Lexus sources say the final reconciliation of the LC convertible has not yet been completed, but the vehicle will be ready to hit dealers in the near future and possibly as soon as this year. But the internal sources will still not confirm the biggest question about LC convertible: whether it will use a fabric blanket or a folded hard top. The concept shown in Detroit did not have a roof, which allowed us to wonder what type of roof the production version would have.
We wanted to place our bets on the car that has a soft top because a folded metal roof is very complex and can be difficult to pack on LC. A soft top would also compliment LC's appearance while a hardtop could damage the car's body lines. With taken down, the production car must look like the concept.
