The hatchback concept is cool for a younger crowd. It's not sexy. I'm glad it's not a 4 door....

Convertible? No? Thought that's why we have a trunk...
They made a big deal about designing it as a coupe right from the start. There is a whole section about why someplace in the concept literature. They stated very clearly that they wanted a coupe instead of a hatch for the additional rigidity to weight that the coupe body has. This will be lost with a hatch.

Couldn't forget since I have never heard of it before. Not sure we ever had them here and if we did I never saw/noticed one.

My favorite concept is the t top.
The only concept I've seen that would make me think of buying a second 86 is the Targa top (with louvers!). I have zero interest in any of the others.

I want a whole fleet. Regular, Targa (with louvers), and a shooting brake (and lets make it AWD since we're dreaming).

Hell if I didnt need a car to get to the snow my next car would be a kouki BRZ

All this wagon talk has reminded me how much I wanted a CTS-V Wagon, and how disappointed I was when Cadillac discontinued it before making this model:
