If you like Tesla’s proposal in the saloon segment but you think your catalog is not wide enough, you’re in luck. The Tesla Model S becomes a pretty cooler after passing through the hands of Ares Design.
Tesla Model S convertible: goodbye to the roof and two doors
The same Italian company, Ares has shared two images of what its future project on the American electric will look like. As they did in the transformation of other vehicles, the design centre based in Modena will do more than just cut and add some new elements.
The body and design specialist will take the Tesla Model S through a serious redesign project, both exteriorly and interiorly. On the outside the changes will be more than evident, removing the entire upper area of the roof and changing it to a hood. In addition, the rear doors will be removed to convert it into a coupe and the rear seats will be reduced.
Inside, it is expected that Ares Design will also make changes to turn the Model S into a much more luxurious and refined vehicle after passing through the hands of some of the most reputable Italian experts in the sector.
What we do not know yet is whether Ares will make some kind of structural modification to reinforce the chassis after detaching the Model S from its top.
What is certain is that the electrical section will remain intact. Tesla has been quite permissive with those who have wanted to modify their vehicles but with the only limitation of not altering the electrical section of their cars.
Now, this creation by Ares Design will not be completely new. Recall that in 2014, a small American company made a similar transformation, although with not too good result . In favour of the Ares approach is the conversion adoption of two doors, which surely helps to enhance the style of the final transformation.
As for the price, there is nothing announced either. Ares Design commented that its Model S convertible will arrive sometime in 2018.
