NCE to Build Tesla Model S Two-Door Coupe and Convertible Conversions [Photo Gallery]

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.

Confirmed: NCE To Produce Tesla Model S Coupe, Convertible Model S

After months of rumors and long forum threads on fan sites, it’s official: from this fall, you’ll be able to buy the iconic Tesla Model S as a convertible drop top or a two-door coupe.

Fancy a two-door Tesla Coupe? Now you can have one.

That’s the news from world-renowned body specialists Newport Convertible Engineering (NCE), which announced yesterday that it will offer the Tesla Model S in soft-top convertible, hard-top convertible, and two-door coupe variants.

Known for its bespoke coachwork skills, NCE has chopped the top off everything from a Toyota Prius and Ford Explorer to a Maybach Laudaulet and a Rolls Royce Phantom. Its bodywork skills aren’t limited to rag-tops either: in fact, the Californian-based company also offers a six-wheel drive AMG G63 6X6 and two-door convertible Range Rover among its list of built-to-order vehicles.

In its official press release announcing its latest addition to its ‘Green’ range of vehicles — which also includes a Cadillac ELR convertible — NCE said it had originally hoped to buy 5,000 vehicles direct from Tesla Motors [NASDAQ:TSLA], carrying out the conversions on brand-new vehicles and then selling them on as 2015 models. Due to high global demand for the Model S however, NCE says for now customers who want the conversions will have to order their cars first, then ship it to NCE for conversion.

Depending on what you’d like NCE to do with your Tesla Model S, prices range from $29,000 for turning a standard Model S sedan into a four-door soft-top convertible through to an massive $80,000 for converting it into a two-door hard boot convertible.

Unlike Tesla itself, which currently builds all Model S cars at its Fremont factory, the NCE conversion can be carried out at NCE facilities in Huntington Beach, California; Barcelona, Spain; or Dubai, UAE.

NCE will also make a four-door convertible in addition to this snazzy two-door variant.

As with all NCE conversions, the its Tesla conversions come with the standard five-year warranty on all modifications and have been designed to ensure that the Model S retains as much its legendary five-star crash test rating as possible — although it is worth noting that however well designed, convertibles do pose additional safety risks in certain types of accident due to the loss of a rigid roof structure.

Here at Transport Evolved, we’re not sure what we make of the concept of a two-door Tesla Convertible, especially when the original Model S sedan comes with an optional panoramic glass roof — but what do you think? Leave your thoughts in the Comments below.

NCE Plans Tesla Model S Coupe And Two-Door Convertible Conversions

Tesla Model S convertible by Newport Convertible Engineering

Over the past 30 years, Huntington Beach, California-based Newport Convertible Engineering has tried to turn seemingly every car into a convertible, but its plansfor the Tesla Model S electric car are even more ambitious than usual. NCE announced a four-door Tesla Model S convertible back in April, and now the company says it will be joined by a two-door version, as well as a two-door Model Scoupe.

As with its previous convertible scheme for the popular Tesla Motors [NSDQ:TSLA] sedan, NCE claims an anonymous Chinese investor has already ordered 100 examples, but this time of two body styles. Whoever this person is, he or she must be as confident of Tesla’s future in China as Tesla itself.

NCE plans to build 600 copies of both the two-door convertible and coupe at its California headquarters as well as locations in Dubai, and Barcelona. It hopes to start production before the end of 2014.

The two-door convertible conversion starts at $25,000, but that price rises to $45,000 for a hard tonneau cover conversion, while the coupe starts at $35,000. Despite the seemingly more-complex task of removing two doors, these convertibles are actually $4,000 less than the four-door versions NCE previously showed.

Note, NCE previously tried to secure a commitment from Tesla for 5,000 cars to be delivered straight from the factory for conversion, but Tesla never agreed to this. Instead, Newport is encouraging customers to order their cars individually from Tesla, and have them shipped to one of its facilities to be modified.

2015 Tesla Model S Convertible Review And Price

2015 Tesla Model S Convertible Side

As soon as the Tesla Model S was delivered to the market many asked about wagon but also about convertible version of this vehicle. At this point we are pretty sure that Tesla Motors is not planning to deliver convertible but according to reports another company has prepared conversion kit for this highly popular electric vehicle.

2015 Tesla Model S Convertible ReviewAt the NCE or Newport Convertible Engineering we have people that are specialists in converting standard sedans and coupes into convertibles. They were responsible for many conversions and one of those was the Range Rover drop top, other models certainly had more interested and potential buyers. Similar will be with the Model S or which we do expect to see large number of interested buyers when the drop top version comes.

For the 2015 Tesla Model S we will be getting both soft and hard top conversions. This could be something that would further improve the market position of this highly popular EV. According to reports we could hear it seems that an investor from China already placed an order for 100 of these conversion kits.

2015 Tesla Model S Convertible Front

From the Al Zahed, CEO of the company we received announcement that for more than six months this company was working on delivery of these two versions. This amount of time was needed for successful conversion because it is not simple, it is not just roof cut off and that it needed reconstruction in some segments. These changes had to be delivered so that the vehicle would offer same structural integrity and that its chassis would offer same rigidity.

Price Of 2015 Tesla Model S Convertible

Prices are quite high. For a soft top conversion buyers will need to pay about $29,000 while the hard top conversion will cost about $49,000. On top of this every buyer will, off course, need to provide vehicle on which conversion will be done. First conversion kit will be offered from July and those will be available in Barcelona, California and Dubai.

Further we could hear that the Newport Convertible Engineering contacted Tesla Motors about the possibility to supply them with 5000 units of Model S vehicles for the conversion. This is the predicted demand but it will be interesting to see what will be the answer from Tesla Motors and if the demand of 5000 units will be at this level.

2015 Tesla Model S Convertible

Price of the 2015 Tesla Model S is pretty high but when we see the features list, specs, performances, luxury and comfort it is quite obvious that the price is quite similar with premium and luxury sedans from other car makers. If Tesla Motors decides to deliver convertible we are pretty sure that the price would be significantly lower.
