Mart spotted this over on MotoringFile Smile

At the NAIAS this year in Detroit, MINI featured the new Roadster — their latest addition to the MINI model lineup. For those keeping score at home, that brings the total number of unique MINI configurations up to six:

• Hardtop
• Clubman
• Convertible
• Coupé
• Roadster
• Countryman

Count the production version of the Paceman concept due out next year and that total climbs to seven. However, MINI is far from done at lucky seven. Dr. Kay Segler, head of MINI worldwide gave the the automotive press the magic number of ten MINI models by the end of the decade. What could those other three models be?

I know it probably wont happen, but i can't help thinking of a 1.4 supercharged or turbocharged in a rocketman, the thing would fly! Very Happy

MINI said over a month ago the Rocketman is a no go - only producing models that fit the same wheel base/share it with the new BMW 1-series

Sorry to put a dampener on this but can Mini really sell that many more at the prices they are charging especially the upper end of the range ... will there will come a time when the high prices start to detere purchasers?
