There you have it. The first completed Tesla Model S that has been converted… into a convertible!
If you remember awhile back, we reported that a company named Newport Convertible Engineering (NCE) does these convertible conversions (Check that out here).
NCE's YouTube channel provided us with a few videos of the Model S convertible conversion progress.
Check out these video updates:
And here is the final result!
We found something rather interesting in the comment section in one of the videos. The commenter was asking if this conversion is authorized by Tesla.
We can only imagine by chopping the roof off, it effects the overall safety of the vehicle. If there is a compromise in safety, then Tesla could have the authority to shut off the vehicle remotely. So… is it authorized? We think not. And we'd be willing to bet that the standard Model S warranty is out the window too.
