I have some news...

I have cancelled my deposit....

One day I hope to still buy the new Griffith but at the moment, after 3 1/2 years, my excitement has slowly drained away and with start of production now looking like 2020 I feel it's time to move on.

Maybe I will go for the supercharged convertible model in 2022!

Cheers guys, it is sad to do it but I am thinking one day I will have one but it will be the later perhaps revised version with more power and hopefully more aggressive styling.

I really do hope TVR get the new model off the production line and beyond the single model prototype stage where they seem to be stuck for 18 months.

For now I will have to enjoy my Camaro and Tuscan so life isn't to terrible lol

I do hope that Cosworth has already been paid for all the work it did in getting the engIne to meet all of Les's requirements, because it doesn't look as if there will be much left soon.

My understanding is that TVR has a reserve list for the standard car and when someone cancels their LE deposit everyone below moves up one and someone at the top of the reserve list joins the bottom of the LE list.

Stu, sad to see you go, but i get your point. Hope your still showing up here once in a while. Remember, it was your pic on the first page of this thread that got me into this in the first place wink

I'm strongly expecting things to speed up over the next months and also have the progress communicated.

@bomb

Don't know if your speaking out of interest, but i think if you get in contact with someone who wants to return you might directly take his position in the queue. But this requires confirmation/consultation from/with TVR first !

Cheers bullit and yes of course, will keep popping in to see how the discussion is going. I hope TVR can deliver and have every intention of buying the new Griffith one day be it a new convertible or Targa.

Just curious really. Watching from the sidelines. Having seen the car its growing on me. A lot. The people who persist in criticizing the car, the look of the 'face', the interior, the choice of wheels.......and so it goes on - just depresses me. I am genuinely excited about the new car, and can appreciate the problems they are having with Brexit, funding, testing, sourcing parts etc.....

I would love to see them be a resounding success.

All I have to do is convince my wife. How hard can it be ??

The thought of an LE launch car is tweeking my interest.
