RUSH Auto Works Inc.

RUSH Auto Works Inc., was founded late 2017 to develop, market and produce affordable, high performance race and track-day cars. The company ethos is simply that, every vehicle we build will be a rush to drive, Guaranteed!

Beyond this we have a vision that high performance motorsport has reached such stratospheric pricing that the normal man simply can’t afford to get in. Our first car the RUSH SR-1 has been designed from the ground up to address that issue. It provides an affordable platform and yet exudes technology and performance typically found in vehicles costing three to ten times as much.

Company founder, David Hosie, has applied his 35 years of product design, manufacturing and development knowledge to the design of the car to allow volume manufacturing of the car at a cost, permitting the car to be sold at a highly competitive price point. The design has been optimized for production, reliability and longevity to not only keep the cost of the car down but to ensure that our customers also enjoy an operating cost significantly below that of our primary competition.

David also serves as the Technical Director for Production Technology and Services Inc, a Houston based Oil and Gas service company and also runs the PTS Technology Center. This is a state of the art O&G R&D facility having advanced CNC manufacturing and CMM inspection and test equipment. The RUSH Auto Works facility is in a 10,000 sqft unit within the PTS Technology Center and has access to the PTS facilities for advanced manufacturing.

While the chassis and mechanical system design is led by David our product line vision is the creation of our Chief Designer and Stylist, Michael Young. Michael is responsible for the conceptual styling of the SR-1, the GT-R, GT-S and our other powersport products currently under conceptual development. Michael’s work in the past has included design and styling projects for Sector 111, Palatov Motorsport and Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus! The design essence of our entire range of cars incorporates a modern “GT Prototype” style consistent with the direction being taken by the WEC for future prototype, endurance race cars.
