Great post Alistair smile

Some of the earlier posts have been diabolical and certainly don't belong on a Morgan enthusiasts forum IMHO.

Well said Alistair

I got my fist car in 2005. I'm now on my 6th new car so I'd say I'm a good supporter of the brand.

I was in Geneva for the launch and spoke to several members of the Morgan family about the car and the business. They are passionate about the business and so is Steve Morris and the workforce.

I've looked on TM and social media what has amazed me is the comments from those who claim to be Morgan supporters who have never bought a new Morgan or even a used one in Howard's case, and think because they have a 20 year old car they are keeping Morgan alive.

The amount of shite on here from so called friends of Morgan is one of the reasons I don't post that often.

We don't know is the circumstances, background or reasoning. But when the Italians cash in you could all be shareholders it'll be interesting to see who then puts their money where their mouth is when this comes about.

Asbo, not the best of posts. Not everyone can afford a new Morgan .some of us that own second hand cars are just as passionate about Morgan as anyone.

@Alistair

in a part of what you said you are right, but Morgan are not in that part. Morgan is antique cars hand made, what we see now is sport cars with skyrocket price in a market overcrowded, how and where they will find their place ?. How many people here clearly said they can't afford the new +6, what will be their sell key point an obsolete design, antique construction (hand made) with ultra modern engine ?. Who will buy such impractical cars at such price ? at 20, 30 40, 50K OK but near 100K excuse me but i don't see so many and with the tax in far east the price will be double.

From where the sell record of MMC, come from witch model exactly ?

The investor is a pension fund, not a charity office, they will push MMC as a Cash Cow, pocket in and move to an other prey.

The founder of my company pass away, the company fall down in investor hand, we are really rich now, but we have loose our soul and we see our futur in black, many of the key manager already fly away our core customer start to hate the products we do and we are attacked by every side.

But yes we are rich, maybe too much, but we are lost and we don't made any new interesting products, but we made money, for how long time, we are all worry about that.

Is it that you want for MMC ?, do you feel confident for their futur with such screenplay ?

Personally i don't

Everything is possible, and i wish to wrong but again i am ready to bet big in my point of view, because i have see such story several time.

It is entirely possible for a thriving business such as Morgan to produce healthy financial returns for both the investors and the company, good returns attract more investment, good companies attract good customers.

Howard’s example of a business strategy is a typical short term gain style, not one I’d adopt, and it’s illogical in this case, like cooking the goose that lays the golden egg.

It's one of the reasons I'm losing interest in this forum (and the various Morgan email reflectors).
Like many though, I cannot and never will be able to, afford a new one - however old cars require parts and servicing so there is some expenditure going on...
