Autoweek in review: Ferrari teases supercar, Mini flips out and the 2013 Porsche Panamera GTS

Fri, 22 Feb 2013

While many of us spent Monday honoring our favorite presidents (still Taft, Van Buren and R.B. Hayes), Ferrari teased us with shots of its Enzo successor and gave us some pricing details. By now you should have saved at least 20 bucks toward that $1.3 million.

We kept up with the supercar theme Tuesday, sharing details on how to jump the waiting list of the 2013 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 roadster. We also watched a Mini Countryman do a back flip.

Midweek, we got word that McLaren would reveal the P1 at the Geneva motor show, packing a whopping 903 hp, we reviewed the 2013 Lexus LS 460 AWD F Sport and looked back at our 1966 Competition Press coverage of the Ford GT40's first 24 Hours of Le Mans win.

Autoweek's review notes on the 2013 Porsche Panamera GTS sparked debate on Thursday, and VW made plans to show a production version of the XL1 plug-in hybrid at Geneva. VW says it can get up to 270 mpg.

We ended the week with spy shots of the new Jeep Cherokee, relived the 1991 supercar battle between the Lamborghini Countach and Ferrari Testarossa, and learned a lesson on combustion engines from a 1935 film, “Down the Gasoline Trail.”

Be sure to check with us next week, as we report on the upcoming Geneva motor show.
