Reston's Vibrant Economy Part 6: No Boxters for you!

Rolls-Royce, the British company whose North American headquarters once called Reston home, is coming back as part of a plant expansion elsewhere in the state. Unfortunately, the plant manufactures jet engines, not cars, so the Porsche Boxter will remain the Dulles Corridor car of choice for the upwardly mobile.

This is not the first time Rolls-Royce has done business in Virginia. Its North American headquarters moved from Reston to Chantilly in 2000, Guyette said, and is returning to Reston in 2008. The HQ employs about 100 people.
Guess they missed the Macaroni Grill.

Meanwhile, ComScore, the Reston-based Web metrics company that issues projections about how awesome the Christmas retail season will be, has canceled an add-on stock offering following its IPO earlier this year, presumably because its stock has fallen from a high of $42 to somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 bucks or so. No Boxters for them, either!

Have we mentioned that the Tall Oaks Giant is still closing?
