sedan or coupe?
« on: September 10, 2013, 10:50:14 PM »
talkin about skylines obviously :P

whats your fave? im all about the sedans - apart from the whole "skyline heritage" aspect, I think they look fukn gaaaangsta - coupes are also sexy as sheit, but I wouldnt have one over a 4 door unless it was a GTR, personally speaking... and Id feel the same way if we were talking about a hako, a 30 or a G35...

thoughts?

Always a 2 door!
I've only ever owned one 4 door car but at the time, I also owned its 2 door equivalent which helped soften the blow of owning a 4 door. Both R30 Skylines too :D

Really? the rear end of 4 door skylines don't look right IMO.

Had a V35 sedan and now have a R34 coupe. Rear seat in a R34 coupe is pointless might as well remove it hahaha

As far as I know, Skylines have always been 4 doors. It wasn't until later on that they switched to coupes.

If a 4 door was like this -



This 4 door R34 GTR is different -

from wiki: "The GT-R began as a sedan, but a 2-door coupé version was debuted in October 1970 and introduced in March 1971. "

i think the original prince skyline came in a coupe tho - that said, sedans have always been more "car" than coupes imo :D

I just remember seeing the old 4 door shape (I think there's a few of them in NZ), that's why I mentioned it.

I actually like both, but the 4 door is slightly less aerodynamic due to having straighter roof at the front, different angle A pillar (on each side of front window), so front passenger, driver can get into car without hitting roof vs coupe that slants a bit with roof and has a shorter A pillar (the front windows are different because of this design change). It's something you notice when comparing them side by side. Also the 4 door is heavier due to 2x extra doors.

theres just something sexy about a no spoiler R32 4 door a.s.s when its lowered and parallel to the road plus i like my cars to be designed with a ruler love straight lines on cars i also prefer the tail lights of a 4 door than the coupe

agree 100% - i rate 32's as just slightly sexier than 34's, but yeah I like all that newer technology and lack of rust too...:dude
