With the development of more versatile platforms, carmakers are increasingly exploring new niches to create model footprints that were unthinkable barely a decade ago.

One such is the four-door coupe. Introduced (or rather ‘revived’) in the modern era by the big Mercedes CLS in 2004, it has spawned a swag of imitators.

In the years since, rivals BMW, Audi and even Volkswagen have introduced their own takes on the style with the 4/6 Series Gran Coupe, A5/A7 Sportback models, and even the VW Passat CC.

Interest in the look appears to be building, and a spanish artist by the name of Auto Projeções has imagined two more likely suspects: four-door coupe versions of BMW’s new 2 Series and Merc’s new C-Class.

For the would-be 2 Series Gran Coupe, Auto Projeções has stuck with a simple recipe, stretching the new coupe’s roofline - and grabbing elements from the new 4 Series Gran Coupe - to accommodate a second pair of doors.

For the Mercedes, Auto Projeções has imagined a new rival to Audi’s A5 Sportback and BMW’s 4 Series Gran Coupe, tacking a flowing roofline and shortened tail onto the new C-Class sedan.

Such a model would sit below the big CLS flagship and above the coupe-like CLA sedan, offering a faster looking alternative to the regular C-Class.

Can we expect either of these models to come about? For the BMW, it’s not hard to imagine - particularly as Audi offers an A3 Sedan but there’s no sedan version of the 1 Series.

The Mercedes, on the other hand… something tells us Mercedes will let that one lie.
