Mini Caught Testing Coupe

http://jalopnik.com/#!5787701/lightl...kes-to-the-405

Not gonna lie guys, this thing just caught my attention in a pretty big way, maybe this is a sign that the market will be exploding soon. We can only hope.

The concept version looks great, like a super cheap Porsche...but FWD.

I wouldn't buy it because it doesn't have back-seats. As useless backseats might be in a car like this (or the FT-86) there's always a way to Tetris a friend in there when necessary.

I wasn't sure if it was fwd or not, oh well. And i have a lot of experience with the tetris method. I had a 2001 dakota sport, yeah dont laugh too hard, and a 10" subwoofer set up behind the driver seat. Somehow i managed to fit myself and 5 of my friends into that truck. Lucky me, i had all the room i needed being the driver

my poor misguided baby, sold her a while ago, its a shame she couldnt stay together for more than a month without extensive shop work

Mini (BMW) needs to remember that John Cooper was also the guy that figured out the MR drivetrain would dominate F1. THAT would be an interesting Mini...
