In an interview with CarMagazine, The budget-minded, small batch sports car maker Artega announced its future plans. After the GT ends its run, Artega will build a smaller model that will have a lower price and the ability to be exported to the U.S. by 2010.
The new model will feature a lighter and more economical four-cylinder engine. Also, by 2010 Artega will launch a soft-top version of the current Artega GT. The Artega factory will officially open in September 2008 when the first dealer demonstrators are to roll off the line. By the end of the year, the batch of limited-edition ‘Intro 2008’ models will be completed, plus perhaps 50 built-to-order customer cars.
