Ford announced its return to F1, we drove the 2023 Porsche 911 Dakar and the 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 received EPA range ratings. It’s the week in reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

Ford announced its return to F1 racing in 2026. Through a new partnership with Red Bull Racing, Ford will work closely with the team’s Power Unit division, marking the Blue Oval’s first participation in F1 in over 20 years.

The 2024 Audi Q8 was tested on public roads in Europe. Spotted in prototype form with minimal camouflage, the updated flagship crossover SUV will feature revised bezels. However, it’s unclear if meaningful updates will happen inside or under the hood.

We got behind the wheel of the 2023 Porsche 911 Dakar and pushed the elevated sports car to its limits in the sand clouds of the Moroccan desert. The Verdict: If you have the means, this is a highly desirable package that is almost unlike anything else available today. It’s a wild and rowdy thing that deserves all the attention.

The 2024 Mazda CX-90 debuted with three rows of seats, a new rear-wheel-drive platform and a choice of Turbo 6 or plug-in hybrid powertrains. It’s a handsome crossover SUV that seems to outperform its direct competitors in terms of refinement and efficiency, at least on paper.

The 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 received EPA range ratings of up to 361 miles per charge. Outperforming the longest-ranging Tesla Model 3, the Ioniq 6 relies on its sleek form and numerous aero design improvements to get through every mile.
