Well, that isn't correct.

The MGF was produced by Rover Group from 1995 while it was owned by BMW.  MG 
Rover was formed after the sale of the marque by BMW to the Phoenix Group in 
2000, and they continued to produce the MGF.  It became the TF from 2002 
until 2005 when MG Rover collapsed.  The TF was based on the MGF but had 
re-engineered suspension and engines, both MGF and TF up to this time were 
entirely assembled at Longbridge.  Nanjing bought the name in 2007 and in 
2008 started producing the TF again with very few changes, this was the CKD 
kit only finally assembled at Longbridge.  There was a much bigger 
difference between the Rover Group/MG Rover MGF and the MG Rover TF than 
there was between the MG Rover TF and the Nanjing TF.  The Chinese TF was 
almost exactly the same as the MG Rover TF.
