Supercars, super cars and a Gigafactory: Our week on Instagram

Next week, Instagram will be somebody else's problem! Mwahaha. I'll probably still have to write this, though.

Stepping back into our weekly Instagram post after a week away is a joyous feeling, like returning home from a long trip and finding your favorite slippers waiting right inside the doorway. Wait, where was I? Oh, right. You should follow us on Instagram. We do neat things.

Carfection's week was all about supercars. With Alex about to embark on a weeklong vacation (another reason for me to hate him), Drew took the helm. First, he slid behind the wheel of Acura's new NSX. To counteract all the electrified trickery taking place under the hood, Drew then went off to drive Aston Martin's new DB11. Not a bad week, that.

Over at Roadshow, we had quite the busy week. I spent some time with two different Teslas, while Tim shuffled off to check out Tesla's in-progress Gigafactory. Jon and Emme were getting down and dirty with Ford trucks -- Jon, the Roush F-150, and Emme, the 2017 Ford Super Duty. Chris bit the bullet for the team and spent the week with the Cadillac XT5. It's not a bad car by any stretch, but it's by far the least interesting of the week.
