It's apples and oranges comparing GPS and ABS to gull wing doors.
I named two that I could see, better entry/exit/loading in tight spaces , and if designed right as in, instead of two doors, just a single panel with gutters like a liftgate would provide shade/shelter when open. I see it like a power sliding door, a convenience.
I'm not saying I'm going to run out and find a way to make it happen, but it's not unappealing.
