Finding your Model S too confining? You can now give it a pricey cabriolet conversion

Newport Convertible Engineering, which has made a bit of a name for itself thanks to its decades-old passion for chopping off the tops of luxury cars, has followed through with its promise to produce a convertible Tesla Model S.

The California-based company has previously rendered how it would go about giving the four-door all electric sedan a cabrio conversion, but a new video by the company reveals that they’ve gone and actually done it.

This is the first step forward in NCE’s plans to give a multitude of Model S sedans a convertible makeover, as well as trimming a few down to convertible coupes, 600 of each, to be specific. If that seems unlikely, it’s really up to demand. Tesla’s not really a volume carmaker, and thus could not commit a requested 5,000 units exclusively to the engineering shop. Instead, NCE encourages clients to have a Model S on order shipped directly to an NCE location instead of their home.

Clients can have their own drop top Model S for a starting price of $110,000, which will rise to $140,00 if you prefer a hard Tonneau cover. Coupe conversion will only cost a mere $69,000.

From the looks of the Model S in the video, unless going for the full convertible coupe conversion, the car will maintain a rather unfortunate-looking pair of B-pillars and an accompanying strut. While it seems to be a lot of extra cash to dole out, NCE are filling a need for an open-topped EV that it hasn’t satisfied since it stopped producing its roadster. According to NCE, an anonymous Chinese investor has even already secured an order of 100 convertible coupes.

If anyone’s got money to burn and are willing to sacrifice a rollover crush rating so high, it broke the NHTSA’s test machine, they can take their Model S to NCE’s locations in Huntington Beach, CA, Dubai, and Barcelona.
