TVR Has Big Plans Starting in 2017
It’s been a few years since British manufacturer TVR built a sportscar. They went through three owners, multiple bankruptcies, and countless other headaches before the company finally folded in 2006. In June 2013, the company was once again sold off. According to its new owners, fans of fast British machines should get ready: a new TVR is on the rise. According to Autocar, TVR, with the help of McLaren’s Gordon Murray, will be unleashing at least four new models within the next 10 years, and the first should be out in 2017. The company recently announced that its first new car in almost a decade will use Murray’s innovative iStream chassis technology in combination with a Cosworth-tuned V8.

With much of the details still under wraps, CEO Les Edgar says that once TVR is back producing cars, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. “We are a well-funded, well-supported organization and boast a vastly experienced management team. We are here to stay and we have a fully evolved 10-year plan for product and business development, and are committed to deliver on all the targets we have set ourselves – as we have done to date."
After the debacle that surrounded TVR throughout its many changes in leadership, it’s still unclear whether the British brand has enough name recognition to stay afloat. We’re eager to see TVR’s new design, and are rooting for the tiny company. Now, we just wait and see what happens.
