    This is just the start. All of the molds for current models, as well all spares have been sold off to TVR Power.
    RIP..it will never be the same!

    Supposedly, Nikolai Smolenski has scheduled an "announcement" on January 17th as to the future of TVR. But, since so many of the previously scheduled "meetings", "announcements", or whatever were not kept, all we can do is wait and see.
    The general line of thought is that this is when he's going to tell the world that he's moving TVR production to Italy where they'll build the new 600 hp. Typhoon which he claims he'll have on the stand at the Geneva show this year.

    We'll see.....

    too little too late. I am afraid that trust in the make has been lost sadly once again. TVR is and should remain BRITISH!! Who would purchase a Ferrari built in Britian?

    It is amazing any manufacturing survives in the UK considering their tax situation and labor unions.

    sooo true Coyote. I do not think that the taxing is such a problem as the unions. I have freinds in the UK that operate totally different businessesand they both complain about the workers.
