The World’s Oldest Car Magazine: 37 Vintage Cover Photos of the Autocar in the 1950s

Autocar (originally The Autocar) is a weekly British automobile magazine published by the Haymarket Media Group. It was first published in 1895 and refers to itself as “the world’s oldest car magazine”. There are now several international editions, including for China, India, New Zealand, and South Africa.

The magazine’s name was changed from The Autocar to Autocar at the start of 1962. In 1988, Autocar absorbed the rival magazine Motor, with which it had done battle on the newsstands since 1903. From the 7 September 1988 issue the magazine became Autocar & Motor. It reverted to Autocar for the 21 September 1994 issue.

In 2021, Autocar digitized its entire archive dating back to 1895. The Motoring Archive is available to subscribers online.

Autocar has been licensed to publishers around the world, and is now published in sixteen countries outside the United Kingdom, including China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, and Vietnam.
