The Ford Model C is a version of the first Ford Model A with more modern look. It has a slightly more powerful engine and 15 cm (6 inches) longer wheelbase. It was the entry-level car in the Ford model lineup, slotting below the upscale Model B. Production ended in 1905 with 800 cars made. The Model C was replaced by the derivative Model F in 1905.
Both Models A and C were produced at the same time, but the Model A could also be bought with a Model C engine, an option called Ford Model AC. The Model C engine is a flat-2 giving 8 hp (6 kW) at first and 10 hp (7 kW) by 1905 with a claimed top speed of 38mph.

When mine started making an odd popping sound and emitting an electrical smell during use, I unplugged it, went to the closest store known to sell microwave ovens, bought a new one, plugged it in, and then continued heating up leftovers for lunch. Cars eventually die and require replacement. People don’t buy cars like they buy microwave ovens. You never wake up, decide to buy a new car, walk into a dealership showroom, swipe a credit or debit card, and drive away in less than an hour. In recent years, the company’s New Autoshopper Study has found that about 80 percent of car buyers use the Internet to research new vehicle purchases, spend an average of 14 hours doing so, and take an average of four months to make a decision... As a person who has purchased several new cars, this makes sense. Choosing a new vehicle is not the same as choosing a new microwave.
Alphr says the Model 3 will be the "most important car Tesla will make", representing its transition to mass market as well as its huge investment, which includes creating its new gigafactory. Powertrain and performance According to Auto Express , the top spec Model 3 could have a level of performance on par with the BMW M3 and M4, making use of the huge torque electric motors can provide to give 0-62mph in a time rivalling the 4. 1sec... It may not get the Tesla Model S P90D's 90kWh battery, but years of battery development means whatever powers the Model 3 should provide enough poke to make it a handful for its rivals. Being an entry level model, though, the Model 3's range could be shorter than that of Tesla's other cars.
