Back in 1911 the Morgan Motor Company released a funky little three wheeled car powered by a single-cylinder engine that could transport two people in relative comfort. Originally designed as transport for H.F.S. Morgan, the companies founder, the little roadster was a hit and was put into production in 1912. The three-wheeler stayed in production for over 40 years going through various redesigns and engine configurations, with production finally coming to a halt in 1952.
Now it seems that Morgan is feeling a bit nostalgic, as it’s rumored that they are going to release a revised version of the Three-wheeler for 2011. The little runabout is said to be using a new Harley-Davidson 1800cc V-Twin that makes 100 hp at the rear wheel and gets to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. The transmission will be a 5-speed unit from the current generation Mazda5 which should help get the little bugger to a top speed of 115 mph. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been over 115 mph many times, I’m just not sure I’d like to do it in this thing. As of yet there is no pricing for the new Morgan, but rest assured that as soon as we get any new info, we’ll let you guys know.
