Russian media outlet R-Sport reports that sports car maker Marussia Motors has stopped making road cars and its employees in Moscow have "left the company en masse and joined a government-run technical institute." That suggests there won't be an evolution of the Cosworth-powered B2, the firm's second sports car that, two years ago, supposedly sold out its limited-to-500 run. That also suggests the F2 SUV and all those extra models have also been called in to meet the dodo.
By all accounts, Marussia is just another exotic automaker hoping to sell a few supercars but just as likely to disappear into obscurity. Except that it hasn't, and may not for some time.
