Ares Design Will Be Making A Tesla Roadster Too – Model S, That Is

For people who need a brand new convertible Tesla in their lives, options are limited to the second-generation Roadster.

However, there may be two major drawbacks to that car: deliveries won’t begin until 2020 and prices start at $200,000. Sure, there’s always the alternative of buying a used first-generation Roadster, but even Elon Musk said that car was a disaster reliability-wise. So, what other options are there on the table?

Well, one can always ask a coachbuilding expert to convert a Tesla Model 3 or Model S into a cabriolet. While we haven’t seen a Model 3 convertible yet, there have been some attempts at chopping the roof off the Model S.

The latest company to try that is Ares Design and this design sketch is a clear sign of what’s to come. Previewed on its social media channels, the Tesla S Roadster by Ares Design certainly looks like an enticing proposition.

Why this is so enticing is simply because no one has ever attempted to convert the Model S into a two-door, two-seat roadster — all the other Model S convertibles we’ve seen so far have kept the four doors and two rows of seats.

For now, the Modena-based coachbuilder isn’t very generous with the details. It only says it “will take all its knowledge and creativity into the all-electric cars universe, designing an exciting Roadster version of the Tesla Model S.”

If the sketch is anything to go by, Ares Design’s S Roadster will certainly look exciting. As for whether it can actually impact sales of Tesla’s own Roadster, that all depends on the conversion price and release date.
