A NEW GENRE OF CAR

-

PERSONAL COUPE? IT was Japan’s take on the boulevardc­ruiser two-doors that proliferat­ed the US West Coast in the 1960s and ’70s and produced many a fat-bummed, feeble imitation. Instead of bespoke sports coupes like the Toyota 2000GT and Datsun 240Z, the personal coupe was all about looking good and feeling luxe – at its worst defined by cars like the Mazda 121L Landau and RA60 Celica Liftback, and at its best sophistica­ted with stunners like the Prelude 4WS.
