The first production model of the world's first three-door coupe, the Saturn rolled off the Spring Hill assembly line in Tennessee. The third door, a rear- hinged panel is located behind the driver's door. The front door must be opened first. There is a definite logic to this -- in a parking lot, the coupe driver can more easily toss packages, groceries, or a briefcase in the rear seat, without having to move the front seat back forward and so out of adjustment. And when someone needs to get into or out of the rear seat, access is much easier.
