It sure looks to me like you panned.

I said I did not pan. I said it twice. If you have an opinion, share it. But, please don't complicate the issue. Thanks. I googled to see if other photographers have similar issue, Could be lens related? I don't know. Maybe shooting a high f number?

I agree with Ferguson it looks like you have panned, if only slightly as a reaction when you pressed the shutter. I don't believe the car is out of focus it simply has not been panned correctly or the camera held steadily enough to prevent movement and is blurred. You are moving the camera as you shoot. If you want this effect with those settings put the camera on a tripod and then everything but the car would be sharp,
