I would love to own a two door coupe. In my opinion, a four door saloon is more versatile while a coupe reflects more passion and exclusivity. I would have loved it if the Conti came in a two door layout. As far as Zens go, Carbon and Steel look better than the standard
car. Cars that dominate my dreams are all two door coupes - XKR, 911, M Coupe, etc.

Surprise, Surprise.. Two door vehicles are very comfortable for the driver and the front passenger.. With large doors providing better ease of ingress and egress.. Whereas the rear-seat (if it is available) is not so comfy.. Getting into the back-seat is a pain..

Hmm, I doubt if the vehicles retain their sportiness and aerodynamics after tampering with the ground-clearance.. Basically you are increasing the Centre of Gravity of the vehicle..

Besides, what is a sports coupe worth if you lose the handling and the looks..

Yes! yes!! Yes!!! I love two door cars...but like someone said they aren't meant for the family. Getting in & out for rear seat passengers can be quite a pain.
