I do not understand this. You are saying the vette is NOT a sports coupe, rather it is a sports car? I have a hard time believing they are no longer making a two door hard top corvette.

The vett is a sports car. There is no back seat. It is a two seater.

No, two seaters aren't coupes. Two seaters are sports cars

So a Z isn't a coupe or convertible, it is a sports car?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Corvette

I am not one to blindly follow a wiki, but I only know pf so many body styles, coupe, convertible, estate, saloon, SUV, crossover, pick up, hatch, and mini van. I am sure there are more, I just don't get how a car is not a coupe because it has two seats, I thought coupe meant two doors.

The Vett isn't classified as a sports coupe defined by State Farm. My buddy has a Vett and a 70s something Camaro. The Camaro is defined as a sports coupe aka muscle car because of the back seat. His Vett is defined as a sports car bc of its lack of a back seat. He pays two different premiums bc they are different.

Ah, i meant general auto segmentation, not auto insurers trying to gouge money. I would bet the GT500, which has a back seat, is also not considered a coupe under that particular insurer. Kind of like how an Alpina M5 has a different class than a Ford Fiesta, even if they are both four doors and seat five people. (i think the M5 seats 4, like the GT and 7 series, but it might still hold 5.)

Edit: posted this while other stuff was written, not trying to be an ***.

Exactly. Seeing as they built it originally as a sporty executive car I think they could pull off a 4 door just fine.

It would look retarded just like the 4-door Porche. It looks stupid. Why not make a 2 door Excursion with 1200 HP?

Why would anyone even want a 4 door I think that would be a stupid idea in the first place and if ppl want a 4 door car get a 4 door car but it won't be a mustang.

I'm actually disappointed to see how close minded some of you are. In the end it would come down to if they had the option choose to buy it or not. Those wanting a coupe will buy it...Those wanting a sporty sedan will buy that option.

If they want a 4 door, they can buy the taurus SHO, it's badass. When they make too many options on the Mustang, it just makes the price go up. Offering a 4 door would almost be a whole new car, the way cars are made today. It's not a matter of being open minded, it's just doesn't make sense no matter how much you want it.

Some car companies think change will bring in more money...in this case, they'll lose so much money if they did that, it'd make their head spin. Such a bad idea.

then buy the 2 door option if they offered both simple as that.

as for the sho option though i agree it's a BA 4 door...maybe they want the 5.0 and 4 door.
@sara...and why would they lose so much money?

Because people have gotten used to Mustang being 2 door and nothing else. It has been since it was made. Some people don't like that kinda change, especially to a car like that. It would look a bit funny... Lol. Just my opinion though.

depending on the style of 4 door you may never even know it's a 4 door in passing

lets take for example the original dodge charger...it was a 2 door beast..now they offer it in a 4 door and it's sales are still great. now i'd prefer ford to use a suicide door version if they ever did go this route to keep it sleek looking. the notion of a 4 door doesn't bother me. do i think a 4 door mustang would sell like hot cakes....no...do i think it would cause the company to lose money...no. it would become just another side model for people looking for something specific

Never thought about it that way... Plus I guess it's a way for a family to be able to have a Mustang. Considering when people usually start a family, some have to rid of their Stang. Guess it being just another option isn't a bad idea. I personally would still drive the 2 doors, I just wonder if they did it, how/if they would change the look of the car,

and that's ok...the people that drive them however do like the 4 doors. different needs require different types of cars

lets be honest...the chances of ford ever building a 4 door stang are slim, but if they did i don't think it'd ruin everything lol

There's a big difference between offering a 4 door only (charger) and offering a 2 door and a 4 door option. It's a manufacturing pain in the *** to do that. It would cost more to offer both. It's the same reason the chargers were auto only, it's cheaper. That's also why they stopped offering a coupe or a fastback or hatchback, they went with one option.

I think an RX8 kind of option wound be decent, and I see both points, but kind of on topic, Ford's only decent front rear is the Mustang. The SHO is all wheel drive, and not THAT powerful for the weight.

I see why people want it, but I understand why others don't want it. Some people want Ford to make a decent front rear car that they can take the family out with, or have fun with-M5, Quattroporte, so on, but the Mustang people say let's keep our pride and joy true to its origin.

Clear, but Ford needs another sedan than the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Taurus. A HUGE market is lost to this, I feel. A fusion does not compare to a BMW. Not because of base line power or efficiency or quality, but because of driveline. We need a decent FR sedan.

the front does look similar to a Mustang but if that is what a 4 door stang would look, I don't think they should.

I left out an important point here: we need an FR sedan that is not the Mustang.

Ford has a pretty comprehensive lineup of general sedans. I agree the Fusion does not compete with BMW--because they aren't trying to. It's competing with the Accord, Camry, Altima, etc. Different market. Even when Ford had a FR sedan (Panther platform), it wasn't trying to compete with the German performance sedans; I doubt Ford really has any interest in that market.
