As we celebrate Mini's 50th birthday (OK, so it's only 9 with BMW, but let's not shift gears here) we get a look at what may - or may not - be a new concept for a MINI Coupe. Take a look... but don't say I didn't warn you!
They are saying - the blogosphere they, that is - that this new MINI Coupe is to be called the Cougar, on account of all the attractive older ladies who will buy it in hopes of tempting some young studs into going for a, um, drive. But the same blogosphere that produces real news also produces plenty of made-up stuff and even more opinions.
One guy said the top and bottom look like they came off of different cars. Another was "horrified" by the overhang of the roofline. And let's face it, MINI doesn't exactly have a good track record when it comes to coupe concepts. Witness:
I don't know. Maybe you like it. Maybe it won't matter. This is a test concept, and MINI is sure to hear a lot of opinions about it either way. Always fun to speculate, though.
