Here's a 2014 thread on Wrecks, Crashes, And Accident Photos. It's a long thread with LOTS of great photos.

Charley, I think it is a coupe, the body section behind the door just got bent back so far that it looks like another door. As someone else said, poor occupants. :-(

Jay - correct me if I am wrong, but that is a NZ photo? John

...and I may be wrong - I just know that I have seen this photo before. However, the post in the background does not look like a post that we would plant here in NZ! But the car certainly looks RHD.

Looks like LHD in the engine compartment to me, John? (no steering column this side of the engine, only carb control)

lhd

Sorry John S, Not right hand drive. I can see the steering shaft coming down on the other side of the engine, away from the manifolds. Also the steering drag link can be seen above and behind the tie rod. So, photo not flipped, and drive from the left side.
That is one mangled '24/'25 coupe! I don't know that it cannot be NZ however, but not likely. I am curious as to where you may recall the picture from.
I am not Jay.

I am undecided on whether the door is steel framed ('25) or wood framed ('24). The way the window frame buckled over above the door handle suggests it may be steel framed. But I am not convinced either way.
Great photo Jay, regardless. I generally enjoy seeing pictures of coupes like mine in original settings. A little creepy though seeing one this messed up.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
