Default Re: Quiz Question of the week (2/5/17)

The others won't help here.

I'm pretty sure Ferdinand Porsche had no involvement in the engine of the 2CV. The original water cooled engine was designed before the war by Maurice Sainturat. After the war, Walter Becchia redesigned the engine to be made from light alloy and be air cooled. Ferdinand Porsche would have been in Prison at that time so wasn't involved.

The double helical gears that Andre Citroen purchased the patent for are not relevant to the design of the Traction Gearbox.
