At the end of August, the maker of the Apollo, German carmaker Gumpert, declared insolvency after an unsuccessful campaign into the Chinese market. It joined Artega and Melkus at the courthouse, the trio of boutique makers succumbing to violent economic waters that are troubling even the biggest fish.
Winding Road just relayed some info from the newest issue of Autocar, regarding supercar maker, Gumpert. Apparently, the firm is working on a new model said to be "less powerful, more relaxed, and less track-oriented." The brief mention is in the March 21 issue of Autocar, and quotes Apollo builder Francois Sittler. No details about whether the car will be based on the current Apollo or not. We're sure we'll get more details before the car shows up three years from now.
