It’s been a few years since British manufacturer TVR has built a sportscar. They went through three owners, multiple bankruptcies, and countless other headaches before the company finally folded in 2006. In June of 2013, the company was once again sold off, and according to new owners, fans of fast British machines should get ready— because a new TVR is on the rise.
 
According to Autocar, TVR, with the help of McLaren’s own Gordon Murray, will be unleashing at least four new models within the next ten years, and the first should be out in 2017. The company recently announced that its first new car in almost a decade will use Gordon Murray’s innovative iStream chassis technology in combination with a Cosworth-tuned V8.

While much of the details still under wraps, CEO Les Edgar believes that once TVR is back producing cars, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. “We are a well-funded, well-supported organisation and boast a vastly experienced management team.
 
 We are here to stay and we have a fully evolved ten year plan for product and business development, and are committed to deliver on all the targets we have set ourselves – as we have done to date.”
 
After the debacle that surrounded TVR throughout its many changes in leadership, it’s still unclear whether the British marquee has enough name recognition to stay afloat. We’re eager to see TVR’s new design, and we are definitely rooting for the tiny company. Now, we just have to wait and see what happens.
