AT THE TAIL END • A slight tailing off of the Porsche 911 market has turned into a landslide during lockdown, at least for some models
AUTUMN OF YEARS • Putting in a combined 27 years of service, the elegant Mulliner Park Ward, Corniche, and Continental models represent some of the best Rolls-Royce and Bentley qualities. We take a late Continental out to experience what it’s all about.
CUT-PRICE CONVERTIBLES • The Mk1 Mazda MX-5 reinvigorated the sports car genre, but competition came thick and fast – can the ‘NB’ Mk2 tackle the often forgotten Mk3 Toyota MR2?
HIDDEN HEADLAMPS • It’s been 50 years since hidden headlamps began to be the height of fashion in car design, 30 years since they fell from favour and 15 years since you could last buy a car with them in the UK. We revisit some favourites.
THE BIG GUNS • With the cheapest route into E-Type ownership being via the Series III, we investigate the potential pitfalls of opting for this V12-engined classic.
DATABASE: TRIUMPH 2000/2500 (1963-1977) • The last gasp of an independent Triumph was strong enough to last from its introduction in the ’60s until the arrival of its replacement, the Rover SD1.
THAT LUCAS INJECTION
DID YOU KNOW
PUTTING THE BOOT IN • The Escort gets a long-overdue interior tidy-up.
SUBARU IMPREZA • With a golden history in motorsport, popular fame on the road, and diminishing numbers, the Impreza Turbo is a sure-fire classic and values are on the rise
DOWNSIZING • Even the premium brands joined in the ’90s roadster revival but BMW and Mercedes took very different approaches. We try to choose between SLK and Z3.
PATH TO STARDOM • The Audi 80 and 90 set the brand on its path to market domination, but that’s not enough for them to have survived in any great numbers.
THE SECOND ALBUM • Replacing the classic Range Rover was never going to be easy, and the P38A is still often considered an outsider to the classic scene. But if you want to buy one and see just how good it really is, read on.
