Considering how many tips on this story we've gotten, you guys obviously know how much we admire TVR (in philosophy if not execution) from afar. The bad news from Blackpool — a turn downward in the company's roller-coaster ride — is that TVR's planning to move production out of the UK, contrary to an earlier report indicating TVR would continue producing its muscular coupes in country. We're expecting the company's teenaged Russian billionaire owner to move production somewhere beyond the pale, potentially Slovenia, Poland or even Russia, to reduce costs. Now, how do we break the news to Trevor Wilkinson?
