Nanjing Brings Outdated Car Production Back to Britain

The MG TF, a car so ridiculously out-of-date that it ended up in a Top Gear challenge, joining the company of the Maserati Merak, the VW Vanagon, the Porsche 924 and the 3rd Gen Camaro, has gone back into production. At the press of a button by Liang Baohua, Governor of China's eastern province of Jiangsu and Birmingham City Councilor Mike Whitby, the vaguely Paleozoic sportster began dumping itself off the production line at Longbridge, fulfilling Nanjing's promise to bring MG production back to Longbridge. We're not saying that the Chinese aren't a credible threat to the balance of global automaking power, but if this is how they start off, well, it's gonna take 'em a few more years to get it right.
