Someone spent $9 million on a license plate; we spied the 2018 Porsche Cayenne; and things are ramping up as we near the 2016 Los Angeles auto show. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.

Another eight supercars belonging to the son of Equatorial Guinea’s dictatorial leader Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo have been seized by the authorities in Switzerland. This followed the first seizure of 11 supercars in Paris just last week.

We spied the 2018 Porsche Cayenne undergoing testing on the Nürburgring. Seen in prototype form, it's clear the new Cayenne will feature a sleeker look dominated by a longer, flatter roof. Expect weight savings over the current model and an interior similar to that of the new Panamera.

If you have $200,000 burning a hole in your pocket then boy do we have a comparison for you: it's the Acura NSX vs. the Audi R8, and only one can be the winner in this supercar showdown.

Remember the guy who spent $6.7 million on a license plate? He's back, and now he just spent $9 million on another license plate.

Next week we'll witness more than 20 world debuts at the 2016 Los Angeles auto show. We'll be there to report on the reveals from brands such as Alfa Romeo, Chevrolet, Jeep, Mazda, Mini, Subaru, and Volkswagen.
