In Reply to: Slightly better Aerodynamics at high speed w/4dr posted by PiB on October 03, 2000 at 15:33:28:

considering the 4dr is about .7 inches taller, and the same length (easier accomodations for rear passengers). The front on the coupe is longer (the hood is longer), meaning a four door which is taller would be slightly boxier than a coupe, thus probably creating more drag. Am I wrong here? Any other reason they could have turned to four doors? Curious now..CYA>PM3

I have a 2 door. Serious racers switched to 4 doors in the endurance and other race classes once the 4dr was available to them.
