Pebbles, Jaguars and a stick-shift shootout: Our week on Instagram

Carfection's back! Hooray, my job is easier!

Despite what I said last week, Carfection is not actually dead. We recovered them from the side of Mount Everest, just fine, except for one team member that had a bite taken out of his arm. Hey, I get it, sometimes you just get hungry. Either way, I'm happy to announce that both our Instagram channels were up, running and actually posting this past week!

Carfection spent its week putting together its "Masters of the Manuverse" special. No, it's not some horrible Maxim feature with bikinis and trampolines. Instead, it's a celebration of some of the finest cars you can buy with a manual transmission. They're driving the Ford Focus RS, Mini JCW Challenge, Aston Martin V12 Vantage S and Porsche Cayman GT4. Man, I should really move to England.

Over at Roadshow, we've just landed at Pebble Beach, so expect pictures from that to be here next week. Before today's Instagram-post cutoff, though, Tim made sure to get up close and personal with the 991.2 Porsche 911 Turbo. Emme spent some time with two different electrics -- one's a Tesla, and the other, a travel trailer. Wayne had some time in the Jaguar F-Type R, and Chris has been working with the new Mazda CX-9. As for me, I spent some time with two new Dodges.
