We rode shotgun in the 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo, learned that the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will have more power than originally thought, and heard the story of a track enthusiast in a 2016 Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] Mustang Shelby GT350 losing his brakes at 100 mph. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.

Porsche’s new Panamera sedan is due on the market early next year. We haven’t driven the car yet but we were able to ride shotgun while a Porsche test driver flung it around a race track. How does it handle track conditions? Find out in our first ride post.

Chevrolet’s Camaro ZL1 based on the sixth generation of the iconic muscle car is close to reaching showrooms. An order guide surfaced and revealed that the car will be getting more power than the originally stated 640-horsepower figure.

We compiled a list of eight things we hate about eight cars we love. Some of those cars include the Alfa Romeo 4C, Chevrolet Corvette and Tesla Motors [NSDQ:TSLA] Model S.

The owner of a 2016 Shelby GT350 posted a harrowing story of a track day that saw his car burst into flames and lose all braking power at 100 mph. Fortunately he made it out okay. His car, however, was ruined. It’s due to be replaced by a Shelby GT350R in the near future.

Remember those Chinese folks that planned to build a bus that rides on rails and capable of gliding above traffic? Well, they went out and built the thing and this week started some real-world tests. It has to be seen to be believed.
