PostHeaderIcon Morgan Celebrates The 110th Anniversary: Learn About 6 Most Important Cars It Has Produced

Morgan Motor Company celebrates the 110th anniversary next year. That’s more than a century, folks. I think this company definitely deserves massive attention as it is basically a love story written in pain, blood, and cars so amazing that every car enthusiast simply must fall in love with it.

It all started in 1909 when Henry Frederick Stanley Morgan installed a Peugeot engine in a tricycle he designed. Even then, in a time when small manufacturers produced a number of oddballs, his car was among the strangest with that small engine actually fitted at the front. It’s not surprising that Frederick maintained that eccentric style throughout the years. It all translated into the modern times, and now Morgan maintains that eccentric character despite only being a small family business.

Yet, with humble beginnings, but illustrious history, Morgan never really broke among the big ones. It stayed a niche producer, and after more than a century, it is among the best in its segment.

I will lead you through its history and present some of the most important cars Morgan ever endeavored to produce. Of course, we will start with the first one – the 1909 Morgan Runabout. The one with a Peugeot engine inside. Don’t worry, and I will also spark your imagination with the latest special edition cars the company has produced too.

PostHeaderIcon Jay Leno Makes Guest Appearance On The Simpsons: Video

Jay Leno’s love for cars is very much well-publicized. In fact, a case can be made of him being the world’s most famous celebrity car enthusiast, a title that turned out to be pretty useful for Leno when he was invited to appear in an episode of The Simpsons.

Okay, Leno himself didn’t exactly appear in the episode but he did lend his voice to his yellow-skinned, Simpsonized counterpart, who appeared dressed in his usual denim-on-demin attire. The episode has already aired in the U.S., but for those who missed it, Leno’s role in the show tugged into his obsession for cars as he drives up on a Morgan Three Wheeler owned by Homer Simpson. Once he sees the car, Leno gets out of his 1973 Citroen DS Pallas, rings the bell of the Simpsons’ home and immediately offers to buy the Three Wheeler from the bathrobe-wearing Simpsons patriarch.

I’m not going to spoil anything that the video doesn’t show, but it does slip out a scene of Homer holding a wad of cash as he watches his Three Wheeler get shipped off to Leno’s “secret underground car depository.”

To his credit, Leno nailed the voice-over work in the episode, although it might have something to do with his character being, well, himself. At the very least, it’s a much smoother work than his past dabbles into voice-over work. Does anybody remember him as Fast Tony, the fast-talking armadillo from Ice Age: Meltdown who peddled anything he could find?

PostHeaderIcon Morgan Will Bring Electric 3 Wheeler At Goodwood Festival of Speed

It’s a well-known scientific fact that the Morgan 3 Wheeler is the greatest car in the world. By modern standards, this tiny roadster with a missing wheel is archaic. With an 82 horsepower motorcycle engine, it’s not particularly fast. Its chassis is constructed using techniques from the 1930s. It doesn’t have an infotainment system or even an AM radio. Those might sound like negatives, but brought together they make for one of the most fun and engaging cars on sale today.

Now Morgan has a new 3 Wheeler called the EV3, that ditches the V-twin engine and replaces it with an electric motor and battery pack in the rear. Morgan says the electric drivetrain is good for 75 kW, the equivalent of 100 horsepower, and has range of about 150 miles. At a featherweight 992 pounds, it’s also a good bit lighter than the gas-powered 3 Wheeler, which is about 160 pounds heavier.

The lack of a V-twin hanging off the front helps simplify styling, and the polished-aluminum body and disc front wheels make it look like a shrunken version of something you might see streaking across the Bonneville Salt Flats. Overall, the subtle, yet effective changes give a sort of 1950s-retro-futurist feel.

Only a concept for now, the EV3 will be shown later this month at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed. It’s currently in development and a production version is planned for the end of 2016. Like the regular 3 Wheeler, Morgan says production EV3s will be bespoke-built to order.
