General Motors Co. says it's begun construction of a facility for race engine design and development in suburban Detroit.

The Detroit-based automaker says the work started Wednesday on the site in Pontiac. The company says it also includes an electric motor laboratory and gear center.

GM says about 100 people will work at the facility, which should open by mid-2015 and be completed by early 2016.

Can't have enough R&D. The existing automotive technology needs to be updated.

One hundred jobs in car country is good. There are too many unemployed workers with automotive skills in the Detroit area.
