Their vision was to create a high-speed diesel engine that could challenge gasoline as the primary motive power. The same year that the company was founded, their first high-speed diesel engine debuted – the Perkins four cylinder Vixen. By 1935 Perkins became the first company to hold six world records for diesel speed at a variety of distances. Their popularity continued and by the end of World War II, Perkins had two successful series of engines, the P4 and P6, and they went public and began establishing licensees for local manufacture and sale.
