Tesla Model S Convertible Looks Surprisingly Good

Luxury / Comments

How about it, Elon?

For all of Tesla's heroics in the electric vehicle sector over the last decade or so, the company has been quite slow to incorporate different vehicle styles, having prioritized sedans and crossovers. Of course, that will all change when the Cybertruck finally arrives, but until then, Tesla lacks the diversity of many competitors. To remedy that, perhaps Elon Musk and his team could install one of its powertrains into a sporty coupe-style body? To see if the idea made any sense, the Twitter page Tesla Owners UK shared images of a Model S converted into a convertible.

It's not clear exactly who or what company is responsible for this conversion, but the end result is surprisingly effective. The clean lines of the Model S sedan translate well when the rear doors are removed and the roof chopped off to create an opulent, premium drop-top that looks like it could battle the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet. The pictures don't reveal whether a hard- or soft-top roof is hiding away behind the rear seats, but we'd assume it's the latter as a fabric roof would be easier to package and take up less space. And, well, at least it's a roofless Tesla that didn't come about accidentally.

Inside, we can see Tesla's usual large center touchscreen interface and a cabin typically devoid of physical controls. There doesn't appear to be much space at the back, but that's not unusual for convertibles. Some sporty orange-hued trim has been applied to the door panels, steering wheel, and dashboard. Besides its aesthetic appeal, a potential Tesla Model S Convertible would be thoroughly unique, as fully electric drop-tops are incredibly rare.

In terms of Teslas you can actually buy, we anticipate that the Model S and X will soon receive a significant refresh as the company tries to get rid of the existing inventory of these models. As for a drop-top Model S, we don't expect one anytime soon - if ever.
