As evangelized in Back to the Future Part II, 2015 is supposed to be the year of hoverboards and flying cars (Note: If you don’t know what we’re talking about, stop reading this post and go watch the entire BTTF series now). Sadly, 2015 will probably not be the year of flying DeLoreans, or more appropriately, flying MINIs. With that in mind, we asked our readers last month in what ways could MINI innovate.
