the two Factory guys at Curborough taster day in the pale blue SS, one of whom was allegedly the sales manager(?) reckoned they had 970 orders for the 3w, have over 200 been cancelled/turned away.
I think we should be told.
I am one of them evil persons that cancelled their M3W order, but...
Never thougt of buying a Morgan before but I just fell in love with the Thee Wheeler after seeing it on internet just before Geneva, I just had to order one.
During that following summer/autumn I filled my garage with 5 other three wheelers (yes:
), that together with "some life evolving" reflexions ended up with me cancelling my order...and instead ordered a Plus 4. If I had not seen that three wheeler picture on the net....Morgan had probably not sold a Plus 4 to me. So behind the figure (right or wrong) of cancelled orders so much more information could be hidden that might not at all be negative from a Morgan perspective. One of the ideas with the Three Wheeler probably were to attract new (Morgan virgins) customers - mission accomplished
Morgan has now focused their resources and created an effective set-up for production of Three Wheelers - the quality looks excellent and the cars seems to work well for the happy owners. If this is a permanent setup of course there must now be a high priority to keep up the sales, remember that not all markets are yet covered or fully covered. If it for instance ends up being a hit in US there will be pretty crowded on Pickersleigh Road... If not I guess Morgan has taken all precautions to quickly be able to scale down or rearrange their resources. Remember that product development never sleeps...what exciting products comes next
Well, deep inside I know that I need one sooner or later...imagine, say in 5 years you see a well kept M3W second hand for sale. One owner (preferably old lady), low mileage, your favourite colour and with a suitable price - will I be the only one spontaniously grabbing for the wallet
