Inspired by: Cordell is inspired by: In the late sixties after arriving home from a long road trip, his three year old daughter greeted him with the indictment, “Daddy your truck smokes! You’re a polluter!” Reasoning because of her statement, the PDT engine concept came to light in the early seventies, with the original goal to reduce emissions, an increase in performance and economy were included with the new engine concept.
In 2002, PDT Engines was incorporated in the State of Minnesota with the intent of marketing and producing his recently patented Positive Displacement Turbine engine design.
The Progressive Automotive X Prize competition “The Little Engine That Can,” team is comprised of individuals, donating there time and energies. Today we are continuing to looking for funding to build prototypes
