Color us skeptical, but here's the latest on British sportscar builder TVR. Autocar is reporting that TVR plans to develop three new models, replacing its current Sagaris, Tuscan and Cerbera. The new models will use both TVR's own inline six-cylinder engine and an outsourced V8. In the vaporware department, a future luxury supercar is rumored for a couple of years down the road.

But wait, there's more... a TVR spokesperson says the currently factory-less company plans to make 5,000 cars a year - more than twice its previous peak output. Apparently this bumper crop of new TVRs is destined for new markets targeted by CEO Nikolai Smolensky, including Dubai, Malaysia and Singapore.

A new manufacturing site could be located in Wales, the Midlands, or "overseas," but in any event, production won't be up and running until this time next year.
