Caterham wants to become the Porsche of Asia in the long run, company boss Tony Fernandez has claimed. Caterham is eyeing a super car especially for the Asian market along with the mainstream vehicles and this is a long term project initiated by the company. Caterham is currently processing the viability of the project and as a result tie ups and mergers are being considered.

Caterham has recently tied up with Renault to jointly produce a new vehicle to be on sale by both the companies and according to Fernandez, this is the first step towards a new and strong partnership between the firms.
Tony Fernandez also claimed that even though this project seems to be a little ambitious at the moment, in the long run Caterham will produce cars such as Porsche and that is the major target of the firm.

Fernandez was all praise for Porsche and he acknowledged the way the company has conducted itself with the launch of the Panamera and Cayenne in the Asian market. Caterham also expects the Asian market to be its biggest customer market and as a result the necessary surveys and arrangements are being made. The Asian market is one of the biggest import markets for SUVs and classy sedans at the moment and Caterham is well aware of the developments.

As of the moment, Caterham wants to strengthen its partnership with Renault and the priority is the success of the upcoming vehicles. Fernandez also expressed his desires of setting up a permanent base in the Asia. The local operation in Asia is a source of a lot of money and Caterham wants to tap this resource while it is still young. Caterham also has plans to launch a hyper car and that too within the next couple of years and the engineers are currently assessing the situation and room for such a launch.

Caterham is discussing the probabilities of developing a future affordable vehicle with Renault and the companies have not announced anything formally. Caterham is an experienced side when it comes to sports racing and carbon fiber technology thanks to its participation in different sporting events and as a result the vehicles offered by Caterham are among the best in class. There is absolutely no doubting the quality of the vehicles manufactured by Caterham and the vehicles are aerodynamic and ergonomic masterpieces.

The designing and engineering works on Alpine and Caterham products are expected to improve with the launch of the next generation vehicles and the partnership with Renault. People can look forward to a better class of vehicles from Caterham and that too quite soon. The concept of the vehicle could be showcased as early as mid 2013. However, either Renault or Caterham is yet to confirm these reports.

However, the vehicles from Alpine and Caterham are expected to look completely different in terms of exterior designing and interior styling. People are expecting a lot from Caterham with the passage of time and the firm hopes to live up to the expectations.
