Range Rover Evoque convertible.

Yes, this is for real.

Pretty much the same car as the concept we saw a while ago. Back then, reactions went from “WTF” to “why?”.
Which, I guess, will be the same for the production version.

I mean, I do like the Evoque a lot. And I love convertibles.
But tall/SUV based convertibles never look good.
The Nissan Murano convertible is the only thing I can think of that could be comparable to this. And It was a big flop.

Plus, I really don’t thing there is a market for a 2 door SUV convertible.
Anywhere…

This is the weirdest way to spend R&D money.

  1. Vince,

    Unlike the Murano, I think this convertible looks good. The proportions are right, and there's no awkward bulge where the roof folds-in. I love the straight line going from front to back, it makes it look like it was meant to be a convertible.

  2. There are simply NO convertibles right now that have enough rear seat legroom for adults. If this accomplishes that–there will be a market. The next problem is getting the message out to all who have given up looking for a "practical convertible" fast enough to show a profit–and that could be tough (FINDING those who have given up searching for such a vehicle).

  3. Yeah, but this is a little better looking than the then ugly Murano. And do not forget picnics with silken tablecloths and all the high society could have with this thing.

  4. This thing is awesome. Not logical, but it is flashy, stylish, good looking and a massive status symbol. Picture yourself as an over-privileged 21 USC graduate. Daddy, please PLEASE get me the Range Rover Cabriolet?!?!

    OK, honey.
