Tom Purves - BMW
Last quote by Tom Purves
I like Triumph for personal reasons. I think they did a good job exploiting their export potential and later they were very avant garde in using Michelotti, the Italian design house. It's an unappreciated part of the British motor industry. There are certainly no plans at BMW to do that and it's far too busy with Mini and Rolls-Royce to consider it. But I'm not so sure that BMW wouldn't consider selling if the right approach was made and it looked like a viable project that would do justice to the marque.feedback

It was a record year, actually it was a record year after record year recently, and that is great for BMW, and I think it shows just how much interest there is in the premium car business here in the United States. We were 3 percent ahead of the market and that was great for us.feedback
