About Autoweek

An Introduction to Autoweek Autoweek has been keeping readers up to speed on the latest car and racing news since 1958, and though we look a little different today than we did all those years ago, you can trust you’ll still get the same great, authoritative content as ever—only more of it.That’s because as an all-digital publication, we’re never “off,” and as quickly as things in the automotive arena are changing, it’s our job to make sure you can get up to speed whenever—and wherever—you want.Indeed, the car world has never been in a more dynamic space—not since the birth of the horseless carriage itself—with designs, propulsion systems, driver assists, and even the regulations keeping automakers honest and accountable all evolving and adapting at lightning speeds. And Autoweek is devoted to making sure you can keep up.We like to think of Autoweek as an upper-level course in tomorrow’s car, where the vehicle you’ll find in your driveway five or 10 years down the road is brought to digital life today.To that end, Autoweek dives deep into the kinds of technologies being developed—in engineering labs and on racetracks—as well as who’s doing the developing, and how all that development adds up to the cars and trucks we’ll be driving—and that, gulp, will be driving us. Ultimately, we strive to better understand how they will increasingly keep us safe, use fewer resources, serve all drivers, and be kinder to our planet.We’re endlessly curious about the future of the car, and believe you are, too.Affiliate DisclosureAutoweek participates in various affiliate marketing programs, which means we may get paid commissions on products purchased through our links to retailer sites.

A 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera S, 1972 VW Beetle, 2023 Chevy Bolt EV, and a well-loved purple-and-white five-speed Schwinn—with oversized pannier bags and a dog-carrying basket up front—currently call her garage home.Josh ScottTom MurphyExecutive EditorTom’s the staff newbie, having joined Autoweek in 2022 after nearly 25 years as an editor at WardsAuto, and 10 years as a daily newspaper reporter before that. He’s been in metro Detroit all his life. His personal cars have been downright practical, and he’s happy paying them off and enjoying several years of debt-free motoring. The craziness of COVID drove him to buy a 1953 Packard Patrician, in honor of his grandfather, who worked at the Packard plant until production ceased in the mid-1950s.Doreen MurphyMark Vaughn West Coast EditorMark Vaughn grew up in a Ford family and spent many hours holding a trouble light over a straight-six miraculously fed by a single-barrel carburetor while his father cursed Ford, all its products, and everyone who ever worked there. This was his introduction to objective automotive criticism. He started writing for City News Service in Los Angeles, then moved to Europe and became editor of a car magazine called, creatively, Auto. He decided Auto should cover Formula 1, sports prototypes and touring cars—no one stopped him! From there he interviewed with Autoweek at the 1989 Frankfurt motor show and has been with us ever since.AutoweekMike PrysonMotorsports EditorMike Pryson covered auto racing for the Jackson (Mich.) Citizen Patriot and M-LiveMedia Group from 1991 until joining Autoweek in 2011. He won several Michigan Associated Press and national Associated Press Sports Editors awards for auto racing coverage and was named the 2000 Michigan Auto Racing Fans Club’s Michigan Motorsports Writer of the Year. A Michigan native, Mike spent three years after college working in southwest Florida before realizing that the land of Disney and endless summer was no match for the challenge of freezing rain, potholes and long, cold winters in the Motor City.Josh ScottJay RameyAssociate EditorJay Ramey grew up around very strange European cars, and instead of seeking out something reliable and comfortable for his own personal use he has been drawn to the more adventurous side of the dependability spectrum. Despite being followed around by French cars for the past decade, he has somehow been able to avoid Citroën ownership, judging them too commonplace, and is currently looking at cars from the former Czechoslovakia. Jay has been with Autoweek since 2013.AutoweekWesley WrenAssociate EditorWesley Wren has spent his entire life around cars, whether it’s dressing up as his father’s 1954 Ford for Halloween as a child, repairing cars in college, or collecting frustrating pieces of history—and most things in between. Wesley is the current steward of a 1954 Ford Crestline Victoria, a 1975 Harley-Davidson FXE, and a 1959 Ford Fairlane 500 Galaxie. Oh yeah, and a 2005 Kia Sedona.Josh ScottEmmet WhiteAssociate EditorA New York transplant hailing from the Pacific Northwest, Emmet White has a passion for anything that goes: cars, bicycles, planes, and motorcycles. After learning to ride at 17, Emmet worked in the motorcycle industry before joining Autoweek in 2022. The woes of alternate side parking have kept his fleet moderate, with a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta GLI and a 2003 Honda Nighthawk 750 street parked in his South Brooklyn community.Autoweek
