Don’t hesitate at only 10946$.

The RX-8 came out in 2003. Absolutely nothing in the entire sports car segment back in 1995 was available with even one pair of suicide doors. You’d only find them on the odd concept car or full-size truck at the time, unless you saw a London Taxi.

Also, of all the posssibilities I tried for this round, the small NSX body turned out to be the only one where I could fit corrosion-resistant steel panels on a galvanized steel chassis - CR steel is very expensive, and with a tight budget of just 11k, I wouldn’t have been able to afford it with any other body. I was banking on the possibility that Thomas would have to consider environmental resistance when choosing his next car.

Thanks, but no-one actually gives a fuck

You sure its not Minivan sliding doors? :thinking:


#45

Might be tricky getting them to slide past those flares…


#46

Stick this up your arse Abg!


#47

Err… wikipedia doesn’t mention any car in the 90s with suicide doors apart from a pickup truck.

Also the tone in some of these last few replies… Friendly competition anyone?


#48

“…apart from…”

And anyway…this IS friendly! :smiley:


#49

A change beginning with the 1999 model year gave the SC a small suicide door on the driver's side. This type of door had previously been used in extended cab pickup trucks, but was an innovation in coupe design.


#50

Saturn had em. They were a thing around the time, just not demonstrated that much apart from concept cars and black cabs.


#51

Not quite as good ol’ London taxi the 1958–1997 Austin FX4 certainly features them.


#52

Are we building replica cars where we have to stick with exactly what was available at the time, or are we building imaginary cars how we want to?

There’s absolutely no reason why a 90’s car couldn’t have suicide doors. Just because hardly any did, doesn’t mean that someone cant design one that does.

Ceci n’est pas une Hommell Berlinette (mais ele est trés similaire)…

My (probably rusty) French aside, time to lob my own grenade into this field of hot grenades;

There are tigers, there are panthers, there are jaguars. But those ferocious felines are never truly tamed, always on verge of losing their temper.

Meet the Alvatore RS, our tameable black cat. A cat that can live in town, but then latch the claws to any stretch of asphalt which brings out the beast within. Many rear-wheel-drive coupes sacrifice luggage space, taking their engines to the back.

However, the RS brings the same level of driver interaction, without ending any chances of losing passengers. Rear-wheel-drive. Double Wishbone suspension, front and back. A special rear wing. Four seats. The Alvatore RS ensures a safe change of habitats, wherever you go.

The heart is up to pair with the RS’s sharp claws; 161hp are always there, unaided by any turbos, only stopping at 7800 rpm. Small but mighty; this 2-litre, 24-valve inline-6 takes knowhow from the proud CSM touring cars that clinched podiums all over Europe.

It is often told that curiosity killed the cat. However, the Alvatore RS is a kitty that only sparks more curiosity, the more you get to know it. So come to your nearest CSM dealer, and see what the Alvatore RS has to offer. Because if you don’t, breaking a mirror will feel like child’s play…

*example shown with optional “Riding Red Hood” visual package and roof rack. For more information, consult your nearest CSM dealer

(Yes, I know I said a classic hot hatch was my dream for this. But Lord knows how hard I tried, only for the attempts to be filed under the Fun class. Making a fun car that’s not Fun is a tough ordeal! :sweat_smile:)

I’m now kinda thinking this round should have been set in '93 to see how many people remember the french law on yellow headlamps…
