I'm not sure I've ever seen a 4-door convertible?

Now that you mention it, of course that's true. Wasn't the direction I expected this thread to go...

I don't think that it is structurally necessary, since the chassis is structurally super rigid because of the battery enclosure. I think it is left there as a roll bar in case the car overturns.

Nice to have the convertible, but it shows even more the bland lack of style that the Tesla has. Bring on the Sunset!

Unfortunately, the B pillar and connecting bar make this look a bit odd. The Tesla is a fine looking car but it is just that. This convertible IMO looks worse that the original. I guess I am not a fan.

Looking forward to the next versions of electric cars including the future Fiskers.
