Not too long ago, Newport Convertible Engineering revealed that it was working on a convertible variant of the Model S. That’s not all however as NCE said it had asked for a collaboration with Tesla Motors itself to build 5000 Model S Convertibles for the global market. Now the convertible experts, who have chopped the roofs of some of the world’s most recognisable hardtops, has announced it is working on a two-door Model S convertible as well as a two-door Model S coupe.
According to NCE, a Chinese investor has ordered 100 examples of the proposed two-door Model S convertible and coupe. Furthermore, the company wants to make in total, 600 examples of the two new variations. Production will reportedly begin at the end of this year at NCE’s headquarters in California as well as separate production facilities in Dubai and Barcelona.
Newport Convertible Engineering is planning to charge $25,000 for the two-door convertible version while the coupe variant should cost from $35,000. No images of the two new proposed models have been released yet but the company will need just a couple examples to convince existing Model S customers of the design and practicality.
While NCE did try and reach an agreement with Tesla to supply 5000 cars, no agreement was made. Consequently, NCE is relying on existing and future Model S owners to head in for the conversions.
