Chevrolet announced the 2017 Camaro ZL1; We slipped behind the wheel of the 2016 Volvo XC90; and we finally drove the new 2017 Acura NSX. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.

Chevrolet's wasting no time in launching new Camaro variants, and now it's the ZL1's turn. Returning as a 2017 model the new ZL1 has 640 horsepower, an available 10-speed automatic transmission, and massive Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. We'll see the new 2017 Camaro ZL1 next week at the 2016 New York Auto Show.

Our spy photographers caught the updated 2017 Porsche 911 GT3 undergoing track testing. The refresh will be minor and evolutionary, but larger air intakes, a new turn-signal indicator design, and possibly a new set of air curtains are all in the cards.

The legendary Acura NSX is finally back, and after what feels like eons we had our chance to slide behind the wheel. Featuring a hybrid powertrain with supercar-like numbers, this isn't your father's NSX. Has it reasserted its authority in the automotive realm? We found out.

Most of us need a wagon with all-weather traction and a strong dose of safety. We like nice things, too. Volvo thinks it has the perfect answer with the new 2016 XC90. Does its understated elegance let its engineering excellence shine through? We answered that question after some seat time in the T6 model.

While everyone should #GiveAShift there are simply a few things you shouldn't do while driving a vehicle with a manual transmission. This week we learned about five things that are going to cause needless wear and tear on a number of clutch and transmission parts.
