BMW revealed the 2017 5-Series; we drove the 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman; and we slid behind the wheel of the 2016 Ford Focus RS. It's the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

Ferrari confirmed what we all already knew: The manual transmission is officially dead to the Italian automaker. No future Ferrari will have three pedals, and it all has to do with the performance. While not exactly shocking, it's still a disappointing bit of news. Of course, Lamborghini has confirmed the same bit of news as well.

We slid behind the wheel of the 2016 Ford Focus RS and found it to be all that and a piece of pie. The noises it makes, the speed it carries, and the grip it has all make it the hottest of the hatches.

BMW unveiled the new 2017 5-Series this week., marking the seventh generation of the nameplate. Like the 7-Series before it, the new 5-Series is constructed from aluminum and a bit of carbon fiber in an effort to shed weight.

The new 2017 Porsche 718 Boxster and Cayman have arrived and we took a spin in each. Both are now powered by turbocharged 4-cylinder engines instead of naturally aspirated flat sixes. Do we like the change? You'll have to read our first drive review to find out.

Honda took the wraps of the new 2017 CR-V crossover SUV. With a new design, an optional turbocharged engine, the latest tech, and more space, it should make the competition stand up and notice.
