like i said, i dispise the GC side profile. The only one to really pull it off is the 6 series since it's so long already. But I buy coupes because I want 2 doors, not a chopped up wagon.

What's funny is this is also one of my biggest gripes with the Tesla design language. But again, they sell like crazy. So obviously the audience likes what it likes.
Tesla also sells well for other reasons, not mainly design, but rather because they offer something "unique" to the market. Want an electric car? Very few do that/have made the strives Tesla has (range, charging, tech, etc.) but want a compact sports sedan? You have a choice from The Germans, Americans, Brits, Japanese and even Korean, the market is much larger with greater choice and variety.
