Hm, then it wouldn't be just one car that is not built, but three?

Well worth a trip down memory lane with LE talking to Pistonheads on the 12th June 2016.

Here's a couple of tasters: 'new Welsh factory exists and is ready to be fitted out' and, 'There will be phantom building of the cars to check the processes by the end of 2017 for the start of production.'

Aww, bless.

How anyone still has a deposit in or believes his utter tripe is beyond me.

It is reported by Autocar - the longest-established and most trustworthy car magazine - so must be true. Or else Autocar is no longer the responsible source it once was.

Well just goes show LE the ultimate bullster get’s in on the act presenting a trophy. Him being the Chairman of a car company that has produced 1 car.

No doubt the ponytail will increase his street cred NOT

I sense the mood here swinging from hope to frustration and anger..... I'd like to say this debacle has wasted a lot of my time over the last few years but the truth is I've enjoyed the banter and the many off topic discussions to the point that that's the only reason I still have this thread in 'My Stuff' biggrin Even Gazza is amusing at times... wink

You can't fool all of the people all of the time.

My main concern is anything they've got in the pipeline would now be hopelessly outdated by the time it reaches market.

Electric? The idea of TVR meeting and beating the likes of Hyundai, VAG and Tesla at their own game is beyond laughable and therefore damages perceptions of the whole enterprise.

To be honest, they'd struggle to produce a credible dodgem car for a fairground.

It does seem like Les is living in a little bit of a cloud cuckoo land.

Electric cars have moved on so much in the last five years with the manufacturers huge budgets for their research and development.

As you said, they cannot possibly produce a marketable, competitive car.

Did anybody see LE presenting a trophy at the Formula E London ePrix?

He just loves it doesn’t he, swanning about with his Rodney Trotter ponytail and TVR baseball cap, trading off past glories that had absolutely nothing to do with him.

I’m getting to the stage where I’m going to have to actively avoid returning this forum, every time I think of this debacle it ruins my day. hehe

But there were stickers….

Joking apart I wonder what others outside of the TVR world make of it. It’s like me swanning around in a baseball cap promoting my new company called Brabham and people congratulating me on such a successful F1 story.
