Not so fast, Okies! That's the word from China's Nanjing Motors, new owner of MG-Rover. Last week, word came down that the company is reportedly planning a factory in Oklahoma to build new MG sports cars for the states, with the first models coming in two years. But at the British Motor Show, the company distanced itself from the news like it was 100-year-old oyster sauce.
'We have only signed a memorandum of understanding with a local partner (in the US) as yet,' said Jianwei. 'We might have three production bases. It is only a thought that we might have Oklahoma in addition to China and the UK.' "
