Devel Sixteen at Dubai Motor ShowEnlarge Photo
We're sure you know all the latest automotive news from this week--because you follow us on social media, of course. What? Seriously? Okay, here's a quick run down as a refresher, but pay attention at the end:
Making headlines this week was the Devel Sixteen supercar with a claimed 5,000 horsepower from a sixteen-cylinder engine. Did we mention the top speed is supposedly 348 mph? Of course, it was revealed in Dubai.
Chrysler made fans longing for the past happy by reviving shaker hoods and Scat Packs this week at SEMA. Yes, the good old days are back, kind of.
Meanwhile, a third Tesla Model S caught fire this week, and no, we still don't think these fires matter, really. In other Tesla news this week, we took a look at whether the Model S would make the perfect police cruiser, and a Model S owner took a high-speed run hitting 132 mph on the autobahn.
And stunning us at SEMA this week was Gene Simmons' insane 1956 Ford F100, named Snakebit. This is what you get in life for being fiscally smart and heavy with the makeup hand.
As we near the November 12th announcement of Motor Authority's Best Car To Buy 2014, we took a look at the nominees including the 2014 Cadillac CTS, 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 2014 Porsche Panamera, 2014 Audi RS 7, 2014 Jaguar F-Type, and 2014 Porsche Cayman.
If somehow all of this is news to you, then you're obviously not following us on social media. Luckily for you, you can catch up next week by keeping an eye on our Instagram feed for newly-posted photos, refresh the Motor Authority Facebook fan page, and chat with us on Twitter--and see what you didn't see here via #Storify.
