You hit on the Orbital site.  That is a good start.  The factory in Michigan
was originally set up by Ford/GM around 1992.  Orbital are an Australian
company.

Look further and you should see the licenses taken up by most of the major
makers: Ford, GM, FIAT (Pininfarina make a prototype sports car with a
running Orbital engine), etc.

All paid Orbital millions for the license, but then decided not to make the
engine themselves, which would have brought in more millions.  They were
apparently frightened that the Japanese would steal a lead on them, as they
were doing heavy r&d on 2-stokes for cars at the time.  Orbital cracked it,
a factory was set up for mass production by Ford/GM, sold licences and then
the Japs did nothing, so then western corporations did nothing.   All super
eager with a proven product and then..........   Sounds very conspiratorial.
You could set up a who killed JFK type of web site on this topic.

You really don't believe it do you?  My dear chap all is true.
