We haven't heard much from TVR lately but the company's website was recently updated with a teaser-like image that declares "Never say never."

It remains unclear if TVR is planning a relaunch, but the last time we heard from owner Nikolai Smolensky he had abandoned hopes of car production. At the time, Smolensky said the TVR name would live on but be used on a venture that builds portable wind turbines.

As of last month, the TVR website declared "We support all owners of TVR sports cars by ensuring supply of spares and the development of alternative drive trains. Nevertheless at the moment we do not manufacture new cars. Any such claims in various media are fake."

That doesn't sound encouraging but TVR has a history of rising from the ashes, if only temporarily.
