Does any one remember the BBC series where companies were visited by an industry 'efficiency guru' ?
Morgan was one such target & after inspection the 'guru' stated in so many words that if Morgan do not exit the 19th century fast they would go out of business.
I believe Morgan heeded the words to some extent dragging the company kicking & screaming into the 20th/21st century with more up to date production techniques, drive lines & materials but still retained the hand crafted element.
I fear that CC on the other hand may have not changed that much over the intervening years & could still be quoted as a 'boutique' or 'cottage' industry' ?!

CC will need to change if entering the EV market.
At least they won't have to worry about radiators and cooling systems.
Remember it well Geoff ,forgot the name of the bloke ,bough a book on him ,think he died a while ago now ,and when you look at a £45000 seven you build yourself ,,then CC. Are making one hell of a profit on there cars or the company is badly run ,,look what else you can get for that money ,with plenty of goodies included,
Sir John Harvey Jones ?
First thing he said to the Morgan folk was that with an 18 month waiting list they should put the prices up.
Bought it from Brands Hatch Morgans in '97. Paid £23000. It was new with 23 mls on the clock. The guy who ordered it waited 8yrs. Worst car I ever owned.

Bet you made some money on it when you sold it ?
No I didnt.
Well , as it is open season on Malvern Link's finest (or should that be migliore given its current ownership?) I will mention again the fact that in 20 years of Sevening I never had one Morgan owner wave back , or even acknowledge I was in the same post code . Unlike sundry Porsche ,Ferrari , Jaguar , MG , Lotus and TVR drivers ..
But I still love these
