Such a decision was instantly understandable from an economic
point of view as Rolls-Royce with their models Roll-Royce Wraith offered
a 2-door fastback coupe and with their model Rolls-Royce Dawn a 2-door
convertible. These were close relatives of the "Baby Rolls", i.e. the
4-door Rolls-Royce Ghost Saloon which did complete the portfolio. –
Inevitably it would have ignited in-house competition if the "big"
4-door Rolls-Royce Phantom VIII had had 2-door brethren.
Hence there will be but a really small number of Rolls-Royce Phantom
Coupés from Serie I and II. That can be said, too, of the sister model
with collapsible hood (although in absolute figures more had been
produced of these). It is speculation if in hindsight once there will be
comments dictated by sadness that it had been merely an episode from the
history of Rolls-Royce when orders for a Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupé
Series II had been accepted. It is pure speculation, too, whether or not
for future market conditions entirely different models will be tailored:
