    A sedan can also be a two door vehicle. I learned this playing the NYT crossword earlier in the month. I, also, thought that sedan = 4 doors and coupe = 2 doors.

    wtf?

    I have never heard anyone refer to a 2 door as a sedan.

    What's the difference then?

    I honestly couldn't find a black and white answer (which infuriated me at the time). Basically just that a coupe is a 2 door vehicle with front and rear seats while a sedan is a 2 or 4 door vehicle with front and rear seats.

    Thuper gay, I know, I've never heard anyone refer to a car as a "2 door sedan". :dunno:

    Here today, gone tomorrow. Very very few of them have been made just like those turbocharged Chevrolet SS compacts.

    I'd drive one.


    I'd covet something else while I did, but I'd drive one. Wish you could store the targa top on board though.

    The turbo Ecotecs are really stout motors and are really well suited to the task.
