Lifan progress

I think it's a town on the Azerbajian western border near Armenia.

I heard that Lifan will introduce another sedan this September....
Am also wondering what has developed with the Tritec factory bid and the
Zakspeed sports car joint project???

"Whoever wrecks Lifan's brand, Lifan will wreck that person's rice bowl."

words displayed on factory banner

brand brand brand.......

Here I am answering my own question...
Anyway, for you Lifan fans out there, a reuters.com March 4th article reports that although Lifan wanted to buy the Tritec engine factory last year and to dismantle it for shipment back to China, the Brazilian government said no...., it wants the plant to stay in Brazil. Makes sense I guess...

As for my mention of the banner displayed at the Lifan plant, I think it was a response to Honda's taking Lifan to court over the use of the brand name attached to its motorcycles, Hongda. Honda won that one in December 2004, according to the South China Morning Post.

Anyone heard anything about the Zakspeed joint project?
