MG Rover Not Dead?

Autoblog is reporting (via UK mag. AutoCar) that car production will resume at Longbridge.

Their guess is that the car will be the MG TF mid-engined roadster.

From AutoCar:

"Chinese firm Nanjing Automotive has confirmed that it is to go ahead with car production at the former MG Rover factory in Longbridge, which closed last year with the loss of around 6000 jobs.

"Nanjing, which has a 33-year lease on part of the Longbridge site, will also build cars in China. The firm is believed to be keen to keep Longbridge because of the paint shop there - an expensive facility which is difficult to move."
