Currently reading: Westfield Sports Cars enters administration after 39 years
Caterham rival, which also developed autonomous vehicles and owned Chesil, ended 2021 with less than £26k

Westfield Sports Cars has entered into administration. 

The maker of stripped-out two-seater kit cars was set up in 1983 as a competitor to Caterham and went to build a range of models, most sticking to the blueprint of the original Lotus 7.

Based in Kingswinford, west of Birmingham, it had recently expanded with the purchase of Chesil, the maker of Porsche 356 Speedster copies, in 2019. 

It also set up Westfield Autonomous Vehicles to make self-driving pods.

Both Chesil and Westfield Autonomous Vehicles have also entered administration, according to identical notices posted on their respective websites.
