Hi all. Just wondered if there is a place to find out if the M500 is progressing at all. The Noble Website appears stagnant and info on Wikipedia doesn't sound promising here-
Quote: The Noble M500 was revealed at the Goodwood festival of speed 2018, the model shown was a full size mock up that hinted at what the final design may look like, however with no mechanical components revealed and no interior designs shown, it was clear that the car was some way off a production ready design. To date, no further details about the M500 have been revealed, leading to speculation that the project has been cancelled:Unquote
Not sure if I have the funds for a Noble, but I have the reg M500GB for my TVR Griff 500 and am selling the car. Sounds like I might as well leave the reg with it.
Would be great to see a Noble M500 on the open roads one day........

From what I understand the M500 project is under way , there is a mule doing drivetrain work etc and the factory is working hard ! I guess it takes time !

Ah yes, just ask all those with a deposit on the new TVR Griffith chewing their nails. It's good to know the M500 is progressing, thanks for the update, it might mean the current Noble owners look for a new model and the older, more affordable models start swopping hands.

The M500 is a interesting problem for the factory , do you follow the ethos of the M12 and produce a parts bin cheaper car or go the whole way and produce a m600 type unit !
I also think price is going to be critical this time around , with the rise of interest in track day cars it would be nice to see a stripped out car with a price of 70K !!

Time will tell but I hope we see something next year !!
The TVR situation has been a disaster !!
