MINI Rocketman Concept To Become MINI Minor?

The Dallas Morning News reports on Toyota BMW cooperation and says, in part:
Mini Cooper apparently wants to get even smaller.

Though Mini already has a wide array of compacts in its lineup, the company might be teaming up with Toyota to build a smaller version of the Mini that would be called the Minor, according to German magazine Autobild.

A Mini spokesman declined to comment on the report, telling Automotive News Europe that it was “mere speculation.”

However, the German magazine included lots of specific information in its “speculation.”

The magazine said the Minor would be based on the Mini Rocketman concept unveiled at the 2011 Geneva auto show and would be more than a foot shorter than the basic Mini three-door hatchback.
