Suicide doors are cool, but only if they're real suicide doors like a Rolls Royce. I sold BMWs for a while and the mini-doors are salesproof.

They're technically "clamshell doors" but Mazda used to call them "freestyle doors". Interesting to read about the advantages/disadvantages on Wikipedia. Conventionally hinged doors are safer if hit by another vehicle, which might be a reason they are so rare. The reduced size of the mini-doors does mitigate this. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suicide_door
