MG Has Dreams of a US Return With a New Sports Car

But dreams don't always come true.

There was a time when MG sports cars were commonplace on American roads. Although many old MGs are still running today (when not leaking oil in their owners’ garages), the once British-owned carmaker hasn’t been in the US market for years. That may change soon if its new Chinese-owners have anything to do with it. According to a new report from Edmunds, MG is seriously considering re-entering the sports car market with a new roadster.

More than likely it would compete against the Mazda MX-5. MG would very much like to sell cars in the US once again, and it figures that a new roadster would be the ideal way to generate excitement. At the moment, MG sells cars in Europe and China, but they’re nothing at all like those classic MGBs and Midgets. Examples include the MG 3 supermini and the MG6 fastback sedan. This isn’t the first time we’ve heard that MG is considering a new sports car, only now the automaker has begun a design exercise at its Shanghai design studio. In other words, it’s serious about the project. We’ll just have to wait and see whether this plan will come to fruition.
