Auto Express report.
One is on the up, the other is currently down and out - but are two of the most famous sports car manufacturers in Britain about to join forces?
Rumours are rife that TVR bosses are poised to launch an audacious bid to take what's left of MG from the gloom of the administrator and restart production. But that's not all; the plan would see the firm quitting its seaside factory in Blackpool, Lancashire, and moving lock, stock and barrel to the mothballed Longbridge site in Birmingham.
The amazing story is one of several in circulation about what's going to happen to MG Rover and its axed workforce. But this prediction of the future has been given a boost in credibility from an unlikely but highly placed source. Auto Express has learned that one of the most senior people involved with the failed Midlands company has thrown his weight behind the deal. He won't go public with his views, but is understood to have first-hand evidence of the ambitious plan.
