NCE to Offer Nissan GT-R Convertible; What do you Think?

Let’s face it; most pure convertible editions of high-performance cars are far less desirable than their coupe counterparts, and that usually has to do with the added weight and the structural integrity issues that come with the transformation.

The faster a car is, the more apparent these shortcomings become– and as far as fast is concerned, few standard production models can go up against the almighty Nissan GT-R.

Still, there is a certain market for these convertibles, and since Nissan doesn’t want to bother with opening the top of its GT-R, California’s Newport Convertible Engineering (NCE) has decided to do it for them.

For now, the company is just showing photoshops of their creation that they say will be available in “three designs” (there’s no explanation on their site, but we assume that they are referring to the existence or not of a fixed roll bar and/or double hump behind the driver and passenger), for custom order only.
