So in 1977 and 1978 BL sold more Spitfires than TR7s?

From these negotiations, there was a plan submitted for TR7/8 to go to DeLoran to be manufactured in Belfast and sold (when face lifted with O-series) as cheaper DMCs. I think that plan had legs.

Shame the Broadside or Lynx did not find their way to DMC, better than all the pressings and tooling being melted down.

They'd have been up against the same problem as BL - the strong pound in the early Thatcher era made it impossible to sell anything other than high-end British cars profitably in the USA.

Perhaps JZDeL's plans might have gone better if he'd chosen dollar-zone Puerto Rica as his base as originally planned, rather than taken the NIDA's too-good-to-be-true offer.
