WhatCar.com is reporting in an interview with BMW/MINI leadership that while the recent BMW investment in UK manufacturing may spawn as many as 10 MINI variants, the Rocketman Concept will not be among them. While clever doors and composite materials featured in the Rocketman Concept will see the light of day in future MINI models, Ian Robertson put it pretty bluntly:

The Rocketman was a concept and we have no plans to take it further, but features of it will appear on future Minis.

No word yet on if this kills the entire MINI city car program, but we will do our best to find out more.
