What is our vision?

You want to learn about cars, but all the other websites just make you feel stupid? They talk down to you, use jargon you don't understand, or are just trying to sell you something. Our hptorque.net is different. We write in a way that's easy to understand and actionable. Plus, we're not incentivized to have an opinion- we're just here to help you out.

If you want to know how fast a car will accelerate, the horsepower and torque are not enough. The best way to measure acceleration is by looking at the power-to-weight ratio. This number tells you how much power it takes for one kilogram of weight (2.2 pounds) to move one meter per second squared (1 mph).

A car with a high power-to-weight ratio will have an easier time accelerating than a heavy vehicle with low horsepower or torque numbers. For example, if your car weighs 1,000 kilograms and has 400 horsepower, then its power-to-weight ratio would be 2 kg/hp - which is very good!

So, our team here will help you to understand all the said above and prepare you to ask the right questions, and make an informed decision when you start your car search. The only thing you will need to check out is all the needed data - is put the make. model and year of the car.

Hello, guys!

My name is Harlan and I am the founder of hptorque.net. My entire family has their own car, so it was important for me to create a website where people can access such specs as torque and hp ratings. You will be able to find all this information on hptorque.net, but also other facts about the car because if you are buying a used car, for example, it's important to learn about its history.

I love hiking and some other extreme sports, but my family comes first for me! My wife and two kids are what make life worth living.
