The Morgan Three-Wheeler is losing its V-twin in favor of a single electric motor for the new EV3 concept. More than just a one-off, the company plans to put this sporty EV roadster into production in late 2016.
Season six of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee premieres on June 3. The recently released trailer provides a hint at some of what's coming, including a Lamborghini Countach, Aston Martin DB5, Ferrari 308, and more. Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jim Carrey are appearing as guests.
Morgan and Balvenie still make their products in the UK the old-fashioned way: by hand, using old-world methods. Now the two have come together for a special roadster, which fortunately doesn't run on single malt.
Morgan has a thorough update for the 2015 Aero 8 on display at the Geneva Motor Show. It features revised styling and a more rigid aluminum frame. However, the company is retiring the Aero SuperSports and Coupe from its lineup.
Listen closely to the sound of the engine in this latest teaser video from Morgan and you can make out the tell-tale noise of a forced-induction V8, suggesting the company has a supercharged Aero in store for the Geneva Motor Show next month.
Three years ago, Morgan reintroduced the Three Wheeler after a hiatus of almost six decades. While the family-owned British automaker initially planned to only make 400 or 500 of the trike roadsters, it quickly emerged as its most popular model.
Evo is back at it with its car-versus-bike races, following up on the all-British Jaguar/Triumph battle from last weekend with an (almost) all-BMW affair, pitting the German brand's stylish and vintage-looking R Nine T against the British-built, BMW-powered Morgan Plus 8 Speedster.
Morgan has been around for 105 years, and still builds its cars largely the way it has from the beginning. So seeing a new Morgan debut is a bit of a rarity, but that's what we have in front of us here.
The Morgan Three-Wheeler certainly isn't the fastest performance vehicle money can buy, but it might be one of the coolest. With its V-twin engine hanging out front and styling like nothing else on the road, it draws stares from anyone who sees it and likely a lot of grins from the driver too. As fun as it may be, the quirky roadster is being hit with another brake-related recall, and this one is nearly as absurd as the last.
The Morgan Motor Company is the consummate automotive industry survivor. While a name like Triumph is fading, Morgan is still is in business building a relatively small number of sports cars annually. This year is a big milestone for the company. Its Pickersleigh Road factory in England has been building cars for the last 100 years. To celebrate the centenary, Morgan is launching the new Plus 8 Speedster.
Morgan is really pretty good at making nifty little videos that showcase the nifty little car company it is. The English fashioner of wood-framed automobiles and three-wheeled jitneys has done it again in commemoration of more than 100 years building cars at its factory in Pickersleigh.
While its lightweight roadsters can give both driver and passenger the sensation of speed with the wind rushing through their hair, things at the Morgan Motor Company tend to move rather slowly. The company has been around for over a hundred years, and still produces most of its models the way it always has. So when it announces even the most minor revisions to one of them, it's a relative revolution – even if it's not likely to make many headlines.
Porsche is often mocked for only slightly evolving the look of the 911 over its 50 years of history, but compared to the cars from the Morgan Motor Company, the Germans look like constant innovators. For the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Morgan plans to bring the most powerful version of its Plus 4 ever, along with the upgraded 2014 Three Wheeler.
There are any number of adjectives we could come up with to describe the Morgan 3 Wheeler – fun, exotic, playful, retro – but we'd never have thought to compare it to a horse. Interestingly, that's exactly what the blokes from XCAR in the UK came up with while testing out the little British V-twin-powered plaything.
Whether the board of the Morgan Motor Company was justified or not in ousting its former chief executive from its ranks, you could understand that Charles Morgan might take a defiant stand. He is, after all, the grandson of the company's founder, and before the board stepped in, it was his show to run. But don't expect Charles to be starting up a rival outfit any time soon.
