I read a post on this site a few years ago that seemed to ring pretty true. I forget the exact numbers but it was something like: "Comparing a Mini to a Porsche a Mini is 80% of the fun for 20% of the cost".

I was into VW Bugs in the 80's and early 90's. Many Porsche parts were interchangeable.

Like Minis, Bugs were roomier than they appeared, and a lot of fun to drive (though much slower with their 1600 cc naturally aspirated engine). Their wheel base is 2" shorter than my gen 1 Mini.

Hi Mark. Me too, If I crash I want it to be sliding off backwards.

FWIW, the Helmet is listed for sale over on the MINI Exchange FB page. Once it's gone my garage has room for a Porch.

Rapidly losing interest in small cars.
Hope this isn't going to be the LWB version of the Porch Panamera.
