First drive, Montenegro, April 2016
We drove the 2017 Jaguar F-Pace crossover SUV; rumors of a new mid-engine Porsche 960 supercar resurfaced; and Acura celebrated its birthday with a new ad. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.
Jaguar's about to launch its first-ever SUV. Hailed as the brand's most practical sports car yet, the F-Pace crossover SUV will square up with the Porsche Macan and Audi Q5 for shopper's attention. We finally had a chance to slide behind the wheel of the F-Pace in Montenegro to find out if it has the dynamics to best the competition.
McLaren's selling a 1998 F1 with only 2,800 miles on the odometer. It's been cared for over the years by McLaren's heritage department. The last F1 we saw hit the market fetched $13.75 million, but given this car's condition, miles, and history, it could easily top that sum.
We went to school this week to learn how turbocharger wastegates work from Jason Fenske at Engineering Explained.
Porsche's possible plans for the mid-engine 960 supercar are back in the spotlight. Set to potentially fill the gap between the top 911 variants and the 918 Spyder hypercar, the 960 could be considered a successor to the legendary 959 supercar. Word has it the 960 will arrive in 2019.
Acura turns 30 this year and Honda's luxury brand created an ad to celebrate. Peppered with highlights from the brand's history, the ad features cars like the original NSX, the Integra Type R, and the new NSX. Clearly geared toward enthusiasts, one has to wonder if it simply shows how Acura became lost and confused over the years.
