Hi
On the German Matra forum I have just read a small note which is based on a article in a Swiss newspaper says the following:
The PSA group wants to introduce a series of cheap and simple cars. The group do not want to use their existing brand names Citr÷en or Peugeot but they will reintroduce the brand name TALBOT for their cheap (and low quality) cars.

A shame for those of us who has TALBOT MATRA written on the back or front of our vehicles.

Yes, that's a shame really, to have the TALBOT name connected with low quality. I remember how the Simca brand was associated with cheapness back in the 70's (at least in our family, we had a Renault 16), and how the switch to Talbot in 1979 was intended to add some quality to the brand.

Well....

If a car is simple and cheap, it doesn┤t have to be low quality, at least I wont hope so. In my oppinion the quality in Citroen cant get any lower. My C8 spends most of its time in the workshop. When it runs it is a great ride, but my god, it costs a lot of money.  But my old, simple and cheap Matras hardly never gives me any trouble..... but they are of corse also from before the name was changed from Simca to Talbot Wink
But It would be a shame if our "Talbots" will be connected with cheap, low quality cars. Cry

Provides they don't use SIMCA, I'm fine.

This might even be good, they will have to provide support for my Solara.  Cheesy
