Sources at Lexus say that final reconciliation of LC convertibles has not yet been completed, but that the vehicle will be ready to meet retailers in the near future and possibly as soon as this year. But those inside the sources would still not confirm the biggest issue of LC convertible: if it will use a canopy or a collapsible hardtop. The concept shown in Detroit had no roof and let us speculate on what type of ceiling the production version will have.
We should place our bets on the car with a soft top because a folding metal roof is very complicated and can be difficult to pack on LC. A soft top would also compliment LC's appearance, while a hardtop could ruin the car's body lines. With the roof down, the production car should look like the concept.
