The all-new Skoda Superb is being launched this year and the Czech car company is already calling it "a new era". It's certainly better than its predecessor, but in a number of areas, the Mk3 falls short of the VW Passat and its own "flagship" title.
But here are a couple of rendered photos that show a Superb which does deserve to be called a flagship, the Superb Convertible created by Theophilus Chin is a large 2-door four-seater, similar to the Opel Cascada.

Skoda hasn't made a convertible in many years and we think every automaker should have one on offer. The problem is that demand wouldn't be that high and Volkswagen bosses are allready trying to kill off these niche models and focus more on crossovers. The Eos is being killed off in 2015 and the Golf Cabrio could follow, while recent reports suggest the Beetle could be dead soon, coupe included.

The problem with convertibles is that most people don't want one nowadays. You can have a gigantic sunroof on just about any type of car. Of course, there's also badge snobbery to take into consideration, since no self-respecting BMW 3 Series owner would trade it in for a Skoda, even if it's fast.

We think it's a shame, really, because for cruising around the Greek islands or posing near Lake Como, a softly sprung Opel Cascada is great. And with access to all the latest MQB tech, the Superb could be even better.

The car that could change all that is the upcoming S-Class Cabriolet, which is going to be one of the biggest, most technologically advanced roofless 4-seaters around.
