P90151079-MINI Superleggera Vision Roadster Concept

Yesterday the typically reliable Car magazine indicated that MINI’s Superleggera Roadster concept had been approved for a 2018 production date. Today the typically reliable Automotive News says not so fast. According to the industry publication:

BMW has not approved a roadster based on the Superleggera concept for its Mini brand and has not decided whether to add a “mini Mini” that would be built with Toyota, Mini’s top executive, Peter Schwarzenbauer, said. continued →

New Report on MINI’s Rumored Small Car

MotoringFile Sections: Rocketman, Rumor Feb 23rd, 2015 50 Comments

rocketman Car Magazine, one of the more authoritative sources these days on all things BMW has a new report out that neatly sums up the current rumor mill around MINI’s small car plans (aka the MINI Minor). We’ve done a ton of reporting on a Rocketman type of vehicle and even scooped the existence of MINI’s interest over five years ago. But now as things are becoming more real, details are starting to surface. continued →

For over five years we’ve reported (and reported and reported) on MINI’s internal desires to produce a smaller car than the R53, R56 and especially F56. In 2011 MINI gave us a view of what this car could be with the Rocketman concept. While the BMW Group could not make a business case of the concept initially, we learned back in October of last year that the city car had been in fact green-lighted by the Board. Yesterday, Automobile double-downed on our previous reports and revealed that MINI designers and engineers are actively working on the Rocketman, or should we say the MINI Minor. Automobile’s Georg Kacher also indicates that the Superleggera will join the ranks of the FXX generation. Although we can’t confirm the veracity of these claims, I don’t think we could have ended the week on a better note. continued →
