I can only guess, but maybe two years? The run out models will be interesting/rare/expensive.

I suspect that this has been a deliberate Strategy.

Sales volumes have not fallen.
They built up cash that allowed them to but the factory freehold back
They ramped up R&D significantly

So, when the new models appear at Geneva 2019 I predict that we will see:

A Trad body sitting on the new tub, with a BMW straight 6 and a BMW hybrid 4, priced at about the level of the Roadster, which will disappear.

My prediction for Geneva 2020 is that we will see a smaller 3 cylinder engine, and a hybrid and that will replace the 4/4 and +4.

Geneva 2020 or 21 We should see a further new chassis and an Aeroesque body with a BMW V8 as the flagship, but also with a hybrid 4 for markets where a V8 is bot viable due to taxes on large engines.

By Geneva 2022 there will be fully electric versions of all cars on offer.

But I could be totally wrong!





I hope this all happens , sounds excellent , are the factory noticing our posts as we are the cutting edge of Morgan interested clients !!

I know that this place is monitored by MMC.
I've told Mark Leddington that I'm interested in the new Morgans..
But the price will be key....

Key is the word, Peter also the CO2 levels as this governs the massive extra tax bill over here!
