No, this is not the 2020 Tesla Roadster, and no, this is not the result of Elon Musk's latest bout of insanity. It is, in fact, a convertible Tesla Model 3. A Huntington Beach, California facility that specializes in custom convertibles, Newport Convertible Engineering, has essentially combined a Nissan Cross-Cabriolet and a Tesla Model 3.

What NCE have done is they've taken a fast, efficient, relatively good-looking family sedan, and stripped of any redeemable features it may have ever possessed. Gone is the serene peace and quiet of electric motoring, gone are the days of chassis rigidity, and gone are the days of storage space.

In its place sits wind noise, more chassis flex than the Titanic, and a trunk full of tenting material. However, if you have $39,500 burning a hole in your pocket, feel free to hand over your car for three months, and in return, you'll have the most compromised Tesla Roadster fantasy experience of your life.
