Caterham plans on building "tens of thousands" car by 2020, according to CEO Mike Gascoyne.

Caterham plans on building "tens of thousands" of cars by 2020, according to CEO Mike Gascoyne.

Last month Caterham and Renault announced their collaboration for reinventing the Alpine name. Owner Tony Fernandes wants a rapid development of the company into more mainstream models with ex F1 team boss Mike Gascoyne as CEO.

The co-developed sports cars will share the same platform, but will come with different designs. Caterham will use the services of a "well known UK design house" for the new coupe which will "draw influence" from the firm's Seven model.

The British brand has plans on launching several "fun-related" models, but not all of them will be sports cars as Gascoyne believes that a car company can't be a success if they only sell two-seaters. Autocar is reporting that Caterham might even launch a range of sport-related SUVs.
