I love the idea and the look. Mechanically, I think adhering to the wheelbase and pack form and capacity of the standard Model 3 would be better than a 50 whr pack for two reasons. The sports car may not achieve the same low cD of the Model 3 so efficiency may not yield 200 miles range and the smaller pack cannot deliver the same peak amperes as a larger pack so performance may be reduced if the vehicle is not sufficiently lighter.
SIGN ME UP!!!! Owen hit the nail on the head. But PLEASE keep it a soft-top! Hardtop convertibles never look good (BMW 3, now 4-series excepted). Plus who wants all that additional weight and loss of usable trunk space?
Love the Tesla Miata concept. Maybe a two plus two?
But, I really need a EV replacement for my MINI cabrio. A blast for myself everyday, but can squeeze up to four in a pinch, and with the top down can haul anything.
Most fun most practical car ever.
As attractive as this rendering appears, it’s not very likely to happen in my lifetime. Now, if Mazda were to electrify their own Miata, that’s a more likely and realistic proposition.
Would trade my 2017 Miata in in a heartbeat for a convertible two seater 3 and would bring a boatload isf cash! Seriously! Tomorrow!
Nope! I could buy 2 new MX 5s for that price. They get 36+ MPG in ordinary driving.
I would trade in my Honda 2006 S2000 tomorrow. This is the Tesla I have been waiting for.
The inevitable club racing series that would follow might distract the owners attention from Mars for a few days!
Love it.. I would love for this to happen and to own one
Love it.. Red ,Electronic., and a convertible.. it would be my 15 convertible in my 50 years of driving and would to have one more new one.
Take my money, pkease! That would be awesome.
I voted "hate it" for only one reason. Tesla needs to focus on executing the cars and technology that they have already announced AND make money. Introducing more new cars, and this one would be great, and failing at the other business issues would likely end badly for the business.
make it a HARDTOP convertible and then I'll buy it
This is what i am waiting for. I am mostly pleased with my 2012 Leaf, which was a bargain used.
Personally i have very strong feelings about a car's looks. To me the Leaf i have looks better than any Tesla (when all views are taken into account). To add to the conttoversy, i think the vehicle under discussion would look better if it were styled by Mazda.
Just got m3. Would love to get one like this for wife.
As a Model 3 Performance and a Miata SE owner that's been looking for ways to convert the latter, this would fulfill the dream of my perfect car.
Wish he would build a S based estate car (wagon) which I desperately need.
Love the rendering. Clean lines, subtle creases good integration of creases and curves from sides to the rear end. Wheels set in just right, using Tesla's own design look great. Nice job !!
They need to make this. The over 50 crowd is waiting for a affordable electric convertible! Would sell like hot cakes!
Love it and the front end of my model 3
This view looks great. Just don’t screw up and make an ugly front end like the model 3.
It's possible and about time;of course, the price is the issue.
