Why was the Stag not called a TR

Martins Stag

Recommended Posts

There is a very nice magazine out in WH Smiths and it goes through all the TR's and documents them. One thought that sprung to mind is I know how the Stag got its name but was there ever any thought of calling it a TR?

I suppose you could say that it is not a sports car and it is a four seater and therefore does not fit with being a TR. It was on sale at the same time as the TR6 too. Or was the Stag being pitch as above the TR's?

Any thoughts

The Stag was not sold as a sports car, more of a grand tourer. 

Add to that, prior to the TR7, the TRs all changed either running gear or body from the previous model, not both. So there was a passing in of genes. Of course, 70's BL changed all that.
