4 door trend coming...

Postby caesarDX » 27 Mar 2010 10:11

I think the lowly 4 door will be worth just as much as a 2 door soon....
Check out the Porsche Panamera 4S and the Aston Martin Rapide 4 door! :shock:

what! turning a sports car into a 4 door or 2+2 is a mistake... (RX8, 260z 2+2, that tragic Porsche, etc... thers lots more, Maui brainfreeze today) if you want a sportscar, buy a real sportscar and don't compromise.

... However a hot sedan is another beast... 2 dr or 4 dr, it shouldn't matter. SUbie WRX sti- 4dr.. pick a M BMW, Mitsu EVO, even our 510's... thers is no such thing as a JDM 2dr SSS, only SSS Bluebird COUPE and SSS 4 door.

The 2 door Sport sedan obsession is mostly a North American thing.

the 3/5 door sport hatch thing is another beast all together...

Ugly for a Ferrari, but to a Datsun guy? I like the boxy shape not to mention the 5L V12 under the hood.

I agree, I have no trouble with this car, it's nice and understated which you cant say for 90% of Ferrari design in the last 20 years.
