TVR's may not have been the most reliable sports cars, but what I always admired about them was their uncompromising styling. When most sports car or supercar manufacturers started being conservative in the design department during the 90's, TVR came out with some of the most radical designs of the last couple of decades. Most sports car makers have lost their design edge, the bean counters are telling them to tame down so that they can shift more units. Porsche are just plain boring to look at, they haven't changed in 50 years, Lambo have dulled down since Audi took over, and Ferrari must have taken on the designer that BMW sacked, you know, the man responsible for the new 6 and 7 series, Z4 ..etc.
The two affordable sports cars that I have always wanted are the 308/328 series and 5.0 Griffith. I've had the Ferrari, maybe I should go out and get a Griff now in memory of Trevor Wilkinson.
