Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Reborn TVR Set to Reveal New Model at Goodwood Revival

In 2006, boutique British sports car manufacturer TVR produced its last automobile, entering receivership under then-owner Nikolay Smolensky. Despite later attempts by Smolensky and others to revive the brand, it wasn’t until 2013 that TVR received a new lifeline, under now-owner TVR Automotive Limited, which began working on a new model in early 2014. Three and a half years later, an all-new TVR will make its public debut at the Goodwood Revival in Chichester, England, on September 8.

TVR’s 2013 purchase was likely met with scorn by those loyal to the brand, as too many empty promises had been made in the past. Under the guidance of Les Edgar and John Chasey, the new TVR immediately established credibility by sorting out the mess that spare parts for past models had become. After acquiring inventories and licenses from a variety of dealers, TVR brought spare parts under one roof in 2014. A year later, the company announced that the new car was already under development with partner Gordon Murray Design. If that name sounds familiar, it should – after designing Formula 1 cars for Brabham, Gordon Murray was one of the driving forces behind McLaren’s road-going F1 supercar.

A famed British automaker is one step closer to reviving their legacy with a new sport car.
