Ford Model T
Five years later, Ford introduced the Model T, the car that would revolutionize America and seed tile inventor's success. A 20- horsepower, 4-cylinder car featuring a semiautomatic transmission, the Ford Model T was by far the most convenient and affordable mass market automobile. Sturdy, reliable and fast, the car proved ideal for farmers and urbanites alike. The basic model was precisely that basic Speedometer, windshield wipers and side doors were "optional" features. Model T owners were, therefore, free to personalize their vehicles to their liking. The car created an immediate sensation, selling more than 10,000 in 1909 alone. To keep up with demand, in 1913 Ford implemented the assembly-line system, a technique that would redefine the modern world's industrial landscape. Production rose from 78,440 units in 1912 to 300,000 in 1914. The innovative method of mass production enabled workers to assemble Model Ts in a fraction of tile time required previously, ultimately making cars even more affordable to middle-class consumers.
