Breaking news is striking our industry as word has come that 2&4 Motoring, publishers of Best Motoring and Hot Version for over 24 years, will be forced to shut down both operations effective next month.
This is tragic news to many of us who grew up watching some of the greatest JDM vehicles battling it out on the track or in Touge battles on lonely mountain passes. Quite easily one of the biggest influences on the import car culture, both Best Motoring and Hot Version were religiously received by many in anticipation every time a new one was released.
7Tune is reporting that many of the staff will be parting ways and pursuing new endeavors with many of them possibly returning in some form or another in video media. Our hope is that they’ll resurface together rather than fragmented, delivering us hot video goodies online.
