End of the Line for MG TF

Production of the two seat MG TF is set to end this year after a run (in fits and starts) over 15 years.

The mid engine sports car was originally introduced as the MGF in 1995 and brought the MG marque back into the world of lower priced open sports cars after the end of MG RV8 production. While we never had the car here in the US, it was still on the wish list of many American MG enthusiasts. MG-Rover even sent me a packet of MGF literature by request along with a letter stating that, "regretfully the MGF is not currently available in your market."

I had the opportunity to see several MGFs during a European business trip in 2001. I was impressed with its appearance and proportion "in the flesh" so to speak. It would have made a great American market re-entry car for MG. 

Save your pennies, y'all - you'll be able to legally import a 1995 model in 2020.
