As the auto industry went sour the car shipping industry picked up. People were looking to buy cars, but they were looking everywhere to find the best deals on new and used cars. Everyone wanted something quality, but cheap (don’t we all). We had our auto haulers full nearly every route we did during that time period.
Just as GM, Chrsyler and other auto manufacturers were having trouble in the mid to late 2000’s another company overseas were having troubles as well. The company is called TVR and it located in Britain. It went through three different owners and multiple bankruptcies before completely closing its doors in 2006. The company was again sold off again in 2013 and these people are serious about bringing TVR to life yet again.
McLaren’s Gordon Murray is taking a hands on approach and is helping TVR get back on track. The company is slating to have 4 new vehicles to be released within the next ten years, with the first release to be in 2017. The newest vehicle will use Murray’s iStream chassis technology.
The CEO of TVR is claiming that the company is well-funded and very well supported and that the company will e back soon and will be around for a long time. The new business plan is set out for the long haul with the 4 new vehicles being released within 10 years. That is a stretch for any auto maker let alone a newer start-up type.
One of the problems that experts are saying is that TVR is such a small company with a following that is not the largest and that it will be an uphill battle for the company. However, Car Shipping Carriers thinks the company will do just fine if they make great cars. Look at the picture on the top of this article. That was a vehicle they built in 2004. If they had that great of style back then, we are guessing they will blow the competition out of the water. Look at Tesla Motors. The name came out of nowhere and they are the most innovative auto maker currently and have there name floating around everywhere. As long as TVR can make quality cars that are great to look at and great to drive, the company will be strong.
