Rumormill: Mooted Mini Speedster could be beaten to market by Mini Coupe
According to MF, the coupe figures to be the fastest and tightest offering in BMW's Mini stable, with their source reportedly saying: "Think of this model as the [BMW] Z4 Coupe of the MINI line-up."
The coupe is expected to be based on the current R56 platform, and although there was apparently talk of making the car a John Cooper Works-only model, plans are now afoot to sell both standard Cooper and Cooper S versions in order to help parent BMW generate better fleet-wide fuel economy averages.
According to MotoringFile, Mini will probably debut the roadster in concept form in Frankfurt this Fall (as we reported earlier), but the fixed-head coupe is likely to beat it to market – even though that model doesn't figure to arrive until late 2012.
