Over its 125 years, Autocar has been lucky enough to meet and build relationships with the very top players in the automotive industry. Here, some of today's most prominent industry executives and recognisable personalities tell us why they appreciate Autocar.
Carlos Tavares - Chairman, PSA Group
I congratulate Autocar for its amazing 125 years in production. It has always been a reference authority on all things motoring, and I warmly applaud the team for their continued success.
James May - The Grand Tour presenter
When Autocar fired me, I thought I was merely losing my job. I didn’t realise that I was being committed to a path of career development that would, tragically, lead to me spend half my adult life in close proximity to Jeremy Clarkson. He was never good enough for a job on Autocar.
Stephen Norman - Managing director, Vauxhall
Autocar is an institution that I grew up with in the 1960s and ’70s and Motor, which it incorporates, even before that. To be alive today, let alone the digital-embracing, all-outliving powerhouse that it now is, says more than any witness statement. Eschewing the buzzword generations yet sidelining the bloggers and vloggers says a great deal about your terrific team. I love you guys.
Sir jackie Stewart - three-time Formula One World Champion
I’ve been a regular reader of Autocar for almost as long as I can remember – even as a wee boy watching my big brother, Jimmy Stewart, race cars for Ecurie Ecosse, Aston Martin and Jaguar. It was a wonderful magazine then and it’s even more wonderful that it’s still in circulation today. Autocar has been part not only of motoring but also, more specifically in my world, of motorsport itself. Happy anniversary and congratulations for keeping the ball rolling for so many years.
Simon Saunders - Managing director, Ariel Motor Co.
From the 1898 Ariel De Dion Tricycle to the 2020 Ariel Atom, Autocar has been there with valued opinion and critical comment every mile of the journey. What an amazing achievement.
