Vector Motors Corporation is an American automobile manufacturer originally based in Wilmington, California. Its history can be traced to Vehicle Design Force, which was founded in 1978 by Gerald Wiegert. Vehicle production by Vector Aeromotive began in 1989 and ceased in 1993. The company was later revived as Vector Motors Corporation, and has continued to develop supercars. When founded, Vector represented America’s first attempt to compete with European performance car manufacturers like Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Lotus. Altogether around 50 Vector supercar models were developed and produced during the 1980s and 1990s including some racing versions mostly built using American made components.
Vector Motors Corporation is an American car producer initially situated in Wilmington, California. Its history could be followed to Vehicle Design Force, which was established in 1978 by Gerald Wiegert. Vehicle handling started in 1989 and stopped in the 1990s. The organization was as of late restored (as Vector Motors Corporation), and is right now creating another supercar. Vector is acknowledged by some as America’s first endeavor to rival European execution auto makers like Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Lotus.About every auto processed by the organization is designated the letter “W” (for Wiegert) and a number. A letter “X” after the W (e.g. WX-8) implies a model unit. The main exemption to this principle is the Megatech-period M12, wherein the “M” remains for Megatech and the 12 implies its V12 motor.
In 1971, Gerald Wiegert, crisp from school, established an outline house called Vehicle Design Force, and collaborated with Lee Brown to make another auto called The Vector. The Vector was said to have different powerplants including a DOHC Porsche motor, and preproduction writing asserted that it might cost Us$10,000 (when another Rolls Royce Silver Shadow cost $11,500). None of these arrangements happened as expected, then again, as Wiegert’s arranged handling run never begun. All that happened to The Vector was a vacant shell that was shown at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Lee Brown left the outline group right away from that point. The Vector was emphasized on the spread of Motor Trend magazine in 1972. Wiegert renamed Vehicle Design Force to Vector Aeromotive after work started on another extend, the Vector W2.
