Caterham boss reveals plan to develop a supercar

Article by Christian A., on November 20, 2012

The Asian market is what the new partnership between Caterham and Renault is targeting with the production models that they’re planning to build. Tony Fernandes, the Caterham boss, wants the company to soon be Asia’s Porsche. This suggests that it will offer more mainstream models with the help of its collaboration with Renault.

He also revealed a plan to develop a supercar as soon as the brand has already offered a reputable lineup. Caterham has a lengthy experience and expertise in assembling race cars so it’s confident that it will be able to build an extraordinary supercar for the road. The engineering and design work on the Caterham/Alpine sports car have already begun.

A concept is scheduled to be revealed in 2013. Mike Gascoyne, former F1 technical director and current head of Caterham Technologies, said that this project benefits from Caterham’s knowledge on motorsport, carbonfibre, and aerodynamics. He added that he is tasked to basically commercialize its motorsport involvement and to show off its expertise in a halo car.
