electric engines (I suppose that's motors...)? No, they usually either hum or scream. I like the ones that hum - but that's irrelevant to the puzzle =)
internal combustion at all? Yes.
other alternative energy source? No.

do We have a bewildering number of cylinders? like a purring twelve-cylinder engine?
I suppose I should ask specifically: are We motorcycles? scooters? autos? trucks? planes?

where I live, many float planes fly overhead to the other islands in my archipelago, or on to Alaska -- DeHavilland Beavers, mostly, with throbbing radial engines -- and while some might say they roar, I have such a soft spot for them they sound mellifluous to me!

***SPOILER***
Our jump plane at the skydiving club is a turboprop, while the airplane club next door flies piston planes. I much enjoy the high pitched singing of turbines over the unmuffled roar of the piston engines. I also find turbines to be much more elegant contraptions.

thanks; nice puzzle.
I'm not aviation-oriented, other than my fondness for those float planes. They're loud, I suppose you could say they roar, but like the purring of a large, soft cat. At least, they sound that way to me.
And I appreciate the nature of the radial engine, as well.
But clearly, they don't sing as well as the ones you describe -- more of a basso profundo, if anything, compared to your plane's tenor, perhaps?

I love aviation -- mostly military, though. I had an idea about this one from the start. Good to see I was right. Great puzzle!
