>Need room for more than two passengers? Here are some of the best 4 door sports cars that offer you the performance and luxury you’ll appreciate.
We tend to consider sports cars exclusively as those having two doors or no doors at all (cue Lotus 7 or Ariel Atom), yet four-door sports cars not only exist but have been around for decades. Mixing the practicality of a family sedan with sports car power, these sporty four-door sedans with a rear seat could be driven daily with little to no compromise on speed and excitement.

Top 10 Best 4 Door Sports Cars
1. Alfa Romeo Giulia TI Super
Alfa Romeo’s sporty spirit wasn’t limited to top-tier racing machinery, handbuilt Mille Miglia-conquering of the pre-WW2 years, and stunning Tipo 105 coupés racing throughout European circuits. Before the monstrous Giulia Quadrifoglio of today, there was a humble, boxy, yet incredibly nimble Giulia Super four door sports car.
This classic three-box four door sedan was Alfa Romeo’s bread and butter throughout the sixties, with several respectable sporty variants. The race-bred Giulia TI Super was the top-of-the-line rear wheel drive sport sedan powered by a 110-horsepower twin-carb 1.6-liter twin-camshaft inline-four propelling it to 115 MPH.
While these numbers seem humble for today’s performance cars, the Giulia TI Super was a true four-door sports car in spirit, as it had numerous weight-reducing features such as magnesium alloy wheels and Plexiglas rear windows among others. All these interventions meant the Giulia TI tipped the scales at just over 2,000 lb. Needless to say, these nimble little four cylinder engine Alfas scored considerable racing success all over Europe, making them sought after classics today.
