  • 2017 Ford GT originally commissioned by John Cena - Image via Mecum Auctions

    It seems no one wants to keep this Liquid Blue 2017 Ford GT. First bought by pro wrestler-turned-actor John Cena, the GT first changed hands in August of 2017. Ford immediately sued Cena for breaking the legal agreement each GT buyer signs stating they won't sell (i.e. flip) their car for two years after purchase. The two parties reached an agreement in July 2018. The car has had two more owners since then. Now on the hunt for its fifth owner, the low-slung supercar is headed to the block at Mecum's Indy 2019 auction on May 18. In January, Mecum came to an agreement with Ford to not accept...

    First drive review: The 2019 Acura NSX grips better, and gives more

    North Georgia roads bustle in the spring but crowds thin when browned leaves and cool north winds arrive. It’s just warm enough to keep the windows down and the tires warm. In other words, it’s perfect NSX weather. The 2019 Acura NSX doesn’t veer far off the course Acura plotted...

  • 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S, Circuit Ricardo Tormo, Valencia, Spain, January 2019

    The 2020 Porsche 911 is here and it's spectacular. So far, Porsche has only announced the S and 4S models in coupe and convertible form, and we've driven the coupes.

    The snake has finally returned. On Monday, the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 was unveiled at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit with a surprise for enthusiasts: no manual transmission. But why? Ford spokesman Jiyan Cadiz told Motor Authority the 2020 Shelby GT500 doesn't offer a manual transmission is because Ford doesn't have one that can handle the power the new snake puts out. The most powerful production Mustang ever will send power to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic supplied by Tremec. ALSO SEE: Here's what the 2020 Shelby Mustang GT500 sounds...

For two months, Motor Authority editors buckled into a 2018 Ford Mustang GT to look for the people and the stories that helped make one of America’s most vibrant and iconic cars. Over the days, weeks, and thousands of miles, a rich picture emerged of an America that seemingly...
