AUTOWEEK Daily Drive 9/8/2015 Fascinating

If AUTOWEEK’s 9/8/2015 edition hasn’t hit your email box yet, go to AUTOWEEK’s website forthwith and check out its feature on old car brochures. Removes all excuses to ever be bored again.

That Daily Drive’s lead feature, the expose on Jaguar’s 2016 Jaguar XF 35t and S AWD first drive, is a disappointment, though. Pass it by. That piece reads like it came from a frustrated romance novelist. It fluttered my credibility warning flags terribly.

But that old car brochure piece is fantastic!
