While turbine engines are common in military tanks, helicopters and jet airliners, their use in production automobiles has been quite limited. Ford did however dedicate approximately two decades of research beginning in the 1950s to making that a possibility. What was possibly the largest example of the company’s efforts was “Big Red,” a 600-horsepower super transport prototype built in 1964. (Courtesy of Ford Motor Company)
