''The Motor'' (later, just ''Motor'') was a British weekly car magazine founded on 28 January 1903 and published by Temple Press. It was initially launched as ''Motorcycling and Motoring'' in 1902 before the title was shortened. From the 14 March 1964 issue the magazine name was simply ''Motor''. Compared to rival ''The Autocar'' (later, just ''Autocar''), ''Motor'' was more informative and more conservative. The magazine usually included: * News and scoops of latest cars * Motorsport news and results * Car reviews-normally two, both 2 pages long with specifications and impressions. * Road tests-one per week and very detailed In 1988 the journal was absorbed by its long-standing rival '' Autocar'', which became, from the 7 September issue, ''Autocar & Motor''. Six years later, with the 21 September 1994 issue, the name reverted to ''Autocar''.
