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.[1] From the March 14, 1964 issue the magazine name was simply Motor.

In 1988 the journal was absorbed by its long-standing rival Autocar, which became, from the September 7 issue, Autocar & Motor. Six years later, with the September 21, 1994 issue, the name reverted to Autocar.
