Considering that STATISTICALLY the more intelligent and educated you are, the more likely you are to be childfree, *and* considering the fact that childfree people have a significantly higher level of discretionary income, many of us opt to purchase high-end two-seaters such as the BMW Z4 M Coupe, or the Porche Boxter or even the Cadillac XLR. Therefore, your assessment of the childed preferring large cars is correct, but there remains a SIGNIFICANT and substantial market for the two-seater *if* you market the car to the right audience.
yeah, my post was really an underhanded jap at childless people
sarcasm button off
but now that you mention it. The last people that should have kids are people that don't want them. Considering your verbiage to describe children, I'm confident you did the right thing. You do bring up an interesting point though, and that is: the people most capable both with regard to resource and ability are having less children, and people [generally] what ain't got the two sticks to rub together are having a gaggle of them.... something messed up and a little backward there (ref Bell Curve).
The smart would sill not be considered a family car in the traditional sense, and CERTAINLY there was no offence intended toward the childless family.
Not to worry I had enough kids to replace you and yours
