A completely convertible Tesla Model S was spotted earlier this week in Boston, according to a photo posted on the Tesla Motors subreddit. The convertible electric sedan also features the same center bar included on the normal Model S units, despite being pictured with its top-down, making it appear like a roll bar more than anything.
Another user on the thread reported seeing a convertible Tesla Model 3 in Oregon last week:
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Tesla owners completely customize their cars. We’ve also seen the Model 3 pickup as well.
Though one user questioned the effectiveness of the convertible Tesla’s ability to prevent battery drain, another responded explaining that a soft-top actually convertible featured similar insulation levels to a hard-top car.
In a comment, the u/quaintlogic wrote, “A proper soft top convertible won’t be much different from a solid roof, OEM implementations typically are pretty well insulated (they are even super quiet).”
Tesla also announced plans for a Model S Plaid delivery event on June 3, according to CEO Elon Musk.
Last week, a drone captured a huge batch of Tesla Model S units at the company’s Fremont production facility, likely set to head out in the weeks to come – despite potentially causing major logistical issues as a result of supply chain difficulties.
