Anyone ever heard whether Nanjing plans to import MG Rover's to the U.S.? I saw a new version of what used to be a MGB in America in a British car mag about 10 years ago and it looked pretty good. Retained a lot of that British micro-car charm and looked tight.

Most Americans would poo-poo the idea of buying a MG because of the lack of their crashworthiness, anyway. There would be a small audience, though. Triumphs were also quite popular here in the 60's and 70's with the TR-3, TR-4, TR-250 and TR-6.

Default SAIC Changes Its Name

From China Car Times.

Quote:
SHANGHAI Automotive Co Ltd, the listed unit of Chinaís biggest car maker, has been renamed Shanghai Automotive Group Co Ltd, marking the completion of an assets restructure of its parent, the company said in a statement yesterday.

Shanghai Auto, 83.83 percent owned by Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp, sold additional shares to the parent for taking its stake in two venture with General Motors Corp and Volkswagen AG. The move helped Shanghai Auto increase competitiveness by focusing more on car manufacturing instead of auto parts. Shanghai Auto is now responsible for making SAICís self-owned car models including Roewe 750 and other upcoming new products.

Default SAIC Boosts Investment, Challenging GM, VW in China

SOURCE: http://www.bloomberg.com
Seonjin Cha and Irene Shen
Nov. 29 (Bloomberg) -- SAIC Motor Corp., China's largest automaker, will increase spending to make cars of its own design, heightening competition with its partners General Motors Corp. and Volkswagen AG.
The company will spend at least 20 billion yuan ($2.7 billion) to develop between 20 and 30 new models by 2012, President Chen Hong said at a press conference in Shanghai today. That compares with an earlier plan to spend 13.7 billion yuan by 2010.
SAIC Motor is moving up from being a low-wage assembler of overseas brands and is developing five platforms, ranging from recreational vehicles to compact cars. The carmaker has purchased technology from the U.K. and South Korea to help with its own designs.
``It will take SAIC three to five years to build its own brand and catch up with overseas rivals,'' said Wang Liusheng, an analyst at China Merchants Securities Co. in Shenzhen. ``SAIC Motor has competitive edge over its overseas rivals with lower costs in parts purchasing.''
SAIC Motor rose 3.4 percent to 24.34 yuan at the close of trading in Shanghai. The shares have almost tripled this year.
China Growth
Car sales in China surged 24 percent to 7.15 million in the first 10 months of 2007 because of economic growth. The benchmark CSI 300 Index has more than doubled this year, fueling demand as more than three-fifths of Chinese stock-market investors buy new cars with their profits.
``China has become the most important market for all carmakers,'' said Wang. ``SAIC has great potential to develop in its own country.''
The carmaker expects group sales of more than 200 billion yuan this year, Chen said. The company is spending about 8 percent of sales on research and development.
The automaker expects to sell a total of 600,000 own-brand vehicles by 2010, including Roewe sedans.
SAIC Motor's parent in also in talks about a possible tie- up with Nanjing Automobile Group Co., the Chinese maker of MG cars, to expand its own-brand line-up.
``M&A is something you grasp when opportunities arise,'' said Chen. ``We'll continue to closely monitor market situations in China as well as overseas.''
