This is of course just part of the overall plans for Caterham. During a recent interview with evo, Caterham boss Tony Fernandes said: ‘Caterham can’t survive with just a sports car model line-up. We have to do a lightweight, fun hatchback car and a crossover of some description. How we make these true to Caterham values is what we’re grappling with right now.’
