I for one don't really care what they do as I love my car just the way it is but obviously whatever comes along I hope it is a great success which will ensure the company keeps going for another 100 years ( not very likely but still )

Thanks for the heads up. Interesting article; I liked the editorial comment.

I hope I’m not breaking copyright law by reproducing the article.

Personally I will be upgrading to a modern chassis.

I am glad to see that Morgan have decided to take the chance and jump forward into a new world, the previous chassis design has lasted for 80+ years, it's entirely possible that the replacement could last for a long time as well, the fact they have designed it with different power options in mind certainly stands them in good stead.

If they want someone to test one I would be more than happy to do so laugh

Hopefully a classic bodied new chassis car won't be too expensive...

I personally think Morgan's best chance of survival is:

- upmarket - bespoke vehicles, that have a British theme and engineering excellence.

This will of course have an expense entry point...but so what? crazy2

I'm more than happy with my Plus 8, but looking ahead to the future customers and the company this has to be good news as long as they can keep entry level below 60K I think they'll struggle to do that.
