TVR was one of the more refreshing, yet slightly-mad, sports car manufacturers in the world. Their cars were uniquely styled and offered amazing performance for the price. Some shied away from the cars, mostly due to the cottage-industry build quality and out-of-place ergonomics.
The company has been in limbo in recent times, but AutoExpress is reporting that a shift in manufacturing from the British Blackpool Factory to Germany will bring a new TVR in September. The company that will be handling the assembly is Gullwing GmbH, who manufacturers replicas of the AC Cobra and Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing replicas. While it isn’t clear why the shift is being made, the company has plenty of fiberglass knowledge to create the new car.
The new TVR that should appear this year will be based on the Sagaris chassis, and will use an updated Tuscan body. Power will come in the way of EPA-approved Chevrolet Corvette V-8s that will allow the company to tap into the American sports-car market.
Other TVR news is that they are planning several new models, some which may be complete electric-vehicles.
Only time will tell if TVR can pull through and come up with a car this fall.
