Morgan Motor Company – Our View
Every day at TorqueAbout HQ our inboxes are filled with an array of press releases and information detailing the latest advancements in the automotive world. Some are exciting, some are intriguing and many are just mundane. Then there are those odd few that make you shout aloud at your computer screen in disbelief.
That happened earlier this week with the revelation that there has apparently been a mutiny in the boardroom of the Morgan Motor Company and their eponymous leader Charles Morgan has been unceremoniously ousted from the helm of his family company.
Ever since the news broke, the internet has been awash with support for Charles Morgan from customers and staff alike, and with good reason. Under his leadership, Morgan has never been stronger or more innovative, and one of the main appeals of owning a Morgan is that you’re buying into the family heritage.
Let’s be honest, there is no shortage of other manufacturers trying to tempt you but Morgan has always been a little bit different – in fact it’s totally unique, there is no other car manufacturer like it in the world and without Charles Morgan as the figurehead many fans of the marque may start to wonder if the Morgan Motor Company they love is not quite what it used to be.
I was lucky enough to visit Morgan earlier in the year to test the Morgan 3-Wheeler and take a tour round the factory. Thousands tour the factory each year with practically everyone coming away being struck by the energy that emanates round the site, and wondering which family heirlooms they could cash in to get their hands on one of these magnificent hand crafted machines.
As you’ll see from the statement above, Charles is appealing the decision and I’m sure he genuinely appreciates the support of the public and the Morgan employees, to whom he has created job security and a company to be proud to work for. Lets all get behind him.
You can show your support for Charles and his loyal members of staff by signing the petition at the top of this page calling for his re-instatement to the board, and by sharing this story with your contacts online. We’ll publish the number of signatories but please be assured that individual names will not be listed online to protect the identities of Morgan Motor Company employees and others associated with the company who may not wish to be publicly named.
Let me give an analogy as to what I hope the board will now be doing – flooring the accelerator in a 3-Wheeler whilst at standstill on a wet racetrack. The result – a rapid U-turn is performed.
