I don't see 2-seater antiquated. It is good enough to carry me around, with added bonus of a passenger if the need arise. I drove many years mostly alone in a 5-seater sedan and it seemed so pointless. And there are many 4-seater sports cars where the rear seats are in practice useless, they just take space without any practical application.
If two seats are not enough, what is enough then? 5? 8? 30?
