You still dont get it. Its not about being pretentious... if someone is in the market for a sports car, why would they get a 2 door family car? No amount of suspension tweeks or HP gains will change the fact that it is a FWD family car. Not to mention, that for the price of a altima coupe, there are much better cars out there. I have driven the 3.5 coupe, and it is exactly that... an altima coupe. It had serious torque steer, and the typical driving dynamics of most other FWD vehicles. People get into this confusion so often... like the scion TC, or an accord coupe etc... just because it looks sporty does not put it in the same class as a sports car. It is a family car that is missing 2 doors. Period. Also, nice sneaking your little jabs in there if people disagree with you. Calling people a snob, or pretentious just because they are enthusiasts that dont love the car that you own... comes off as pretty damn arrogant. I already listed the reasons I don't like it. If I wanted a practical but powerfull family car, I would get a four door car. I see zero point to these shrunken down family cars. Also, I personally do not like the styling of the Altima coupe at all. I think it is bland. Bottom line though... altima coupe =/= sports car. Not even close. That is not opinion or a knock at the car.. it simply isn't a sports car. EDIT: @linuxwanabe I could not agree with you more.
