Mini Rocketman Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

According to Auto Express, the decidedly adorable Mini Rocketman Concept from this year's Geneva Motor Show might be headed for production as a new entry-level model within the next few years. If the rumors are to be believed, we could see the new mini Mini on the streets as early as 2014.

Auto Express suggests that a production version of the Rocketman could share a lot of its underpinnings with BMW's new i3 city car. Executives were quick to dismiss the notion that a Mini vehicle would be produced under BMW's "i" division, but that, "the technology we are developing for the 'i' family of cars will certainly be made available for the rest of the BMW Group." Makes sense.

Of course, normal petrol and diesel powertrains would be offered in the smallest Mini offering, peraps of the three-cylinder turbocharged variety. In any case, we still have a few years before a production Rocketman will see the light of day, so things could change drastically before then.

      is it just me or does this look like a sockmonkey and a character from the movie Cars had a baby together?

        I know! The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the picture was that it was yet another release of characters for Cars 2.

      Put it in my driveway for 14k and I'll buy one after college. Give me AWD 6spd manual and no back seats and i'm good.

        Dude, if you're in anyway even thinking that AWD is a possibility for this thing, wake up. The entire fun of this will be a tiny car, why bog it down with an unnecessary AWD system?

          trippycake, you are aware there's an AWD version already on sale, right? Check out the Countryman.

          From my understanding, this Rocketman is smaller than the standard Cooper, while the Countryman is larger than a Cooper. I may be mistaken, but I'm fairly sure there's significantly more of a difference than just the driven wheels.

      I feel like mini has pushed the cute mini look about as far as it will go. Its a nice car don't get me wrong but the design is getting tired. just an opinion.

      I love it! I was just thinking that the Mini Coupe is one of the ugliest cars I'd ever seen. But save for the tail lights and carbon fiber wheels, the Rocketman exterior looks good and is the right size, from doors to drawer. One can hope they fast track it with a performance engine option and a light body (along the lines of a 160 hp, 1.2 liter twin charged at 2000 lbs or less)... but I'm not holding my breath.

      if the production version is 50% like the concept version, I will definitely get one.
