Here's my take on MINs thoughts. They want more sales. Doesn't take a rocket surgeon to figure that out. When they came out with the Countryman, I figured okay, lets go a bit bigger. It seems to be a positive move. I think they misread to success of the Countryman. Then along came the Paceman. While a neat vehicle, I didn't really figure out the niche it was aimed at. Then a along comes the Coupe and the Roadster. Neat cars, I agree, but I think they're dividing up the pie too much and basically stealing customers from other models within MINI as opposed to attracting significant numbers of new buyers. Thereby diluting sales for the Coupe, Paceman and Roadster. MINI isn't Chevrolet. They don't offer something for everyone. Maybe that's why Porsche doesn't make a pick up. Porsche is an enthusiast marque. So is MINI. MINI should continue listening to it's customers. How many of us, percentage wise, buy additional MINIs? Don't forget the girl you brought to the dance. You tried rolling out additional models. You built a lot of cars, but at the expense of total overall sales. NOW, you're trying to make your models more "mainstream". Again, that isn't what MINI is about. Stay MINI. It's bad enough they've made a ugly ass grille opening, much like everyone elses offerings. Keep what you brought you success.
