Surprising Success of Three Wheeler May Prompt Morgan to Make More Variants

If you love driving in its purest form, as well as old-fashioned mechanical engineering, with little or no electronic aid associated, then the attraction exuded by the Morgan Three Wheeler is undeniable. Furthermore, you don’t have to be an older gentleman to understand, appreciate and want one for yourself – this has even caught the company off-guard, as they were not expecting this much interest from younger people.

Autocar magazine now says that Morgan is pondering expanding its lineup of Three Wheeler model variants, and we may just get to see new engines and body style combinations. This has been spurred on by the expected 600 sales they think they’re going to have by the end of the year, meaning the three-wheeled car which looks like it’s from 1928 has beaten the 4/4, Plus 4 and Roadster.

In addition, the future seems to have finally dawned on Morgan too, and the same report from the UK publication suggests that the family-owned company is pondering whether to move to a single platform/chassis setup and adapt it for use with all their cars, or stick with their traditional steel and wood combination. In fact, they’ve already moved into the future, with the Plus 8 and Aero models, which use extruded aluminium chassis, like Aston Martin and Lotus, the latter using a resin bonding technique, completely doing away with welding ever since they started making the Elise, or “Project M1-Eleven” if you’ve watched the documentary on the Discovery Channel, from many years ago.

Do you think Morgan should move more into the future, and use more advanced building methods and materials – they will make more and most likely better-quality cars? Moreover, is there a point to make more Three Wheeler variants?

Note: To skip showing you the photos of the Three Wheeler that you’ve already seen, we replaced them with a nice full HD video drive through the Pyrenees.
