Peering Into The Future Of The MINI Convertible


MotoringFile takes a look at what the future holds for the present generation MINI Convertible. It says, in part:
It may surprise more than a few but MINI intends to continue producing the convertible for another three years. MINI’s plan all along has been to produce the R57 convertible until late 2014 when the switch-over to the F57 next generation MINI convertible will take place. That would give the R57 a standard (in BMW terms) six year life-cycle typically needed to make the car profitable.
