I see your point. So why are there four doors? If I recall correctly, the 6 Gran Coupe, with it's extended roofline, is a joke in the rear seats and can't really seat people comfortably back there (with regards to headroom).

It's purely for style then? The 4 doors that is.

I think I'm missing something

The panamara, for example, makes sense with regards to its design. It's a wagon; like the F31. But the unrealistically proportioned 4-door "coupes" - I just don't get it.
