An article in todays Times tells me that Morgan are to increase their production by 60% to 52000 vehicles by 2020!
Is this true or have the Times good trouble with "0"s

60% of 1,000 would make it 1,600 to my old maths way of thinking.
Or perhaps MMC are going to take over the Toyota works or similar when they leave us post-breakfast.

That would leave even more work for their dealers to finish off!
Seriously that figure seems pie in the sky given the way they currently build cars. If they move away from the current hand made image then they would lose a major factor in why we currently love them.

With a workforce of 200 that equates to 260 vehicles per worker per year. Less than two days for each worker to complete each car.
Quality control out the window.
3D printed scale models maybe !

I think there is a problem with zeros, plus they are including all models. Still a bit exaggerated. Probably the 5 is a typo doh

Sounds like the sort of BS that comes out when a company is about to be floated on the stock exchange wink

Aero wing mirrors are already 3D printed, so they have made a start
