2021 Toyota Supra tested, Tesla production and more: Roadshow's week in review
Here's a look at the most important stories for the week ending May 16.
It all started with Gran Turismo. From those early PlayStation days, Sean was drawn to anything with four wheels. Prior to joining the Roadshow team, he was a freelance contributor for Motor Authority, The Car Connection and Green Car Reports. As for what's in the garage, Sean owns a 2016 Chevrolet SS, and yes, it has Holden badges.
Another week, another round of new car reviews and a host of news. It's what we do here at Roadshow, so thanks for being with us as we run down this week's heaviest hitters.
This week, our staff issued their thoughts on some pretty great cars like the the 2021 Toyota Supra and its new turbo-four-powered variant. We even drove the Ferrari F8 Tributo. And the news cycle didn't slow down as we followed the drama surrounding Tesla reopening its plant in Fremont, California. Check it all out plus more below.
Here's a recap of our most important stories from May 10-16.
The Toyota Supra returns for the 2021 model year with more power. Is that what this sports car needed? Reviews Editor Jon Wong got behind the wheel of the latest version to let us know. All the while, Managing Editor Steve Ewing tested the new Supra 2.0, which packs a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The turbo-four model carries its own benefits, he found.
And now for something different. Reviews Editor Craig Cole drove the 2020 Nissan Frontier, which packs its much-anticipated new engine. It might look like the same truck from years past, but the powertrain makes it a much better rig, Cole believes.
Tesla reopens amid drama: The electric carmaker's CEO Elon Musk openly defied local stay-at-home orders to restart production at the company's plant in Fremont, California. The drama includes, but is not limited to, a lawsuit, threats to move Tesla's headquarters and more.
Genesis' new SUV is popular: The GV80 SUV has 10,000 preorders to its name, the brand's CEO told Roadshow. We saw the SUV debut earlier this year, which makes the preorders pretty impressive for such a short period of time.
