Are 3 door cars really that rare?

As of today, I've been forced into the new/used car buying market. My 'bubble' won't turn over if a) I haven't driven it in over 24 hours, b) if it has rained recently or c) I try to start it in the cold (this I've known for a while). I can't go another year with an unreliable car, so I've started looking for another one.

The thing is, I have a specific list of 'must haves' for my next car, and nothing seems to come close! It must be a smaller (4 person) CAR. Not a truck, not an SUV. It needs to be an automatic, with either rear wheel or all wheel drive. Also, it MUST have a 'suicide' door on the drivers side. Newer cars like that exist, I know they do! But why are they so hard to find? Any help on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated.

Mazda made their RX-8 with a 3rd door, and Saturn had a 3 door for a while.

Mini Coopers have a 3rd, but the ones I've seen are on the passenger side.

Last car I saw with a suicide door was a Saturn ion. They aren't made anymore, but man I wanted one of those!

I'm not familiar with a suicide door. Give me a make and model so I can google.
