What do words even mean anymore? We got coupes with 2,3,4, now 5 doors. Are pickups coupes too?

The word comes from the French as the past tense of the word cut and refers to any fixed roof car where the roof is shorter than the standard saloon version. The term 4 door coupe dated back at least to the 60s. ISO 3833 states a minimum number of seats and doors but no maximum, Saab used to refer to the 5 door 99 as a coupe in the 70's.

this is not a car so the definition doesn't apply

It is a car. It meets all of the qualifications for a car. It's essentially identical to a Miata.

it's a truck. it's not a car. to quote you:

you can't bemoan the loss of semantic precision and then proceed to throw everything together yourself. stay on topic, son.

a truck more closely fits the definition of a car than a wagon does a coupe.

It has a fixed roof, so no.
Also, it doesn't have a trunk.
Also, it's a truck.

Why would they make it a V8 when a V6 makes as much power with less weight?

Maybe i wasn't clear....
Calling the body-type of a truck identical to that of a miata is wrong because a miata is a convertible. (no fixed roof).
For the rest you morons need to look up what qualitative definitions are.
Hate to brake it to you, but they're mostly marketing terms. In this case a term describing the shape of a car. You could try to quantify it by making a Fourier transform of the cars silhouette but that would require sperging on a level far beyond the average Veeky Forumstist.

Wouldn't it then be cutting into the market of the A7/S7/RS7?

So what this boils down to is that you did not actually know what a coupe was or meant.

Isn't one of the definitions of coupes that they have less than 33 cubic feet of interior space, with 33+ being classed as a sedan?
