It's the end of the road for venerable Automobile magazine and 18 other automotive publications, at least outside of your Internet browser.
TEN Publishing is shutting down print operations for all but three of its 22 titles. Motor Trend, Hot Rod and Four Wheeler will remain in circulation. Among the titles going out of print are Car Craft, Mopar Muscle, Mustang Monthly, Street Rodder, Super Chevy, Truck Trend and Vette.
"We are doubling down on our best-in-class digital product experiences while maintaining support of the three most popular, profitable and strategic brands across digital and print," the publishing company said in a statement.
In a memo to staff obtained by Folio, MotorTrend Group President Alex Wellen said: "Simply put, we need to be where our audience is. Tens of millions of fans visit MotorTrend's digital properties every month, with the vast majority of our consumption on mobile, and three out of every four of our visitors favor digital content over print."
Automobile was founded in 1986 by David E. Davis and other former employees of Car and Driver with backing from Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.
"While TEN Publishing will no longer print Automobile magazine, MotorTrend Group will continue to offer our digital coverage," the magazine said on Twitter. "On the Web, it's full steam ahead."
