant factor on the mind of the average consumer, it will be interesting to see how this affects manufacturer protocols.”
Peter Machinis shares while admiring Tesla’s Model S Alpha.
If Peter Machinis‘ predictions come to fruition, sustainability and the Internet of Things will be the major players that will bring success for vehicle manufacturers in 2020.
Only time will tell if these forecasts will actually happen for major manufacturers around the globe.
