motoriste


Explanation:
constructeur automobile se traduit plutôt par automotive company. Si la sté en question est spécialisée dans les moteurs (motor company) ou si le texte concerne cette spécialité d'un constructeur qui construit des moteurs de motos, bateaux, tondeuses, etc.(comme Honda p. ex.), on dira plutôt motoriste.
