2023 Nissan Z, Chevelle Super Sport, 2023 Lexus RX: The Week In Reverse

We drove the 2023 Nissan Z, Trans Am Worldwide revealed a Chevelle throwback, and the 2023 Lexus RX received a reveal date. It’s the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

We had our first stint behind the wheel of the 2023 Nissan Z both on the street and the track. The verdict? The new Z34 generation may be based on the previous Z33 model, but the chassis enhancements, suspension changes, and extra power add up a compelling package.

The Pagani C10 was teased ahead of its Sept. 12 debut in Milan. The hypercar is set to replace the Huayra, and no more than 300 examples will be made. Buyers will be able to choose between a twin-turbo V-12 powertrain or an electric model.

Trans Am Worldwide introduced the 70/SS. A throwback to the 1970 Chevelle Super Sport, the 70/SS is a reskinned and upgraded Camaro with up

Fuccillo Automotive Group sells 10 dealerships in New York

Darwish, formerly a minority partner in a New Jersey Audi dealership and a platform manager for Napleton Automotive Group, said that after entering into an agreement with Fuccillo in August 2020, he ran into several delays. His lawyer’s office shut down because of COVID-19, and Darwish contracted the disease.

“I almost died,” he told Automotive News. “I was in the hospital for 19 days.”

Darwish said he was on oxygen for two months but recovered. Then in June 2021, Fuccillo Automotive CEO Billy Fuccillo Sr. died.

Darwish said he had little sleep over those 20 months as he worked to meet with multiple manufacturers and banks to wrap up the deal.

He now has a staff of more than 400 people, whom Darwish described as “very good workers.”

“The staff that came along with this deal is spectacular,” he said. “The team is a tremendous team.”

Opponents of Jerusalem cable car plan lose Supreme Court case

JERUSALEM, May 15 (Reuters) – Israeli and Palestinian opponents of an Israeli plan to run a cable car over Jerusalem to the walls of the Old City lost on Sunday their Supreme Court case against a project they argued would alter its ancient landscape.

A unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel disseminated by the Justice Ministry showed the court had decided against intervening to reverse the Israeli government’s 2019 approval of the plan, saying proper planning procedures had been followed.

The proposed cable car would shuttle some 3,000 tourists and worshippers per hour from the western part of Jerusalem to an area near the Dung Gate entrance to the eastern Old City in a four-minute ride.

Palestinians say the project would erase their heritage in areas they seek for a future state, and that the planned route would place cable cars

Smart cars won’t last forever

This article was originally featured on The Drive.

You’ve heard the stories: Irv Gordon’s three-million-mile Volvo; Rachel Veitch had the oil in her Mercury Comet changed every 3,000 miles since 1964; a 102-year-old man drove the same car for 82 years. In the car world, we think of these rare owners as moral heroes. Whatever their reason—sentimentality? Yankee thrift? Obsessive compulsion?—they’ve sacrificed the novelty of the new for a durable relationship. They’ve won a marathon most of us don’t bother running.

I’ve been thinking a lot about long-haul car owners as we race toward a technology inflection that will upend the more than a century-old custom of car ownership. Rather than maintain their vehicles lovingly over decades, the Rachel Veitchs and Irv Gordons of the not-so-distant future—if any might still exist—will be compelled to trade them in for reasons that would have read like
