Chris Harris Takes the Morgan 3 Wheeler and Caterham 7 Out for a Spin

Morgan 3 Wheeler Chris Harris

The Morgan 3 Wheeler is cool. Absolutely cool. If Matt Smith’s Doctor drove a car, it would be the Morgan, and he would have the golden trifecta of fez, bow tie, and 3 Wheeler to make him the coolest guy in the universe. Chris Harris is also cool. Harris does a fantastic job testing Porsche 918 Spyders and Mercedes SLS Electric Drives long before anybody else has the opportunity. Join the two, and Harris gives his impressions on a car that he says, “…deconstructs driving as we know it, and offers a completely different set of solutions.” He discovers that the 3 Wheeler isn’t flawless, especially as speed increases, but he realizes that bombing down the side of a hill isn’t what the the was made for anyway. In the following feature, he also reviews the Caterham 7, an open-air sports car that is down on creature comforts but excels in the corners.

About Cameron Rogers

Cameron Rogers is the founder and lead writer at Downshift Autos, the only automotive blog on the Internet*. Born in the back of an AMC Gremlin, Cameron vowed to never let this extraordinarily embarrassing detail define him, so help him God. He drives a GTI but absolutely will not shut up about it if somebody asks. He will not hesitate to let people know that no, they shouldn't get a Porsche 911 when a Morgan 3 Wheeler is so obviously the superior choice. He is obsessed with the seats of a Carrera GT and the steering wheel of a Fisker Karma. He once sat in the driver's seat of a Tesla Model S, his greatest accomplishment to date. He is just now realizing that writing an autobiography, however miniscule, in the third person is odd and unnerving. *As of this writing, Cameron has been informed that there are, in fact, many websites and blogs centered around cars and car culture. He regrets his grievous error.
