Lingenfelter Performance CEO: Auto Market Prefers Superchargers To Turbo
Ken Lingenfelter, owner, president, and CEO of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering recently discussed the state of the auto industry with Robb Report’s Katrina Szish. The businessman first went into the story of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
The company was founded 43 years ago by Ken Lingenfelter’s late cousin John Lingenfelter, a famous drag and road racer. “We are doing the best we can to live up John’s legacy and continue to build performance cars,” he explained.
What’s Coming Up
Lingenfelter was then asked about the trends that we are likely to see in the performance aftermarket.
“There used to be a big effort put towards twin turbo cars and things of that nature,” the businessman explained. However, nowadays, the industry is more focused on superchargers, he continued.
Readers should note that Lingenfelter Performance Engineering only works on General Motors Company (NYSE: GM) cars, and thus, the Corvette has been its biggest product over time.
“Our customers never seem to get enough horsepower [and] we are glad to provide that for them,” Lingenfelter remarked.
