  • The future Mini?

    Got you going, this is scary. Bad enough there are rumors TATA is interested in buying Jaguar and Land Rover but here is their proposed "People Car"

        That's funny, Dave!

        Thing is almost two inches longer than the Mini saloon and there's no chance it would pass the Moose test that tripped up the early Smart cars. Looks like stiff breeze would blow it over.
        The more I know about Minis, the more I know I don't know about Minis.

            Moose test. I believe it is Sweden that had a quick lane change test that cars were required to complete to check safety in fast moves...sometimes referred to as the moose avoidance test or simply the moose test.
            When the Smart car came out it failed it badly. Swerve. Swerve. Fall over!
            Shortly after at a major European car show, Volvo and Mercedes happened to have display stands next to each other. Volvo put up a big stuffed moose head overlooking the Mercedes stand!
