FAST CAT JOY sounds like a brand of Chinese pet food, but those are actually rumored codenames for BMW's front-wheel drive vehicles.

According to Car Magazine, the FAST (Family Activity Sports Tourer) is a "dynamic people mover" that will be offered alongside a MINI van. The MPV will reportedly be launched in late 2013 and be available with all-wheel drive.

Next up, the CAT (Compact Activity Tourer) is slated to be based on the next-generation MINI Clubman. Additional information is limited, but previous reports have indicated the redesigned Clubman will be offered as a traditional five-door hatchback.

Lastly, the JOY (Compact Sports Commuter Concept) is rumored to be a city car that will be based on the production version of the MINI Rocketman concept.
