Mini’s Minor resurgence

BRIT brand Mini is rumoured to be working on a revival of the Mini Minor, a vehicle that will reverse years of bloat under the stewardship of German owner BMW. Wheels sources are unwilling to confirm that a new two-seater spinning off the 2011 Rocketman concept (pictured) is back on the drawing board – allegedly in partnership with Toyota.

In other Mini news, the company announced it would cull its ‘coupe with a toupee’, the Roadster, in response to less-than-stellar sales of the quirky two-seater range.
