4 MiniVan style sliding doors, front 2 slide forward, rear 2 slide backwards. A piece of the ceiling could slide with the door to allow for easy access. Pros: -can't ding nearby cars like conventional doors -works in low height parking garages, not like gullwing or pivot-up (lambrogini) -doesn't need a vertical center pillar -power open/close already in minivans Cons: -requires an equator groove for the rollers (aka finger pincher slot)

       Would the front two doors slide foreward as not to obstruct the two main side doors? Sliding suicide doors - sold. [+]

       I thought this would be Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek with their own families taking kids to the park.

       You just want a car/van with four powered sliding doors?

       Where do the front doors slide into? The door frames are already at the front of the windshield, so there is no where for them to slide into. And the front wheels would block the slider for the bottom of the doors.
