The Motor (later, just Motor) was a British weekly car magazine founded on 28 January 1903 and published by Temple Press. It was initially launched as Motorcycling and Motoring in 1902 before the title was shortened.[dead link] From the 14 March 1964 issue the magazine name was simply Motor. Compared to rival The Autocar (later, just Autocar), Motor was more informative and more conservative.
|First issue||28 January 1903|
The magazine usually included:
- News and scoops of latest cars
- Motorsport news and results
- Car reviews-normally two, both 2 pages long with specifications and impressions.
- Road tests-one per week and very detailed
In 1988 the journal was absorbed by its long-standing rival Autocar, which became, from the 7 September issue, Autocar & Motor. Six years later, with the 21 September 1994 issue, the name reverted to Autocar.
