Stare breathlessly into TopGear’s crystal ball this month. Do you see them too? The Most Wanted Cars of 2019 fanned out in these pages from a V12 Aston Martin to the fully electric VW ID sandwiching cars like the Porsche 911, Ford Ranger Raptor and BMW M8. Our lead story though hits a bullseye with the Toyota Supra – unveiled just in time to put all the official images and technical data into the magazine, which coincidentally also features the drive of the new BMW Z4, on which the Supra is based. We’ll leave the early comparisons up to you. Mercedes’s Formula One for the Road project is finding out first hand how difficult that marriage is but Tobias Moers speaks to TopGear about the challenges before clearing his throat as he does his best interpretation of the turbo-hybrid’s noise as it grazes 10 000rpm. Hey, that’s our job Tobias. Why all the social-economic meltdown over the depletion of fossil fuels when Porsche has the Panamera Turbo S-E Hybrid? The EV revolution is upon us so we head to the first country in the Middle East to strike oil, and the first to run out. Should we worry, or does the Panamera make the whole ‘running out’ thing not just bearable but fun too? And while in Bahrain, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit the largest private supercar collection that not even Instagram manages to hashtag. Get your copy for the latest car launches, a shootout between the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk vs Range Rover SVR plus all the news of the month you’ll possibly need for the next thirty days. As always, your support and feedback helps us get to the very best cars of the year. You don’t want to miss them in the coming months.
