Ferdinan Porsche 1898 ,probably spelled wrong
Yes, believe it or not, the first Hybrid was a Porsche! In 1901, the Lohner-Porsche Mixte Hybrid was introduced combining the (then) reliability of electric cars with the increased range of a gas-engined generator

Acually I think it should be Booth Boy as the woods was built by a german in America ,the Porsche was built in Germany ,,from what I understood at the beginning of this thread the questions are suppose to be American cars.

I pass it to booth as I believe he has the correct answer.

The questions have not always been limited to U.S made cars, they just have to be about cars or car parts.

I was looking for the first Hybrid Car - not the first US-made Hybrid. Most folks seem to think Hybrids are a recent phenomenon (think "Prius") but a century ago electrics were far more common than gas-engine cars, and adding a generator to extend the electric car's range was a simple (and somewhat obvious!) concept. There were MANY hybrids 100 years ago, but when the gas engine became more reliable (and the Model T became affordable by everyday people) the attraction of electric power faded quickly

Porsche did it first.

These are original Chevrolet exhaust manifolds (or possibly re pops I'll explain later). What did they come off of? (And SBC isn't the answer!)

I can't wait to see this, I am pretty sure I KNEW this one time, I am pretty sure, but I can't get it to come out of the file cabinet. It seems to be a little car, like a low production sports car or something.

Yes that's the re pop part. I knew that they were going to be reproduced but I could never find out if they had been . Good job on that part but it wasn't the question.
