NCE to Build Tesla Model S Two-Door Coupe and Convertible Conversions

Ever since Tesla Motors dropped the Roadster, the Palo Alto-based EV manufacturer's range lacked a two-door model. But that'll soon change thanks to the talented engineers from Newport Convertible Engineering.

For a number of decades now, the Californian tuner made its fame and fortune by hacking the roof off cars you wouldn't have ever imagined in topless guise. Two conversions come to mind: the surprisingly dignified two-door Range Rover Convertible and a neat Porsche Panamera Convertible.

Earlier this year we've told you that NCE got 100 orders from a Chinese investor for a convertible version of the Tesla Model S four-door luxury electric sedan. With production slated to start two months from now, the company was so wonderstruck by the high volume order that it requested Tesla for a joint effort to build an extra 5,000 Model S drop-tops for future customers.

However, the recently found commercial success wasn't enough to keep NCE at bay. As a matter of fact, engineers came up with an "less is more" evolution of the Tesla Model S Convertible conversion. Yup, you've guessed it - the four-door convertible sedan had two of its doors deleted. We admit, the new design won us over.

According to a manufacturer statement, "Newport Convertible Engineering has been working on these projects since last year. Based on a four-door Tesla Model S, front doors will be extended for more comfort and ease. Two-door convertible driving will be the ultimate green vehicle of our time.”

Just like its four-door sibling, the new conversion will be built Stateside, in Spain and the United Arab Emirates, with production starting this fall. The first batch will consist of 600 Tesla Model S Coupe conversions and 600 units of the Tesla Model S Coupe Convertible.

Excluding the donor vehicle, the two-door coupe conversion of the Tesla Model S retails at $35,000, while the two-door convertible's price is $25,000 for the soft boot or $45,000 for the metal roof variant.
