maybe they may expand the brand even further...with a SINGLE seat mini, aimed at enthusiast...?!@#!*Y#...right...
I've been a fan of MINI since day one. That said, the new coupe and roadsters are just about as ugly and ridiculous as a car could get. The coupe looks like it's been stepped on by Godzilla and the roadster looks like a baby's shoe. MINI should have learned from GM's mistake with the convertible Geo Metro, never make a hatch go topless!
Uhmmm... No thanks. I will keep my 2007 MX-5 (Miata) hardtop convertible . Better quality, better realiability and better car period. Sorry Mini... you lose on this one !
It looks great. But that's because it's practically identical to the standard Mini. This won't succeed unless they can differentiate it more from the other Mini cars.
I think BMW/Mini would be well advised to leave this one in Europe.. there isn't enough visual distinction to justify it alongside the regular convertible, at least the coupe has a distinct (if disgusting) styling cue, this is just the convertible with a smaller cabin. It would be a narrow niche in the US at best.. but BMW hasn't exactly shied away from bringing oddities to market lately.
I'm maxed-out on Mini-anything. Like BMW, same sausage in different sizes. With poor quality and topped-out sales in the US, maybe it's time to consider some change.
