Nanjing Automobile's plans to bring the MG Rover firm back to life might not work out after all, reports Reuters. The lack of a firm deal on producing vehicles is the prime reason for the newly-arisen doubt about Nanjing, which originally promised 2,000 jobs for Brits and 80,000 cars within the next five years in addition to what it already builds in China.

The fact that the Chinese company hasn't even been able to finalize its plans with GB Sports to produce less than 100 units a year of the MG SV sports car "speaks volumes," says an unnamed Reuters source. Due to start up costs necessary to begin producing MG Rover vehicles in Britain again, it's likely that if this rebirth for the brand works out at all, we'll probably be getting Rovers coming out of China instead.
