Musk Tweets On Next-Gen Roadster
Your top-down Tesla is coming in the form of the next-generation Roadster.
But we did discover a certainty amongst his Tweets. When asked:
Any chance for a convertible? Sun is out top is down.
Musk responded with this:
Next gen Roadster will be convertible
The original Roadster wasn't what we'd technically call a convertible. It has a removeable top and functions as an "open top" vehicle, but it's not a convertible by modern definition, or at least not how we envision a convertible.

We expect the next-gen Roadster to more resemble a traditional convertible, at least in regards to its drop top.
This render of the next-gen Roadster is perhaps a bit more along the lines of a conventional convertible, though without seeing the top we can't be sure.

Other knowns for the next-gen Roadster include that it will go Maximum Plaid, which is a step above Ludicrous and that one paint option will be plaid. Both of these details come to us straight from Elon Musk.
We expect the next-gen Roadster to launch sometime after 2020, though Tesla has not provided launch-date details as of yet.
As long as the convertible Roadster doesn't resemble this mess...:
